Well, we’re into July now, and where I live, this is about the middle of summer.
So here’s my personal summer playlist! It always puts me in a good mood on the way to the lake or any other summer destination.
A few songs are actually Japanese but I added them anyway just because they’re essential summer songs for me. But since the majority of the list is Korean, I just labeled it as Kpop, haha…. Oh, and since it is a personal list, it might be a bit biased, (and some might show up again in another personal list I’m planning later on, heh).
Hope you find something you like in this list.
Here’s the list:
- KinKi Kids – Natsu no Ousama
- Miyavi – Ashita, Genki ni Naare
- nobodyknows+ – Kokoro Odoru
- SM Town – Hello! Summer
- Whale & JoKwon – Dunk Shoot
- Popsicle – I’ll Love You Until It Snows In Summer
- SM Town – Summer In Dream
- Lee Jung – Summer Holidays
- FT Island – Don Quixote’s Song
- Seo Taiji – Moai

KinKi Kids – Natsu no Ousama
…it’s really hard to find KinKi Kids songs online these days. Therefore, I can’t post any here. Look for it and you’ll probably find one before it’s deleted. But this is my ultimate summer song.
Miyavi – Ashita, Genki ni Naare
This actually feels like an early summer/spring song to me. But I’m putting it here because it’s nice to relax to on a cool day.
nobodyknows+ – Kokoro Odoru
When I first heard this song, it was summer. I played it almost every day that year and never got tired of it. Therefore, it belongs on this list.
SM Town – Hello! Summer
No summer is complete without having listened to this song at least once!
Whale & JoKwon – Dunk Shoot
Perfect for singing along to while driving on a summer day. The lyrics talk about how “yabalabahiya” is a magic word that makes your wishes come true.
Popsicle – I’ll Love You Until It Snows In Summer
This is a cute and relaxing song~
SM Town – Summer In Dream
Kind of a companion song to Hello! Summer.
Ah~ Jaewon… *sigh*
Lee Jung – Summer Holidays
A nice change of pace in rhythm.
FT Island – Don Quixote’s Song
I love singing out loud to this song in the car! The lyrics are an anthem to hope and making life your own.
Seo Taiji – Moai
CN Blue – Sweet Holiday
Big Bang – Sunset Glow
Block B – Tell Them
1TYM – Hot
hide – Rocket Dive
HyunA – Bubble Pop
Brave Girls – Easily ft.Skull
Jo Kwon – Lipstick
soul’d out – Dream Drive
