New Music For The Summer

Today is Music Monday, and I have been waiting for five days to share some new music.

The company I work for once had an internal newsletter in 2005 and 2006, and I was in charge of writing the music section. Since I receive advanced copies of songs before they are released for purchase, I would create a list of my top picks that I felt the readers should listen for; I also wrote reviews of newly released CD’s.

Due to a lack of time, I will give you less talk and more music. In the audio player below, there are 13 samples of songs that I feel will be strong this summer. Since and iTunes only give a short sample that is typically not much help in deciding if the song should be purchased, I have created longer samples that range between 30 seconds to a minute long. If you like any of the song samples, then buy the songs and play them at your barbeque or party in confidence; they are all Trey-recommended.

 1. “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift
 2. “Jump” by Flo Rida featuring Nelly Furtado
 3. “Hotel Room Service” by Pitbull
 4. “Use Somebody” by Kings Of Leon
 5. “On My Way” by Billy Boy On Poison
 6. “Patron Tequila” by Paradiso Girls featuring Lil’ Jon
 7. “Crazy Possessive” by Kaci Battaglia
 8. “She Ain’t Got…” by LeToya
 9. “Wanted” by Jessie James
10. “Now I’m That Bitch” by Livvi Franc
11. “Jars” by Chevelle
12. “Whiskey Hangover” by Godsmack
13. “Booty Dew” by GS Boyz

Of these, “Jump” is my personal favorite; Nelly Furtado’s vocals along with the beats will keep any party or nightclub dance floor moving this summer. Pitbull’s “Hotel Room Service” gets bonus points since it samples the melody from the great dance hit “Push The Feeling On” by The Nightcrawlers. “Patron Tequila” will also be a hot party song this season. Even though “Use Somebody” and “Crazy Possessive” have already been out for awhile, I still feel both songs will continue to be popular during the summer (and some of my readers may not have heard them yet).
