A couple more Song of the Summer contenders this week.


“Dreams”- Beck

Whooo boy! I’ve never been a huge Beck fan but this song grabbed me the first time I heard it and refuses to let go. And in typical Beck fashion, it’s just quirky enough to make it stand out.

In the absence of an official video, this oddball collection of clips from the 1970s Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader movie seems perfect. The moves these ladies used are pretty similar to how I dance around when I hear this song.

“Feeling OK” – Best Coast

Bethany and Bob plumb the 1980s fitness craze for their visual inspiration here. The opening track off California Nights, this absolutely shimmers and soars. The album is the perfect summer road trip disk. If you’re young and take long drives with your friends rather than middle aged with a car full of kids, that is.
