What's your playlist for the hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer?

The summer sun sets on Seattle. (Say that ten times fast, preferably while bumping one of these songs.)

In honor of the summer solstice, we asked listeners about their favorite summer songs. You came through with the nostalgic, the playful, and some truly excellent 80s throwbacks. 

In addition to listeners' sick jamz, host Ross Reynolds spoke to music writer Charles R. Cross and KUOW social media producer Brie Ripley. We've compiled the songs you sharedinto a KUOW summer playlist.
