There are certain things that just scream summer, like icy cocktails and the crystal blue waters of one of the hottest poolside patios in San Diego. At the Poolhouse, summer is what we’re about and we love everything that reminds us of all the great times we’ve had – including the songs of summer that always bring back instant memories. 

Last year was an amazing year for summertime music. In fact, some of summer 2018’s top songs have stuck with us to the point that we can’t stop daydreaming about hanging out at the pool and recreating some of that summer magic. Which songs of last summer are still on our minds and have us craving some time at the pool? Here is our fav 10 from last summer.

One Kiss – Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa

One Kiss is a song that not only reminds you of last summer, but summers long gone by. It has a smooth, classic summer vibe with a bit of retro feel due to the touch of a 90s era techno beat. There’s nothing better than sitting back, cold summer cocktail in hand, and listing to this song for making you feel like all your troubles have melted away into the summer sun. 

I Like It – Cardi B, Bad Bunny, J Balvin

I Like It by Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin was so hot that even Rolling Stone named it as “THE” top song of summer in 2018. The tropical mix of trap music with a hot salsa beat make this a pool-side necessity, especially when you’re chillin and checkin out the view at the hottest rooftop bar in San Diego. 

Make Me Feel – Janelle Monae

You can’t imagine a summertime pool party in San Diego without Make Me Feel by Janelle Monae. This song is the perfect blend of a languid, sultry beat and an upbeat charge that every great song of summer should have. Make Me Feel is one of those songs that will have the summer of 2018 – and 2019 – on your mind for a long time to come. 

The Middle – Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey

Remember last summer, hanging out by the pool with your friends and spontaneously busting out to sing along with this song every time it came on?  This catchy beat was so hot last summer that you still hear it blasting out at every turn. When you hear The Middle, turn it up and then head to the Poolhouse for fun times that will be even more memorable than the ones you had last summer. 

Dancing – Kylie Minogue

“When I go out, I wanna go out dancing” …well, maybe after a lush summer day spent lounging in a chair at the Poolhouse. Kylie Minogue has made a name for herself as the Queen of summertime hits, and last summer’s Dancing proved to be no exception. This is the song that will have you daydreaming about afternoons by the pool and hot summer nights on the dance floor.  

Summertime Magic – Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino is known for his deep lyrics, but Summertime Magic is nothing but a pure summer beat that’s infused with carefree optimism and a laid-back vibe. It’s impossible to hear Summertime Magic and not be instantly transformed to the steamy days of summer 2018. We’re not quite ready to let this song go yet, so expect it to be the backdrop of a few new memories you make this year at the Poolhouse

High Horse – Kacey Musgraves

Not every summertime romance is meant to last, in fact some of them you’ve seen enough of long before your poolside days are over. High Horse by Kacey Musgraves was the song last summer to say goodbye to the one that just didn’t make the cut. In 2019, this song is sure to bring back a few memories while kickin back with your friends in a poolside daybed. 

Boys -Lizzo

What would summer be without a tribute to boys hanging out poolside. In 2018, Boys by Lizzo was the song that was meant to accompany a little poolside sightseeing. The only problem is how easy it is to get distracted by the urge to get up and move every time this song comes on. 

Friends – Marshmello Feat Anne-Marie

A little poolside romance is always high on the summertime bucket list in San Diego. Unfortunately, the object of your affection doesn’t always reciprocate – which brings us to Friends by Marshmello and Anne-Marie. This is the song of 2018 that had friends gossiping around the pool about the one who was getting friend-zoned in a big way.  

Girls Like You – Maroon 5, Cardi B

Maroon 5 is practically synonymous with the songs of summer, but last year’s Girls Like You took summertime hits to the next level with the infusion of Cardi B’s smooth voice. This was the song that you listened to as you sank back into the poolside daybed, cold drink in hand. Now’s the time to relieve that experience at the Pool House.
