Music Monday: Songs of Summer 2012

Mashable

"Call Me Maybe" wasn't the only summer song this year. These songs were some of our summer favorites here at Mashable.

We love music year-round, but the perfect song is especially timeless on the perfect summer afternoon. You probably spent many a summer day rocking out to "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People last year or "California Gurls" by Katy Perry in 2010 -- whether you admit to it or not.

While Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" will likely live on as the definitive pop song for the summer of 2012, take a listen to some of our other favorite summer jams. The crisp fall weather will soon begin in many parts of the world, but you can always go back to the songs of summer for some audio sunshine.
