A Summer Love...An Ice Cream Cone

There's nothing this writer loves more than summer love and ice cream! Driving into work today, I was smitten by the sun as it pierced my eyes and the most soothing love songs played on my CD player. Mornings like these make it easier for me to get to work. Regardless if you are in love or not, everyone appreciates the height of summer when that jam you remember from high school sneaks on the airwaves. Here are just a few summer love songs that make me all hot and hazy as the dog days of summer approach.

I Can't Help It, Michael Jackson, Sometimes heat combined with late nights can lead to uncontrollable situations. Luckily back then, we thought Mike was talking about the ladies.

Free, Deniece Williams, This song is all about being playfully coy, chasing after that fly honey all summer long. Who doesn't like to be flirtatious, fun and free?

All Day Love, Cee-Lo Green, Oh, this song holds a special place in my heart. Sometimes the only thing that can get you through those long, hot days at work is the fact that you are coming home to your better half.

Guess Who Loves You More, Raheem Devaughn, This man tosses the balances as he proclaims his love. Ladies, just fall back and get swept away.

Feel Like Makin' Love, D'Angelo, What a great way to pass the time. Justmake sure the AC is on full blast!

Without You, Dwele, This has to be Dwele's best song (and the inspiration of today's title) as he outlines all the things that intertwine that makes one fall in love.

Underneath It All, No Doubt, This reggae-tinged mid-tempo song is perfect for winding down after a sweaty night out.

I Want You, Erykah Badu, Love sometimes sneaks up on your ass like an afternoon storm...Erykah says just ride through it.

Loves Light in Flight, Stevie Wonder, Regardless the season, Stevie can make you fall in love...but this song pleads for your love to make you feel like paradise. What a beautiful image!

Find A Way, Tribe Called Quest, Tribe's last jam calls for the apple of their eye to stop playing games...but that's no fun!

Settle For My Love, Musiq, This song literally pleaded to be on the list. Sometimes you have to put the honeys and the flirting aside for the one that means the world to you.

Crazy In Love, Beyonce, You will all know if my crush is out at the summer hot spot...
"tennis shoes don't even need to buy a new dress/if he ain't there ain't nobody else to impress."

All My Love, Luther Vandross, Every guy I've ever really like has loved this song, which is weird, but a thousand kisses in the summer calms all that down.

Little Red Corvette, Prince, You can have those after-the-club excursions, just remember your "pocket full of Trojans!"

Run To The Sun, The Neptunes, While you're on that weekend getaway, tell your hottie that you love them, and want to run to the sun and never come back!

Golden, Jill Scott, Finally, if there's nobody that sets your heart-a-flutter, remember to love yourself! Treat yourself with romance, and it is sure to follow!

**Bonus**
Don't Phunk With My Heart, Black Eyed Peas
, OK, I know I'll get a lot of jabs from this song...but it's hot for the summer. When your man sees your eyes straying toward a summer bunny, tell him "don't you worry 'bout a thang baby/you know you got my by the string baby."

What's on your summer jam CD?
