Sunburned and sore, and soaking wet from a morning thunderstorm. Just another Monday in July.

1. Mungo Jerry – In the Summertime

A 1970 single from a pack of hirsute Brits named after one of T.S. Eliot’s practical cats.

2. Foster the People – Houdini

From the L.A. scenesters’ debut, Torches, which came out a few weeks ago. This is for BT. Also check out their song, “Color on the Walls (Don’t Stop),” which reminds me that I should really finish painting my kitchen.

3. Weezer – Island in the Sun

From the eponymous 2001 record, aka The Green Album. This is the Spike Jonze version of the video, which the band produced after MTV didn’t like the Marcos Siega version.

4. Cher Lloyd – Swagger Jagger

Worse than Rebecca Black’s Friday? You decide. And if you get confused by what Ms. Lloyd is saying, or simply want to karaoke, there’s an “OFFICIAL LYRIC VERSION.”

5. Best Coast – Sunny Adventure

From this year’s split single with Jeff the Brotherhood.

Enjoy. Have a great week.
