Updated Jun 22, 2019

Summer officially arrives in the U.S. and the rest of the northern hemisphere Friday, June 21, at 11:54 a.m. in the East, 10:54 a.m. in much of the Midwest, 9:45 a.m. in the Rockies and 8:54 a.m. on the West Coast.

For the southern hemisphere, including our truckie friends in Australia and New Zealand, tomorrow is the beginning of winter. Sorry.

For many, celebrating summer’s arrival means having a suitable soundtrack. Here are seven singularly summer songs to help usher in the longest day of the year.
