Saturday's forecast may call for rain in Seattle, clouds and temperatures in the 50's and 60's in San Francisco, and temperatures in the mere 70's in Los Angeles, but, believe it or not, summer is in full gear.

Just like how the British have their own special annual race to the top of the charts during Christmas, America has always had a special affinity for some purely bright and warm songs of Summer. The pop charts are always flooded with these songs (see: "California Gurls", "Umbrella", "Best I Ever Had", etc.), but the indie community sees their fair share of these songs as well.

The first of three such songs that will surely dominate Last.fm charts of users of all kinds is "Go Outside" by New York City via San Diego band Cults. The song is absolutely infectious and should indeed inspire you to back away from your computer and exit the great indoors:

"Rill Rill" by Sleigh Bells is actually one of the more uncharacteristically quieter songs from their excellent debut Treats, but it's easily the most danceable and its steady beat is downright hypnotic:

Because it's a slightly fresher release, we're going with the 'Armour Love Remix' version of last year's fantastic Major Lazer's "Can't Stop Now" over the original. This version is from the recent Major Lazer/La Roux mixtape Lazerproof, which takes "Can't Stop Now" from 2009's Guns Don't Kill People, Lazers Do and mixes it up with the La Roux track "Armour Love":
