Let's put together a summer mix

What are your suggestions for some good songs to listen to on a hot summer's day whilst sitting on one's deck, sipping a nice pale ale and waiting for the steak to finish cooking on the barbecue (medium rare).

I'll start with: Summer Madness by Kool and the Gang

Forgoing the obvious Will Smith hit, I'll throw out:

It'z A Good Ass Day by Tha Dogg Pound

I actually made a summer two disc mix a few years ago, and had these songs on it:
Summer-War
Summertime Rolls - Jane's Addiction
Buggin' - The Flaming Lips

By the way, where do you live? I'll be right over. That seems like a fine way to spend the day!

Some great suggestions so far. I'm going to make a playlist with a lot of these songs.

Here are a few more:

Wouldn't It Be Nice - The Beach Boys (obvious choice)
Everyday - Buddy Holly
Soul Flower - The Pharcyde
Through The Glow - Laura Veirs
