“Koolest” Throwback Songs of Summer… According to Charlie!

Charlie's picks for best summer songs of all time

This weekend we’re counting down the “Koolest” songs of summer. It was hard to select just three, but here are my favourite summertime musical throwbacks:


Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!! by the Vengaboys

Released in June of 1999, this song by Dutch dance group Vengaboys quickly shot up to #1 in the UK, before taking over the charts in North America too!


Turn Me On by Kevin Lyttle

Originally released as a Soca song in 2001, it was remixed as a dance hit for US release. “Turn Me On” became a hit across the globe, making the top 10 in fifteen countries.


Boombastic by Shaggy

Released in 1995 on his third studio album, Boombastic soon became a chart-topper worldwide.
