I need cute fun summer songs!

for this commercial thingamajig. Upbeat, silly, cutesy; even cloying. Organic instruments, nothing heavily programmed. Songs like Lily Allen "LDN" or Belle & Sebastian "We Are the Sleepyheads" or The Pipettes "Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me" or Saturday Looks Good to Me "Lift Me Up."

Post ideas in the comments. Please! Otherwise we're gonna get stuck corny techno song!

I totally agree with Jecca on Boy Least Likely To. O know you can't afford it, but my recommendation is Paris Hiton's "Stars Are Blind." Another would be Camera Obscura's "Let's Get Out of This Country."

But the one by The Boy Least Likely has been used in a Coke commercial already...

How about:
Islands - "Rough Gem"
Of Montreal - "Wraith Pinned to the Mist"
And if you want to be a little subversive: Xiu Xiu - "Clowne Towne."

Here are a couple ideas:
New Pornographers - "The Electric Version"
The Envelopes - "Sister in Love"
The Sea and Cake - "Afternoon Speaker"
All Girl Summer Fun Band - "Ticking Timebomb" or "Stumble Over My"
Mirah - "Person Person"
Architecture in Helsinki - "Cemetary," "It's 5!" or "Wishbone"
You might also try The Boy Least Likely To's "I'm Glad I Hitched My Apple Wagon to Your Star."

sorry I don't have any actual links.

I might suggest these:

eels - "Packing Blankets" or "I Like Birds"

The Go! Team "Everyone's a V.I.P. to Someone" , a bit produced, but nice. Actually, if you don't mind the slight over-production, anything by the Go! Team, especially "We Just Won't Be Defeated"

Matt Curreri - "Priorities"
