Michael Franti & Spearhead – “The Sound of Sunshine” – (2010)

Michael Franti had a huge hit in 2008/2009 and this was the follow-up single to that hit. While it didn’t match it in terms of success (or pure catchiness), it’s still good and managed to chart in the U.S. and a few European countries (and Japan). Michael Franti’s songs all have some kind of reggae roots in them, but this one is more of a pop rock track. The other thing I like about his music is that it is always positive. This is just an upbeat, happy song that is perfect for summer. It’s really hard to dislike.
