Any ideas?

So, I've been trying to compile a list of songs for the summer.  An acoustic power ballad play list. (Shazam.)  Thus far I have:  

1. Lost in My Mind by The Head and the Heart

2. Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes.

Unfortunately, you can't make a good mix with only two songs.  So, I implore you, what is your favorite summery acoustic power ballad?  Just post your tune!



  1. Will you post the full list? And then I'd like a copy of the CD. :) Like the first two.

  2. 1. Heartbreak World -- Matt Nathanson
    2. You'll Ask For Me -- Tyler Hilton
    3. Save You -- Matthew Perryman Jones
    4. Roll Your Windows Down -- Casey Shea
    5. Down -- Jason Walker
    6. Stolen -- Dashboard Confessional
    7. Lay 'Em Down -- Needtobreathe
    8. Little Lies -- Dave Barnes
    9. Steer -- Missy Higgins
    10. Cecilia -- Simon & Garfunkel
    11. Lady Light -- The Damnwells
    12. Flightless Bird, American Mouth -- Iron & Wine

    here are my contributions! please do post the whole list! love how you ask for everyone's suggestions :) and ps. LOVE the two you posted! adding them to my own summer songs!
