Imagine lounging atop your houseboat deck with your closest friends and family. The smell of sunscreen and lake water fills your senses. The sun is shining and you’ve got a cold beverage in your hand. It doesn’t get much better than this! There’s only one thing missing…a song playing in the background that has you swaying back and forth to the rhythm.

A good lake day playlist is a must for any houseboat vacation. From jammin’ to Bob Marley to singing along to Kokomo by The Beach Boys, there’s a song for every member of the crew–young or old.

At Callville Bay Resort & Marina, we’ve come up with the ultimate list of summer songs to add to your houseboat playlist, chosen by our staff.

“Toes” – Zac Brown Band – You don’t have to like country music to like this song.

“Kokomo” – The Beach Boys – A fun song to sing along.

“Jammin’” – Bob Marley – The classic summertime jam.

“Summertime” – Kenny Chesney – Let the memory making begin.

“Pontoon” – Little Big Town – Perfect for boating!

“Santeria” – Sublime – Get ready to sway to the beat.

“Red Red Wine” – UB40 – The song that never gets old.

“Margaritaville” – Jimmy Buffet  – Best paired with a frozen beverage in hand.

“Island Girl” – Conkarah – A fun island song to dance to.

“Boats” – Kenny Chesney – Great “feel good” song.

“Float On” – Modest Mouse – For those who like the indie bands.

“A Pirate Looks at Forty” – Jimmy Buffet – Softer, easy listening.

Of course, there are many more songs you can add to this list, we just wanted to get you started. If your group likes country music, we suggest adding some songs from this list as well.
