Nothing beats a beautiful sunny day, except maybe a song about a beautiful sunny day. Here are the greatest songs about the sun ever written, ranked by your votes. Many of the best songs about the sun are happy tunes celebrating the sunshine, but some good sun songs are about missing the sun when it's gone. Tons of classic rock artists, country musicians and pop stars have written great sun songs.

The Beatles have two of the all-time best songs about the sun in their catalog. “Good Day Sunshine” and “Here Comes the Sun” were both big hits for the group. Garth Brooks' country party anthem, “Ain't Goin' Down ('til the Sun Comes Up) is also on this list of the top songs about the sun, as is “Waitin' on a Sunny Day” by Bruce Springsteen.

Noah & the Whale's bouncy track “5 Years Time (Sun, Sun, Sun)” is another great song for sunshine. Bill Withers' “Ain't No Sunshine” is a great slow burner for when you're feeling low.

Which sun song makes you want to turn up your car stereo? Vote it up to the top of this list and add any songs about the sun we may have missed.
