Hamptons 100 Songs of Summer #10

“You and Your Heart” by Jack Johnson

From the first chord of this 2010 song that reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and  #1 on the Triple A chart—that’s Adult Album Alternative—the guitar bangs out the rhythm of a rolling ocean and you’re immersed in the mellow, feel-good surf vibe that Jack Johnson has defined since his debut album, Brushfire Fairytales, in 2001. Tapping into the aesthetic of Johnson’s filmmaker side, the video for “You and Your Heart” truly brings home the endless-summer feel, putting you on the board and in the water with Johnson, a former surf champion. When he sings “you and your heart shouldn’t feel so far apart,” we hear a plea to not to let the summertime sensation we all love ever get too far away. No worries there, as long as Johnson (and the rest of the Top 100 Songs of Summer, of course) is close by.
