• "Buy U a Drink" by T-Pain
• "Give It to Me" by Timbaland
• "Outta My System" by Bow Wow (featuring T-Pain)

"I love Rihanna," says the American Idol runner-up. "It's kind of ironic, [since her song is] called 'Umbrella.' It's about rain, but it's a summer song. It's got a really good vibe to it. I just love her voice." McPhee also just had to share one other recommendation: "My new single! It's called 'Love Story!' I think it's a good summer theme."

Regina Spektor's "Fidelity" is playing in Braff's stereo this summer. "It's got this whole Fiona Apple-meets-Rachel Yamagata vibe that I really enjoy," says the Scrubs star.

"My biggest summertime song is [Don Henley's] 'Boys of Summer,'" says the singer. "I just love the lyrical content. I just remember it coming out and wishing I had written it." Here's what else is on his summer playlist:

• "[My song] 'Livin' on a Prayer' ... Coast to coast at this point, you're gonna hear that song at a bar. I've heard it a lot lately, which is cool."
• "'School's Out' by Alice Cooper – that's the summer anthem that my wife blares from her car every year that my kids get out of school."
• "Beach Boys' 'Wouldn't It Be Nice.' You gotta throw the Beach Boys on a summer playlist!"
• "Any AC/DC song. It reminds me of my youth."

"I'm really in a Corinne Bailey Rae and Robin Thicke phase," says the Dreamgirls star. "I love Robin Thicke's 'Complicated' and 'Lost Without You.' It's just got a groove to it and I'm ready for the summer groove."

"I don't know if I can say the titles of some of these songs actually, [they have] bad words in them!" admits the singer. On a more PG-note, he says, "I'm still banging out the Brazilian Girls record. That's probably my favorite record right now. And The Knife. I love The Knife's record."

"I've been listening to a lot of music by dead people," says the "I Don't Want to Be" singer. "I like Donny Hathaway and Sam Cooke. [Hathaway does] a Ray Charles song called 'I Believe to My Soul.' It's on the Everything Is Everything album. You're going to lose your mind. It's incredible because it makes you happy. It's the most amazing arrangement."
