Seven for summer

I got tagged by Kimmyk.
Here are the rules: (because there are always rules!) Instructions: List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your spring/summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.
Strangely, I'm not much into new music these days. I think it goes with the "don't care much" attitude I've taken on. Still, here are 7 I can stand.
Typical Situation - Dave Matthews Band. Lately, the summers have been filled with Dave Matthews shows. Usually, I go for the up-tempo stuff like Too Much or Louisiana Bayou, but this song has been haunting me, and it took until the last show in Hershey for them to play it, proving that good things come to those who wait.
Abacab - Genesis/Umphrey's McGee - Believe it or not, this song winds up in my head more than any other song. I think I need psychotherapy to find out why, but suffice it to say there are enough cool hooks in it to make it a brain repeater. Then, when I saw Umphrey's McGee last year, don't they go and play it. Transformation complete.
Icky Thump - White Stripes. I don't know what it's about, but it's a catchy tune, even if it's a little old by now.
Testify - Daniela Cotton. Something new on the list. It's from her second album and a CD worth picking up - or downloading, which is how I get my music these days.
Blue - King's X - A brand new album from a band that has been around a long time.
On Call - Kings of Leon. I know, it's a lot of Kings, but this song is worthy, and it makes me think of the way my cat comes when I call him, which is odd for a cat.
Clint Eastwood - Gorillaz. Go figure.
As for the rules, I don't know 7 people, so if you want to play along, go ahead.
