Summer Music: Ryan Tedder's Mixtape

Monday, July 04, 2011

Ryan Tedder, hitmaker and frontman of One Republic.

We’re kicking off a new series today; a summer music series. Throughout the month of July we’ll be talking with a different celebrity guest about what songs say summer to them. Our first guest is One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder.

In addition to his work with One Republic, Tedder has also famously penned and produced some of the catchiest hits performed by Beyonce, Rhianna, Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, Adele, Jennifer Lopez, and Jennifer Hudson, to name just a few. He joins us from sister station KUVO in Denver.

Ryan Tedder's five favorite songs of summer are:

  • “Sloop John B” (The Beach Boys)
  • “Holiday” (Vampire Weekend)
  • “Solsbury Hill” (Peter Gabriel)
  • “Ain’t Goin’ Down Til The Sun Comes Up” (Garth Brooks)
  • “Lovers in Japan” (Coldplay)
