The actor-musician says this 2006 hit, from the Cee Lo Green-led duo, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, “is incredible. I used to sing it over and over -- that was the best summer.”

Lea Michele’s current jam: Miley Cyrus' "Malibu”

“I’m obsessed with it, and I can’t wait to see it live,” says Michele -- who once covered Cyrus’ 2009 hit “The Climb” in an episode of Glee -- of the new top 10 pop-rock summer-themed single that calls out beaches and blue skies.
