These are songs that mention California sunshine aka the California Sun, taken from the main list of songs that mention California. There are a lot more California songs that mention the sun, sunrise, sunset, suntans, etc., but these are songs that use the idea that California is a land of abundant sunshine with little rain or snow. Some of the songs on this list mention inclement weather in contrast to the sunshine that is expected in the state, or they just mention that it rarely rains or snows in the state, which is the same as saying it's sunny most the time. In some songs the singer is outside of California where the weather is bad and the singer wishes for some California sunshine. They're all good for this list. Don't forget your sunblock.
