I have been hailing a song of the summer since 5 years ago when it got off with LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem.
The song of the summer is different from other recognition as it should embody the fun of summer and more like the soundtrack of that year’s summer season. Here is the list:
2011 – Party Rock Anthem (LMFAO)
2012 – Call Me Maybe (Carly Rae Jepsen)
2013 – Get Lucky (Daft Punk)
2014 – Problems (Iggy Azalea and Arianna Grande)
2015 – My Type (Saint Motel)
People hailing that song by Wiz Khalifa about Paul Walker as song of the summer are crazy. Who would want an obituary to be their song of the summer.
PS. Stampede was such a snooze this year. The only memorable thing was that encounter and with picture. (See archives)
