We’ll always associate certain songs with this year — records that took the radio by storm and ones that we Can’t. Stop. Singing! You know, songs like Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky,’ Imagine Dragons‘ ‘Radioactive,’ Lorde‘s ‘Royals,’ Bruno Mars‘ ‘Locked Out of Heaven,’ and Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines,’ Feat. T.I. and Pharrell — which have all been nominated for 2014’s Record of the Year. So who should take home the accolade?

Recorded of the Year is awarded to the artist, producer and recording engineer for the single’s overall performance and production, and is no easy feat. Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ kicked off this year’s summer hits. The disco-funk track highlights Pharrell Williams falsetto and ties in nicely ’70s influences with EDM beats. The song is also nominated for Best Song by a Duo/Group, while the album ‘Random Access Memories’ got three nods.

Imagine Dragons are bringing a much-needed rock edge to pop music. The apocalyptic ‘Radioactive’ radiates energy — with a little drama. The anthem received another Grammy nomination for Best Rock Performance.

Lorde has proven to be double-threat in the music world — singing and writing hit songs! ‘Royals’ is undoubtedly one of the biggest singles of the year and for good reason: Lorde’s smoky drawl, combined with that crazy-catchy beat, is music gold.

Bruno Mars is no stranger to performing radio-ready hits. The singer released a ton of hits in 2013, but ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ remains the biggest. From Bruno’s powerhouse vocals to the Police-esque melodies, this track promises to be one of the superstar’s signatures.

One of the most popular — and controversial — songs of the year is Robin Thick’s ‘Blurred Lines.’ The Pharell-produced track is undeniably catchy and got a lot of attention, even before the risque music video dropped.

What’s your pick for Record of the Year? You can vote once an hour until the polls close at 7:59PM ET on Jan. 26, 2014.
