What’s Your Favorite 2013 Summer Song? – Readers Poll
It’s the last week in August and fall is quickly approaching! It’s time to get in that one last trip to the beach, have one more cookout and vote for the best party song of the summer!
Week after week, Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’ has owned the airwaves. The provocative jam gets us dancing every time we hear it — which has been a lot! Nevertheless, this track has single-handedly made 2013 the singer’s year.
Four years ago, we hopped off the plane at LAX with our dreams and our cardigan. Oh, wait, that was Miley Cyrus, who claimed the summer of 2009 with her hit ‘Party in the USA.’ This June, she was back with a vengeance — and a lot of TMI. Despite its odd video, ‘We Can’t Stop’ twerked its way onto our summer playlists.
When the dust settled from all of the eyebrows raised by Robin and Miley, there was Daft Punk. ‘Get Lucky,’ the laidback jam celebrating staying up all night to, well, you know, getting lucky.
Katy Perry embraced her wild side for ‘ROAR,’ her anthemic new single. The singer encourages fans to stand up for what they believe in, all the while leading by example.
Lady Gaga made yet another political statement with ‘Applause.’ Noting that she’s become as much a part of pop culture as a priceless piece of art, Mother Monster criticizes the constant need for approval.
Selena Gomez showed off her sultry side with ‘Come & Get It.’ The song, which has EDM influences sprinkled within it, was a clear announcement that Sel is mature and ready to move on from Justin Bieber.
Imagine dancing all night with One Direction. Yeah, we would be so excited we would probably forget the songs we listened to as well. The boys cranked out yet another young-and-in-love track, but who can resist this upbeat jam?
Macklemore + Ryan Lewis tackled a controversial subject for ‘Same Love,’ but the gamble paid off. In addition to earning the duo a moonman at the MTV VMAs, the song became an anthem for embracing people from all walks of life.
Emblem3 dropped their first single since the ‘X Factor,’ and the track is definitely catchy! ‘Chloe (You’re the One I Want)’ is cute and poppy, while also showing off the trio’s undeniable charm.
Capitol Cities charged into the mainstream music scene with ‘Safe and Sound.’ A toe-tapping beat paired with some awesome instrumentation made this song the perfect summer dance track.
There’s also Avicii‘s new EDM jam, ‘Wake Me Up,’ with country influences, Imagine Dragons’ ‘Radioactive,’ Jason Derulo‘s ‘The Other Side,’ Justin Timberlake‘s Take Back the Night,’ and Maroon 5‘s ‘Love Somebody.’
So… which song is your favorite summer song for this year? Vote below!
