Open Thread: We Need To Pick A Song Of The Summer Already

Another strong contender.

Another solid contender.


You guys, it’s almost July, and we haven’t picked an official song of the summer yet! How did we let this happen?

I’m not trying to shame you or anything (yes I am), but just imagine, if you will, the fact that this weekend, at summer barbecues across the globe, we will all be pumping DIFFERENT SUMMERY ANTHEMS. That is unacceptable, and I refuse to live one more day in a world where that’s true, so we’re picking one and we’re doing it now.

So nominate some songs! There are no wrong answers, because in an ideal world, I’ll put them all together for a playlist that will be so upbeat and inspiring that it will get me to the gym almost without me realizing it! And I’ll be sculpted and tan and shiny-haired in no time AND CROP TOPS AND JEAN SHORTS WILL LOOK GOOD ON ME AND EVERYTHING.

(I said this was an ideal world, right?)

My nomination is ‘Talk Dirty To Me’ by Jason Derulo, featuring 2 Chainz, because I have no shame and I wasn’t kidding when I said there were no wrong answers. I’m legit obsessed with the horn line on that song, and I will apologize for nothing.

So what do you have to add? Let us hear it!

      I wanna get better by Bleachers (I hear it on the indie and pop stations all the time and it’s damn catchy) or Giants by Bear Hands (same as other song)

      I will have to go with the 2014 FIFA World Cup anthem “We Are One (Ole Ola)” by Pitbull (feat. Jennifer Lopez & Claudia Leitte). It has been stuck in my head pretty much since I heard it. And, yes, while the lyrics are kind of World-Cup-specific, I think the energy, vibe, etc. make it a perfect summer song.

      It’s not out yet so I can’t be 100% sure but I’m almost positive BO$$ by Fifth Harmony is going to CHANGE THE GAME

    • Lily Savage

      I think Fancy by Iggy Azalea could make at least the top 10

    • Olivia Wilson

      I vote for “Am I Wrong” by Nico & Vinz. It’s stupidly catchy.

    • Jenni

      True story: I LIKE THIS SONG. Even before Kendall Jenner messed up their intro at BBMAs

      • Jenni

        Somewhere inside me if a 12-year-old girl just dying to get out.

      • C.

        You and me both, Jenni.

    • parisc

      This has nothing to do with my love for Latin men and everything to do with my impending radio play petition, I promise. Please?!!

    • fantasymother

      That’s me on the left, dancing. The interwebs lose nothing.

      I have to sit back and let you nominate. If it was up to me you’d be singing with Peter, Paul, and Mary.

    • I-g-g-y

      Fancy and/or Talk Dirty!

      Michael Jackson featuring Justin Timberlake “Love never felt so good”.

      TALK DIRTY. Yes. That is my vote, because every time it plays I literally cannot stop myself from moving around in a semi-sexual motion.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I KNOW. And the horn part plays in my mind anytime someone references the song.

    • Lara

      I’ve said this before but One Direction should have released Happily as a summer single. /melodramatic sigh

    • Kate

      Have you heard Ariana Grande’s new song?? It’s the BOMB man
