Guys, we're living in a modern crisis: there's not an obvious choice for Song of The Summer. There are contenders, certainly, but nothing that dominated airwaves and set the scene for cookouts and beach parties like 2013's Get Lucky or 2012's "Gangnam Style" (I'm not mentioning last year's big hit because I'm still irritated as soon as I think about it).
So the responsibility is ours. WHAT IS THE SONG OF 2015'S SUMMER? Is it:
Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix), by OMI? This one's catchy, it's positive, it doesn't degrade women as much as Blurred Lines, and most importantly, Isla has this great dance she does to it.
See You Again, by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth? My gut feel is NO because it's depressing, but there are a few instances of depressing songs as summer anthems (see Green Day's Time of Your Life).
Can't Feel My Face, by The Weeknd. It's groovy, it's mellow, it's somewhere we've all been. But does it have IT, that timeless summer quality?
I Really Like You, by Carley Rae Jepson. Jepson's already a pop queen, and I've tortured Lyle singing this song so much that it actually gives me life, so this may be my pick.
I Know There's Gonna Be Good Times, by Jamie XX ft. Young Thug & Popcaan. Just writing that out makes me feel old because who the hell are these people, but this dark horse of a song is great for repeat value.
Worth It, by Fifth Harmony. I actually hate this song, but it's freaking inescapable and that may make it a contender.
Thoughts? Anything I've missed? THIS IS IMPORTANT, GUYS.
