Nothing is more white than debating the hottest Top 40 song of the summer. Except debating the ‘Song of the Song of the Summer.’ You know, the best of the best song of the summer of all time. The kinda song that harkens back to finger-banging your way through Camp Anawanna in the summer of ’96. Every student of the art of summer jams knows that the song typically comes out in March or April and is force fed into our skull by the record companies like a Stalin-led USSR propaganda campaign. Barring residual ear bleeding and Van Ggoth-esque self inflicted mutilation, you will hear this song no less than 700 times at brunches, BBQ, cliche beach bon fires and other large collections of white people. So Revelers what is the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) song of the summer? Tweet at us (@EntryRevel) or answer below.
(Our picks are below)
Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepson
If white girls had a theme song or professional wrestling entrance music it would be this. This song is the reason for global warming.
Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO
This mainstream electronic beat ushered in the EDM scene and made Molly cooler than POGs were in the 4th grade.
I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas
It wouldn’t be a Bar Mitzvah or wedding if this didn’t pump out of the DJ’s crackling woofers as grandma tries not to break a hip after a little too much Zinfandel.
Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke
This song ruined Thicke’s marriage and condoned date rape, without saying as much. Needless to say, it changed the game.
Rock Show by Blink 182
On probably the mostly cleverly named album of all time, ‘take off your pants and jacket,, this is my personal favorite. Simple, not really well written and epitomizes early 2000’s pop-punk.
Summergirls by LFO
Nothing dropped panties faster than this jam in middle school.
Don’t Steal My Sunshine by Len
Bet you forgot about this one like the world about Len.
