There's always one song that seems to saturate the summer, blasting from rooftops, beach houses, BBQs and passing cars. It's that one song you find yourself involuntarily humming and the one song that, in the future, will immediately transport you back to your summer escapades.
Below are 10 potential candidates from 2010, plus hit songs of summers past.
Right now it's Katy Perry's "California Gurls," B.o.B's "Airplanes" and Usher's "OMG" that are dominating the airwaves, but it's less clear which song will keep us bopping long enough to be crowned the "song of the summer."
In this week's Summer Issue, NYMag interestingly points out a common denominator in this summer's lineup. The man they've dubbed the 'hit whisperer,' Dr. Luke, is behind three of the top contenders, Katy Perry's "California Gurls," Kei$ha's "Your Love in My Drug" and is most excited about his newest track, Taio Cruz's "Dynamite," (the only one above so new it doesn't have a video yet).
