Beaches, BBQ, warm nights, friends – just a few of the ingredients that make for a great summer, but at Pandora we have to admit that we’re a bit biased when it comes to what we thinks is the most important one: music. A single song can capture the vibe of summer and leave an impression for years to come. The one you listen to with the windows down cruising down the highway, or that’s blaring as you cannonball into the deep end. It’s the thing that years from now can transport you back to THIS summer. Don’t believe us? We dare you to blast Summer Hits of the 90s and not be transported to a time of ill-advised fashion but admittedly awesome music.
With pool season just around the corner, we took a stab at predicting what this year’s Top Songs of Summer would be, using the combined knowledge of Pandora’s team of music experts and what you have already been telling us with your thumbs. The result is a mix of EDM, Hip-Hop and Country songs that are hotter than a sunburn. Read on for the songs you will hear again (and again) all summer long.
