Have you ever heard a song on the radio that instantly transported you to a specific time in your life? Cricket Wireless got me thinking about what tracks were my favorite from this summer when they launched their “Tu Son De Verano” contest which will reward one lucky winner and their three lucky friends to attend the Alma Awards in September!
I can’t wait to hear what songs are on your list, do we like any of the same ones?!
#5 Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” has spawned tons of parodies by celebrity fans including Katy Perry, Cody Simpson, and Olympic swimmers Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, and Missy Franklin. You know you turn up the radio when it comes on!
#4 Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been” has been on rotation in my car since the spring. It has such a fun hook that it makes even cleaning the house seem like fun!
#3 Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” wasn’t a favorite when I first heard it but it was one of those tunes that grew on me. I love it so much that it convinced me to purchase Gotye’s third studio album, “Making Mirrors”. Do yourself a favor and check-out his previous two albums as well.
#2 One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” is probably the most embarrassing song on the list since, well, I’m over the age of 30. I love these guys, don’t judge me.
#1 Maroon 5 and Wiz Khalifa’s “Payphone” is my top song of the summer because it reminds me of the “I Heart Radio Pool Party” I attended at the Fontainebleau with my friends. Yes Adam Levine and the boys were there to sing it live and he is even hotter in person!
