These Are The 20 Best Songs of Summer 2015

These Are The 20 Best Songs of Summer 2015:

What exactly is a “Song of Summer?” Back in July of 1965, it was a generation-defining tune that was conceived from a certain Beach Boy’s first acid trip entitled “California Girls.” In more recent years, however, this [totally arbitrary] title has been handed down according to Billboard charts and YouTube play-counts. So in an effort to save you from another “Fancy” summer, we compiled the 20 best singles released in 2015 thus far. Some of these you certainly have already heard, while others may still be hiding under-the-radar, but all of them deserve spots on every summer party playlist.
