Ahhhh the Summer Song. In pop music, having your song declared "The Song of the Summer" is like winning the big race. The designation can put you on the fast-track to pop stardom (as it did for Katy Perry and her song "I Kissed A Girl" back in 2008). In honor of the beginning of everybody's favorite season (well, at least ours) which officially started on Wednesday, we put together this list of the 10 most recent Songs of Summer. To compile our list, we perused Billboard's Hot 100 Chart archives to see which songs were heating up the radio waves. We also hit up Google Analytics to see which summer jams the MetroLyrics users were searching for most that year!
