It's about this time of year; early June, when you open the eternal "roll down the windows" or "turn on the AC" debate, and freeze-pops become a viable hydration alternative, that what kind of music you are playing in your car becomes VERY important. If you're rolling down Mass Ave with open windows and bumping Return of the Mack, you may get some strange looks (I maintain that it's a great song). Here is a brief rundown of songs that are in the running for Song of the Summer; meaning, if you play this in a crowd of people, half will know it and sing along, and the other half will feel inadequate immediately look it up on iTunes when they get home. Understandably, nearly all of these are hip-hop.
Roscoe Dash - Show Out
B.O.B. - Past My Shades
Drake - Miss Me (ft. Lil Wayne)
Big K.R.I.T. - See Me On Top
LCD Soundsystem - Dance Yrself Clean
Kanye West - Power
Young Jeezy - Lose My Mind (ft. Plies)
