#FBF Summer Anthems We Forget To Listen To
Every summer a few pop tunes rise to the top and become summer anthems. For three long months, these songs are basically inescapable. They’re on the radio, playing in every single store you walk into and by the time Labor Day rolls around, a part of you wishes they never existed in the first place. Now that our heads have had sufficient time to recover, let’s reflect on some summer anthems we totally forget to listen to:
LFO – Summer GirlsOK, so maybe we’re all just trying to forget this band ever existed, but sorry ya’ll it’s reality and for about three months in 1999 we all LOVED this shit.
Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me MaybeCarly Rae is an international treasure and her latest record “Emotion” is amaaaaazing. Our intro to Carly was the smash “Call Me Maybe,” but she ain’t no one hit wonder. She just keeps getting better and better.
The Ataris – Boys of SummerDon’t even try to front… You know you loved on this cover.
Magic – Rude This band and this tune kind of came out of nowhere, but hot damn did folks just die for this song in 2013.
Len – Steal My Sunshine Without Len, would we ever even spell out L-A-T-E-R?
Nelly – Hot In Herre Everyone still says “here” with an odd Nelly-esque accent thanks to this banger.
LMFAO – Party Rock Anthem This song gives me the idiot shivers, but it’s been played well over a BILLION times on YouTube so clearly people love it and I’m the weirdo.
