Song of the Summer?

So almost every year there are a few songs that can be touted as being the coveted "song of the summer".

You know the one, it's that song / track that comes on when you're at a festival trying to dance in wellies after being awake for 39 and three quarter straight hours and suddenly everyone goes wild, smiles and somehow finds a little bit of extra energy to jump up and down. When you trudge back to the campsite it's the beat that you walk / bounce back to the tent with whirring around your head, it's the track that every time you hear for the rest of the year you get taken back to that moment in the summer when you realised what a rather marvellous musical creation it was.

Last year (for me) it was a toss up between Dizzee Rascal and Armand Van Helden - Bonkers (particularly the 2many DJs mix) and Major Lazer - Pon de Floor.

The year before I think you'd be brave to deny the title to MIA - Paper Planes. Particularly after that video that recently came out!

I have no idea what it will be this year, you would normally have an idea by May but I'm really not sure, perhaps it's yet to be released? Maybe it's already been doing the rounds, as many previous ones have, before the summer has really started to rear it's head?

Will another 2many DJs remix get it? Crookers - We Love Animals perhaps?

Suggestions please!!!

Prestidge is suggesting: George Benson - On Broadway
