With endless warm days, picnics, barbecues, and trips to the beach to look forward to in the months ahead, we’ve finally reached our goal. Rest, relaxation, and plenty of good times ahead deserve a soundtrack all to themselves, which is why summertime hit singles exist.

1) Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen: Summer 2012 wouldn’t have been complete without the emergence of 27-year-old Carly Rae Jepsen, with her girl-next door image and catchy vocals. With everyone from young kids to their parents singing along to Call Me Maybe last year, it soon became the subject of everything from club remixes to countless parodies. Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy… you know the rest!
