Our new fave song
Prepare to cry
NO NO NO
June 23rd, 2010
Entertainment Weekly just printed their picks for this summer’s biggest songs. It’s a pretty obvious list filled with songs that have already topped the charts and made iTunes playlists: Katy Perry “California Gurls,” 3OH!3 feat. Ke$ha “My First Kiss,” Kanye West “Power,” B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams “Airplanes,” Usher feat. will.i.am “OMG,” Lady Gaga “Alejandro,” Travie McCoy feat. Bruno Mars “Billionaire,” Jason DeRulo “In My Head,” Carrie Underwood “Undo It” and Miley Cyrus “Can’t Be Tamed.”
All the choices make sense, considering they’re ten of the most-played tracks we’ll hear all summer long and beyond. But tastes vary, and for the sake of being different, here are ten more lesser-known tunes that can provide your stereo/iPod/computer an alternative to the norm.
Dom “Living In America”
Gauntlet Hair “I Was Thinking…”
Japandroids “Younger Us”
Magic Kids “Summer”
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart “Say No To Love”
Sleigh Bells “Ring Ring”
Washed Out feat. Caroline Polachek (Chairlift)
Wavves “Post Acid”
Wild Nothing “Chinatown”
