The summer is here, and it is time to relax! While you are happily sunning yourselves or looking enviously at those that are remember that your time to relax by the jukebox will come eventually. Music plays such a huge part in the way that we relax, and that is why you often hear about ‘summer anthems’. So what are the ‘summer anthems’ of this summer? There are quite a few big contenders, but we decided to narrow it down to just three of our favourites:
1. Iggy Azalea, Fancy.
Iggy Azalea has become more and more popular, and this song really shows why. The heavy beat takes the listeners through the song without really realising that they are listening: they are just so swept up by it. The music video parodies the film Clueless, which we love.
2. Ed Sheeran, Sing.
Most people are used to crying along with Ed Sheeran songs, so it will come as a relief to many that they can actually smile to this one. The beat is uplifting, the lyrics are hilarious, and the song still has that Sheeran magic that makes it really mean something to the listener.
3. Rita Ora, I will never let you down.
Is there anything Rita Ora can’t do? She has been around for quite a few years now, but is still making incredible songs like this summery number. It gets feet tapping, and heads bopping, and before long people are dancing around together. And you can’t ask much more from a summer anthem
So, did your favourite summer anthem make it onto our top three or do you think that we have forgotten some of the greatest songs playing at the moment? Let us know what is on your Jukebox at the moment.
