1. Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell
Surprising no one, Robin Thicke stole the top spot of the summer with his insanely popular hit. Tying and breaking records all summer, it continues to be a chart-topper, though it did finally cede the number one spot to Katy Perry’s Roar this week.
2. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons
Imagine Dragons’ debut album was released last September and is still enjoying huge success over a year later. Radioactive is the second single off that album, and was a radio DJ favorite on both alternative and top 40 stations all summer long.
3. Get Lucky by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams
Daft Punk’s lyrically simple dance club hit made the number 3 spot, but the real winner here may be Pharrell, who was featured on 2 of the top 3 songs of the summer.
4. We Can’t Stop by Miley Cyrus
Perhaps propelled into popularity by Miley’s infamous twerking escapades, We Can’t Stop is undeniably catchy. With a love-to-hate-it fan base of millions, this is one song that won’t get out of our head anytime soon.
5. Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton
The Thrift Shop duo that skyrocketed to fame over the last year has spent many a week on the Billboard charts. Their latest single Can’t Hold Us which propelled their album, the Heist, to over a million copies sold.
6. Cruise by Florida Georgia Line featuring Nelly
The only country song to crack the top 10, Cruise is the perfect song for, well, cruising down the backroads or laying poolside on a hot summer day. If you’re lucky enough to keep the summer fun going into September, this is a great tune to add to your playlist.
7. Mirrors by Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake is no stranger to chart-topping hits, so it should come as no surprise that Mirrors was a radio favorite throughout the summer months.
8. Treasure by Bruno Mars
Bruno Mars’s latest single brought a retro-vibe to the summer. His versatility was showcased yet again, and leaves little doubt that he will be returning to the top of the charts many more times in the future.
9. Cups (Pitch Perfect’s When I’m Gone) by Anna Kendrick
This surprise hit from the teen favorite Pitch Perfect’s soundtrack is one of summer’s best sing-a-longs.
