Colin McEnroe Show: 2011 Song Of The Summer
Our panelists hotly debate the song of the summer for 2011.
What makes a summer song?
Joan Holliday says two things: heat and joy. The Internet has sort of informally agreed Katy Perry's Last Friday Night is the 2011 song of the summer, but our panelists weren't so sure.
It's certianly true the song of the summer is NOT the best song released in the vicinity of one given summer. If it were otherwise, the song of the summer of 1989 would be "Here Comes Your Man" by the Pixies instead "Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx.
