We kicked off this process last month, when you guys nominated several thousand songs to be considered Song Of The Summer 2013, and after tabulating your nominations, we set up a poll and you voted for one of six songs — from a ballot that included excellent summer jams by Kanye West, Disclosure, Vampire Weekend, and more. It was quite a horse race! But there can be only one winner. And that winner is …

Shocked? You shouldn’t be. It was a landslide, as you can see by the breakdown below. “Get Lucky” got nearly 50 PERCENT of the total vote. Mandate! That left five candidates fighting over the remaining half of the pie, much of which was crushed by Vampire Weekend. Kanye, lamentably, came in dead last. A cruel summer, indeed.

Here’s how the pie got gobbled:

So with the coronation behind us, the reign of “Get Lucky” has officially begun, and with it, the summer of 2013. Thanks for voting! Let us know in the comments what else will be comprising your playlists, soundtracking your summer.
