So here we are: After a contentious polling process and thousands of votes cast, the results are in! And your song of the summer is …
Yes, it’s “Seasons” by Future Islands! As titles go, it’s 75-percent less appropriate than “Summer” by Calvin Harris, but as songs go, it’s a deserving winner. Just this week, “Seasons” broke into the Top 40 at alternative radio, which is pretty impressive for a song that debuted in January and had its huge viral moment in March. But it’s a great song, and that’s what great songs do: stick with us, find new ears, transcend.
Here’s how the voting broke down: “Seasons” walked away with 30.1% of the total vote, crushing its closest competition, Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX’s “Fancy,” Chromeo’s “Jealous (I Ain’t With It),” and Royksopp & Robyn’s “Do It Again,” which came in a closely clustered 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places, respectively, each garnering about 11% of the total vote. In dead last was Nico & Vinz’s “Am I Wrong,” which managed a Green Party-esque 1.36%. You can see all those results below. But before we get to all that … let’s dance!
Thanks for voting, guys. Have a happy 4th!
