Song Of The Summer?

Recently, MTV held a poll to decide what the song of this summer is.  Every summer there's that one song that really blows up.  That song is labeled, "Song Of The Summer".  Thinking back, I can't seem to remember many definite choices for this honor.  Rihanna's hit, "Umbrella", is widely considered 2007's summer song.  I can't really argue with that choice.  The winner of this year's MTV poll was none other than Lady Gaga.  Her newest single, "Alejandro", is now given the pressure of becoming the song of the summer.  The single has already gained a massive amount of airplay over the last couple weeks. It's also climbing the Hot 100 and Pop charts.  Given Lady Gaga's track record, I wouldn't be surprised if "Alejandro" shoots to #1.

Here's how the MTV poll looked:

  • "California Gurls" - Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg
  • "Airplanes" - B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams
  • "OMG" - Usher featuring
  • "Alejandro" - Lady Gaga
  • "My First Kiss" - 3OH!3 featuring Ke$ha
I can understand all of those choices except for "My First Kiss".  That song just doesn't have the same power as the others.  I still haven't heard it on the radio even just once.  By just looking at the list, you can see that features are extremely popular.  "Alejandro" is the only song on the list without another featured artist.

I voted for "Alejandro".  If you voted, which song did you choose?  If you missed the poll, which song would you have chosen?  Do you think the voters chose the right song of the summer?  Leave a comment with your choice, maybe the poll forgot the real song of the summer.
