No one really knows what makes a song THE song of the summer.
Is it the timing, the melody, the lyrics, sheer luck, or a combination of all these things?
One thing we know for sure is you cannot create “the song of the summer.” It just happens.
Pop culture, especially music, is so fragmented. The song of the summer cuts across genre lines.
This year’s song of the summer, is Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”
The first time I heard this track it made me feel all the feelings.
It’s contemporary mixed with a disco-vibe. It sounded a little like a classic from the band CHIC. I was not surprised to read that the very talented Nile Rogers was one of the producers.
Pharell is also a producer on the song. What a summer he’s having. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” (with a Marvin Gaye sample) is also a monster summer hit.
I’ve just arrived in Salina and have heard this song all over the island. When I hear it in the future it will always remind me of Summer 2013 on a beautiful Italian island.
Here is the male model version from the CFDA’s. Unfortunately, it’s not a walk off. I would like to see a gentleman wear an outfit from Thom Browne’s Amish/Hasidic collection off the runway, including the hat.
Someone did a ’70s Soul Train line mash up. The dude at 0:31 is too cool for school. Love it. The fashion is amazing. Some of these dresses you could wear now.
If this doesn’t make you move, call your doctor, you might be dead.
Buon weekend a tutti!
