What is 2013's Hot Summer Jam? You know, the super-popular song that you hear everywhere; at parties, clubs, mix tapes, coming from rolled down car windows, in totally unrelated commercials and movie trailers six months from now, etc. What is the "Call Me Maybe," the "Crazy," the "Crazy in Love" of 2013?

My guess so far is "Get Lucky," but is it mainstream enough? I think it has already established itself as the Hipster Summer Anthem (sometimes the two do converge, like with "Paper Planes") but is it "hot" enough to be be the Hot Summer Jam?

El-P "cancer for the cure" is an absolutely amazing album and was worth every penny I spent pre-ordering it last year. Its a huge suggestion from me for anyone to listen to.

Yeah, I reckon it's Get Lucky. It's an awesome song though, so I'm all for it.
Elbow's on the doors lads! BLAST THAT TUNE OUT!

Pop and Rock; one's a joke, the other is music. I love jokes and I love music.

But I'm afraid I can't help you here, having just heard this "call me maybe" song recently and assuming it was brand new. So I'm just going to echo Matt and say BLAST THAT SHIT.

Is this for some DJ gig you're doing? Or are you making a mix CD for somebody?

I don't even think Get Lucky is the best song on Random Access Memories. The biggest though.

Get Lucky isn't that good. I wanted older Daft Punk or even Tron Daft Punk Sad

Blurred Lines is getting a lot of play right now.

Thanks Urbz!

If I had to say one song, then yeah probably Get Lucky, even though it hasn't been nearly as massive as what I think you're talking about.

You must not have listened to the entire album because it's really good.



This is my personal choice so far, it will get big in time I'm guessing.

Thanks for the reminder! I've enjoyed these in years past.

Nope, I was just curious. I haven't been listening to much new music and started wondering.

This track reminded me of the other Hot Summer Jam/Hipster Summer Anthem crossover hit from 2011: "Pumped Up Kicks"

Actually, it reminds me of "I Would Do Anything for You". Both are from Foster the People, though. You were on the right track.

Now excuse me while I listen to Pumped Up Kicks on repeat for the rest of the day.

No. If I did, I'd have mentioned the entire album. I just heard Get Lucky on the radio and thought wtf...This is Daft Punk?! Dem homie.

I'm glad I don't care about these songs. Does Gangnam Style counts? Has somebody already mention that?
EDIT: Oops, that's 2012.

Get Lucky was hot before the summer. Now I'd say it's the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis song even though this song is currently winning the title on one radio station poll... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTbr77atD3M
