I am a very big radio listener. For years, before I moved to college, I would listen to the radio every day for hours while I hung around the house or worked out or was in the car, and it was always some sort of small thrill waiting to see what they would play next (unfortunately, it was usually something like the Yin Yang Twins or Lil Crunk, a genre I abhor save for that Flo Rida song).
One of my favorite parts of radio (strange as I will sound) is trying to guess what the Summer Song of that year would be. One year, it was easily Golddigger by Kanye West. Before that, it was We Belong Together by Mariah Carey, and another year it was Don’t Cha by PCD (obviously, they don’t always reflect what should have been). If the summer song is good, you’ll get to hear it 5 or so times an hour. If it is abysmally terribly awful, then that number seems to be automatically bumped up to 10 or 20 times an hour.
I am not quite sure since it’s a new track, but I am leaning to think that the new one from Boys Like Girls could become the Summer Song of 2008.
The song is called Thunder and I saw the lyrics on a Twilighter’s myspace a month before the record label even sent it to me. When people get the song before radio people get it, then something’s up. Give it a listen and see if you’re getting the same summer feelings.
