Song of the Summer Nominees (Full List)

Song of the Summer Nominees (Full List)

Well, gang, the nominating process is over, and now it's time to start voting for the official TBTL Song of the Summer!

Click here to listen to the selections and cast your vote.

You can listen to the top 16 nominees on Spotify or SoundCloud. (Note: Not all tracks are available on both services.)

Many of you have asked for a full list of nominees, clearly not realizing how many songs by Hanson, Gerry Rafferty and the Fresh Prince would be included in this year's picks. But, for those of us who are true completists, every entry is listed below.

Be warned: I have not screened 100% of all of these videos. If any of these links are broken, inappropriate or otherwise troublesome, please email me.
