Summertime is for fun-time music, witht the windows rolled down and the stereo cranked up. In that grand tradition, Spotify has tabulated this summer's most-streamed songs and put them in playlist form, which you can listen to below.
The top spins aren't that surprising, but what is surprising is the durability of some of these songs. Gotye's omni-present "Somebody That I Used To Know" came out last December, yet it's still popular enough to nab the number 5 spot on Spotify's list. Fun.'s "We Are Young" gets top-billing, though it was released almost exactly a year ago (!). People just want to triumphantly declare their youthness in the summer, I guess. Here's the full track list, courtesy of NME:
