July 5, 2018

Let's be honest, the summer is the best season of the year. The warm weather, the cool drinks, the beach, the vacations. It's the one time of the year where work and responsibility take a hike.

Because the summer is also a very busy time for music given the concert season, we asked out listeners what they thought embodied the "ultimate summer song."
