List Rules Tracks you had on heavy rotation all summer long - fun, uptempo songs that go with the season. Should be new songs that came out in 2015.

Many artists record their best material for release in the summer. Hundreds of songs claim to be summer anthems, but now it's up to you to pick the 2015 song of the summer.   

What 2015 summer songs did you have on heavy rotation all summer long? Of those, which was the best? Was it one of Taylor Swift's? Maroon 5's? The Weeknd's? So many artists knocked it out of the park for summer 2015, but which were the top summer songs of 2015?

Many critics are hailing "Cheerleader" by OMI as the number one 2015 summer anthem. This certainly was a feel good story, as the track sat unknown for almost three years before receiving heavy rotation during the summer season. However, if everyone just agreed with the critics all the time, then rankings like ours would never be up for debate. Are the critics right or did a seasoned veteran like Demi Lovato put OMI in his place? 
 
Summers come and summers go, but soundtracks last a lifetime. Even 16 years later, the 1999 summer anthem "Every Morning" by Sugar Ray can still be heard through speakers across the world. These top summer songs 2015 will undoubtedly stick around for a long time.
