I always feel as though some music is constantly linked to certain years in my head. 'Ho Hey' by The Lumineers is a 2013 song, 'English Kids In America' by Lower Than Atlantis will always remind me of 2014, just like 'Nerve' by Don Broco takes me straight back to summer 2015 every single time.
These ten songs are always going to bring me right back to the summer of 2016.
10) 'You're So Cheap' by Dead!
Yes, 'Something More Original' was released more recently, but 'You're So Cheap' is so much better. Having heard it at Slam Dunk, Download and Reading, it's the most pervasive of the songs I've chosen.
9) 'Get Over It' by Lower Than Atlantis
8) 'You & Me' by The Hunna
A quintessential summer song. I feel sun in my bones when I hear this.
7) 'Secrets' by State Champs
"YOU CAUGHT ME IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME, SO I'LL JUST DIVE RIGHT IN!"
Tell me that opening line isn't catchy as shit. You'll be lying. Yes, this song was released last summer, but after seeing them with Sleeping With Sirens and (briefly) at Reading festival, this is always going to remind me of 2016.
6) 'Let Go' by This Wild Life ft. Maya Tuttle
I really enjoy the entirety of This Wild Life's new album, but I think this song stands out the most for me (followed extremely closely by 'Fade', which is devastatingly honest). This is the only new release that I've bothered to listen to in its entirety - it's been one of my most anticipated albums of 2016 since it was released.
5) 'Night People' by You Me At Six
Returning with the rockiest song they've released since 2011, I was grateful that the five lads from Surrey decided to go back to their roots. If they'd stuck to the indie sound they experimented with on 2014's 'Cavalier Youth', I would have been very disappointed.
4) 'Everybody' by Don Broco
3) 'Closer' by The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey
With a whopping 250 million views on Youtube - and increasing rapidly! - 'Closer' is the song of the summer. The combination of Halsey and The Chainsmokers is magic, and I can't wait for the official video to be released: it's just going to make it even more popular.
2) 'Serotonia' by Highly Suspect
1) 'Stupid For You' by Waterparks
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! What have been your favourite songs this summer?
