We Have to Do Something About This Summer Jam Thing

Posted By on Wed, Aug 3, 2011 at 2:30 PM

Last time we checked in on VH1's analytical approach the determining the song of the summer, Adele was on top with "Rolling in the Deep". While that song barely qualifies as being fun enough to be a summer jam, it's only gone way downhill from then, with Katy Perry's tribute to black-out-drinking/difficult-conversations-with-my-kids-when-it-comes-on-the-radio, "TGIF" taking over as number one. Listen, people: we can't let this song define us in 2011. We just can't, especially when the best song of the summer is out there and only in 12th place.

Unfortunately, Nicki Minaj is screwed in one of VH1's categories, their own countdown which is largely a rap-free zone, but there are still points to be gained in last.fm listens and iTunes downloads. I don't really understand the last.fm thing, but I chipped in tonight by downloading the single again from iTunes. The joke has gone on long enough with Katy Perry (wait, her pop career isn't an elaborate joke? Seriously?), it's time to get down to summer jam business.
