WBZ WaterCooler: Song Of The Summer

By Drew Moholland, WBZ NewsRadio 1030

BOSTON (CBS) –  It’s becoming a bit of a tradition for us here at the WBZ WaterCooler.

When the kids go back to school we pick a song of the summer and find some locals to sing it, usually a team or some kind of group.

It’s a ‘not so scientific’ pick, but last year we think we got it right when the BC Women’s Volleyball team sang Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’.

We don’t pull any numbers and there aren’t any top 100 charts used, it’s just more of a feel thing. It’s the song that we felt we heard most often at the beach, lake, cookout, wedding etc.

So here we are, and we went with “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers.

Okay, okay, you caught us.  This song was technically released last summer, but in our expert opinion, it really became a monster hit later.

For those of you screaming that this should be “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke or “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk, we would like you to know that they were considered, a consolation prize if you will.

But our decision stands.

This year’s song of the summer is “Ho Hey” by the Lumineers, and here it is, performed by a group of novice rowers, at Charles River Community Rowing.
