Prepare for a musical deep dive over a decade!

So, first up ‘Girls Go Wild’ by  LP is what Muireann O'Connell predicts will be the big summer jam of 2019.

It is class. And it inspired this post.

We have gone elbow deep into the biggest songs of the last ten years. Criteria included;

Release date, (had to be before summer or in summer obvs)

Chart position/Sales.

And if it was any bleedin' good!! Would it be wind down the window elbow out music?

Here's The Top Ten Summer Tunes of The last 10 Years according to The Muireann O'Connell show:

 

2019 ‘Girls Go Wild’ by  LP

This is a crystal ball choice. Our pick for 2019.

 

2018 -   ‘One Kiss’ -  Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa

Huge. Huger. Biggest. Massive. Humongous. *Insert adjective* Clear winner for 2018.

 

2017 - Despacito (Remix )- Luis Fonsi/Daddy Yankee/Bieber

16 weeks at the number one spot in Ireland alone. 6,269,336,977 views on YouTube. Even looking at that number on screen is mind boggling.

Even your Granny was dancing to this, that is a cast iron guarantee of success.

2016 -"This Is What You Came For" - Calvin Harris & Rihanna

Number 1 all over the shop including Ireland. The biggest collab of the year. Honourable mention goes to 'Cheap Thrill' by SIA.

 

2015 – ‘Cheerleader’ by Omi

Love It/Hate It. This was HUGE.

 

2014 - Milky Chance - Stolen Dance

Dodgy name for a band. Great tune. Catchy as foook and number one all over Europe. We haven't heard from these German lads since but the retirement is paid for with this super hit.

 

2013 - 'Get Lucky' - Pharrell, Daft Punk & Nile Rodgers.

Honourable mention to 'Blurred Lines' by Pharrell and the Tick lad (although in retrospect you don't hear that much now cos ye know erm dodgy message etc.) and the underrated and brilliant "La la la" by Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith

 

 

2012 - "Euphoria" by Loreen

The Eurovision winner from Sweden gave birth to this addictive dance belter!

2011 - 'Party Rock Anthem' - LMFAO ft. Lauren Bennett, GoonRock

In 2011 EVERYONE WAS SHUFFLING. Number one in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

 

2010 - ‘Stereo Love’ by Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina

Dive in and gorge yourself on some dance nostalgia from Romania!

 

2009 –   ‘I Gotta Feeling’ - Black Eyed Peas

In Ireland, the song peaked at number one and held that position for 12 non-consecutive weeks!
