More summer songs

A few weeks ago, I linked to a quiz about your favorite songs of 2013 and 2014. Today, here’s a list of the “20 Biggest Songs of the Summer: The 2000s”. How many do you recognize? Which ones would you like to try on the Lyrics Training site?

The Rolling Stone article also has similar lists for previous decades and a list of the best summer songs ever.

I was looking around for a similar list for J-pop songs and found these videos:  Medleys of ’00-’06 and ’07-’12 hits. They’re not limited to summer hits, but show a brief excerpt of each week’s top song. How many of those do you remember? And what can you say about the similarities and differences between the US and J-pop charts and trends?
