WOW. We started asking you for song suggestions that could possibly be a Smash Hit Song of the Summer about a month ago, and what we got was an avalanche of really great music. Honestly, this year has seen the largest number of listener submissions we've ever received. Furthermore, the songs were all so great that it made the process of narrowing the selection down to a final four exceptionally difficult. Now, after much hand wringing, heated discussion, and having to play The Allman Brother's Whipping Post AT LEAST four times, we have arrived at the final selections.
THE 2016 SMASH HIT SONG
OF THE SUMMER CONTENDERS!
SHSOTS CONTENDER 1: THE MONKEES - YOU BRING THE SUMMER
SHSOTS CONTENDER 2: TOUGH AGE - 50 GIRLS 50
SHSOTS CONTENDER 3: FRANK SINATRA - EVERYBODY'S TWISTIN'
SHSOTS CONTENDER 4: BABY JESUS - YOU MAKE ME FRY

One vote per listener, one song per listener. Just like a real live election, you cannot place multiple votes! Another thing the SHSOTS campaign has in common with real elections is that there might not be a single candidate you want to vote for, which is fine. It's just for fun. You need to vote if you want your favorite song to win, though, so please do so!
VOTE FOR YOUR SONG TODAY! The voting ends at 8:45 AM on Friday, May 27th. At that point we'll tally up the hash marks and declare the song that the listeners have chosen to be their 2016 Smash Hit Song of the Summer!
Thanks for playing!
