Each year, there’s always that one special song that defines the summer.

I mean, who DIDN’T roll down their car windows and rock out to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm]’s “California Gurls?”

It’s a little too early to tell what will be this season’s big hit, but all of us on the morning show crew chimed in with our favorites!

Did we pick a winner? There’s only one way to find out…

This morning, we racked our brains trying to come up with this year’s summer anthem.

Listen to what we came up with:

Carson Daly — “Pumped Up Kicks,” [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Foster The People[/lastfm]

You probably won’t be hearing this song anytime soon on AMP Radio, but it’s definitely worth a listen while you’re BBQing in the back yard!

Producer Angie — “Moves Like Jagger,” [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Maroon 5[/lastfm] featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm]

Okay, AMP Radio played the world premiere of this collaboration today and we’re already hooked!

The whistling makes us feel like we’re strolling down Santa Monica beach on a sunny day.

Add the hotness of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Levine[/lastfm] and top-notch vocals from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] and you have a hit!

Surfer Stephen — “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win,” [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beastie Boys[/lastfm] featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Santigold[/lastfm]

We know [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beastie Boys[/lastfm] best for their classics like “Fight For Your Right” and “Brass Monkey,” but year after year, they keep churning out infectious new hits.

Does this song feel like summer vacay to you too?

Marcus — “Give Me Everything,” [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ne-Yo[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nayer[/lastfm]

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] seems to be hitting all right notes lately.

For his latest jam, he’s teaming up with R&B heart throb [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ne-Yo[/lastfm] and if this doesn’t get you dancing at the clubs, then I declare you officially CRAZY!

Phone Ops Sarah & Christen — “I Wanna Go,” [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm]

We’re massive Britney fans at AMP Radio, so it comes as no surprise that we chose her latest hit as one of our picks.

The Staples Center completely erupted when Brit Brit busted out this number last night.

It’s the fist-pumping, dance-centric beat that keeps us coming back for more!
