Every summer, the same thing: A handful of songs reach fever pitch, anointed by radio stations and television channels as the songs of the season.

So what are the Songs of Summer 2009? View our video gallery of likely candidates, from rap to indie rock. (And no, we did not include Lady Gaga, though “Poker Face” is still topping the charts—she’s so ubiquitous now, she’s beyond even competing for saturation.) And if you find a song in the gallery for your next party mix—you’re welcome.
