What Song Will Define Summer 2004?

"Soca," a musical concoction of soul and calypso native to the Caribbean was last heard in the early 80s party hit, "Hot, Hot, Hot." Last summer, Sean Paul re-introduced the sounds of dancehall reggae to the mainstream and it looks like they've paved the way for soca. A melang é of soca rhythms with a dancehall reggae vibe, "Turn Me On" is the ultimate "boy-meets-girl at the party" song that is fast becoming a staple at the clubs everywhere. Smooth vocals by Kevyn Lyttle sprinkled with heavy R&B and sexy dancehall beats make this the perfect summer hook-up track of 04. The Corrs: "Summer Sunshine"

Impeccable, upbeat and drenched with smooth light vocals about the obvious by the Irish family quartet who count Bono as a fan. This could be the song that finally establishes the best-selling Irish band in the US. "Summer Sunshine" is already receiving the all-important Top 40 radio airplay and the band's upcoming US tour is selling out fast. Expect "Summer Sunshine" to be picked up by at least one television network and/or advertiser for a no-brainer summer campaign. Keep in mind that the song's shelf life expires on September 22nd — the 1st day of Autumn.
