Fun Radio - Fun Summer Dance 2018
To celebrate the official start of summer, we've brought back our Songs Of The Summer mix. Though it may be too soon to definitively name 2018's Song of the Summer, we've added to the mix a few songs that are well-positioned to take the crown this year. Give those new earworms a spin alongside summertime hits from the past five decades via our Spotify playlist.
The songs that win the summer season spread so fast and far because they work. They're fun to sing. The hooks are catchy. They speak to something larger than our tastes, fulfilling a collective need for music that's as danceable as it is escapist as it is a shared experience. This happens every year. We here at NPR Music wondered what we might discover when we put all the Songs of the Summers of the past 50 years or so in one place. What story would they tell us?
Billboard has compiled lists of the Top 10 charting Songs of the Summer since 1985, so figuring those was easy. For the summers of 1962 through 1984, we looked through the June-August Billboard charts, taking note of which songs were on the charts the longest, in any position, and which had staying power at No. 1. It wasn't a perfect science, but we made our best educated decisions about which songs once ruled the radio and the cash registers.
During high school summer breaks, Roberts traveled to California to study modern dance. After high school, at 19 years old, she moved permanently to Los Angeles.

In the United Kingdom, "Youngblood" peaked at number four on the UK Singles Chart, spending over six months on the chart and becoming their third highest-charting single in Britain behind "She Looks So Perfect" and "Don't Stop", which peaked at number one and number two on the UK Singles Chart in March 2014 and June 2014 respectively. The single was certified triple platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. The single did well in Britain during the summer months, from 1 June to 30 August, and ranked seventh on the Official Charts Company's Top 40 Biggest Song of the Summer 2018, while the music video ranked ninth place on The Official Top 40 songs most streamed on video of 2018 so far. "Youngblood" eventually became the country's 28th-highest-selling single of 2018.

On 22 June 2018, they performed it on The Today Show's Summer Concert Series, and on 28 November 2018 at the 32nd Annual ARIA Awards.

Just Dance is a series of rhythm games developed by Ubisoft, heavily featuring licensed music that the player can perform dance routines to. Due to the series generally targeting an E to E10+ rating (and PEGI 3, 7, or even 12), songs in every incarnation of the series have been censored for language, sexual references, alcohol/drug references, etc. (sometimes inconsistently) to receive the desired ESRB rating and keep things appropriate for younger players. Censored words or phrases are replaced with an ellipsis (...) or another word or phrase. Most frequently, the radio edits of songs are used.
