    23 Songs That Are This Year's Gay Songs Of Summer

    Alternate title: The Best Songs Of Summer.

    The other morning I woke up to a frantic text from a friend.

    My phone lol

    Startled and confused, that text got me thinking, we already know what the straight song of summer is...

    Some str8 person's Spotify

    ...but what about the song of the summer for homosexuals?

    This, fellow homos, is for you:

    1. "Cut To The Feeling" by Carly Rae Jepsen

    I would literally be excommunicated from the gay colony like some problematic (but wrongly accused) witch in the 1700s if I didn't include this song on this list.

    2. "New Rules" by Dua Lipa

    Gay people have really gone above and beyond for Dua hopefully that will translate into some damn chart success.

    3. "Power" by Little mix

    There are drag queens in the video and I'm not just talking about Little Mix.

    4. "Crying In The Club" by Camila Cabella

    It's basically a Sia song featuring Christina Aguilera. That gets a gay stamp of approval by me.

    5. "Happy Birthday (Live from Singapore)" by Britney Spears

    View this video on YouTube

    Honestly a game changer.

    6. Lorde's "Melodrama" album

    Lava Records

    If I have to hear another gay at happy hour say they love the new Lorde album I swear I'm gonna snap...though I do kinda love the new Lorde album too.

    7. "Praying" by Kesha

    Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.

    8. "Malibu (Gigamesh Remix)" by Miley Cyrus

    What gay summer list would be complete with at least one gay-leaning remix?

    9. "Want You Back" by Haim

    For my Haimsbian friends.

    10. "Chantaje" by Shakira feat. Maluma

    This video almost turned me straight but Maluma is in it so I instantly just became gay & horny again.

    11. "Mama Say" by Betty Who

    This song is a tribute to Britney Spears. I'm prolapsing.

    12. "Bad Liar" by Selena Gomez


    13. "Swish Swish" by Katy Perry feat. Nicki Minaj

    Katy Perry and gay pandering aside...this bops.

    14. "Wearing Nothing" by Dagny

    A song ahead of its time, something gay people are usually too (think: Bionic.)

    15. "Say My Name" by Tove Stryke

    Another reason to love gay pop music friendly country, Sweden.

    16. "The Cure" by Lady Gaga


    Gaga finally gave the gays what they wanted (pop music).

    17. "Down" by Fifth Harmony

    "Work From Home" is better but whatever I'm fine with this. Invented hotels etc.

    18. "There For You" by Martin Garrix feat. Troye Sivan

    I just have a crush on Troye Sivan so sue me.

    19. "Greedy" by Ariana Grande but really by Valentina but actually not because she didn't know the words

    *Infinite gay gasp*

    20. "Company" by Tinashe

    Yes, this video came out in January, but I don't fucking care!!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN, GAY PEOPLE.

    21. "Wild Thoughts" by DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna

    Literally just for: "see me nakey, nakey, naked." But also because Rihanna.

    22. "Paradinha" by Anitta

    Because Brazil.

    23. "Cool For The Summer" by Demi Lovato

    Gay song of the summer three years running. End of story and goodbye.
