Shazam Shazam Predicts This Summers 10 Most Popular Songs

The ability to instantaneously access information has never been more easy than it is in today’s technologically-advanced environment. The advent of web-based services like Google, or even Evernote for example, have all but eliminated the need from human memory use. Can’t recall all four names of the Golden Girls? Google that shit. Have a lunch appointment this afternoon that you don’t want to organically have to remember? Plug it into your online calendar, set a reminder and mentally retardate. Who remembers phone numbers anymore? No one. Everything is online and at our fingertips every waking moment of every single day.

Perhaps it’s the mobilization of technology that’s damned us? We all know there’s an app for everything. Now there’s even one that’s trying to predict popular music themes for the Summer of 2012. Shazam is nothing new. Everyone with a smart phone has it. Everyone is “tagging”, and thanks to that extensive database of musical queries, the UK-based company has come up with a list of what they think will be this summer’s 10 most popular songs. Some are no-brainers, but others are no-namers. At least to most in the States. No Fun., no Carly Rae Jepson, but Gusttavo Lima did you say? Yeah, he’s in there. Tech site Mashable Entertainment spoke with Shazam’s director of music, Will Mills, about his company’s findings. Have a look through the pages to see if any of your faves made the list.
