Regardless of where you went this summer, or if you went anywhere at all, you heard Luis Fonsi's "Despacito." It was, and still is, absolutely everywhere. If there was a definitive song of the summer, that's probably it. But we're not putting together a list of the highest charting, best performing songs of the summer, we're more interested in listing the songs that helped define summer 2017 for Pigeons & Planes.
Some of these songs had huge presences, and others less so. Some come from established superstars and others from rising talents. One thing these songs do share in common, though, is that they helped this summer at least sound good, even as everything else in the world was falling apart.
