The Sounds of Summer: Your Pool Party Playlist 2010

LOVE_FESTIVAL_2009_RAIN_LAS_VEGAS60rb_t1000Listening to DJs spin poolside in Vegas is as much a partying rite of passage as, say, puking behind a palm tree. You’ll hear many of last summer’s songs everywhere, but Vegas DJs are sure to slip some new ones into the flow—just like that extra shot in your drink. We asked around to see which hits-and-mixes have potential to be this season’s inescapable “I Know You Want Me” or “I Gotta Feeling.”
