What's Your Summer Song?

Junior Journalist, get out your headphones! This TFK Press Club mission is all about music.

Mission 12: What's Your Summer Song?

Each year, music journalists try to predict what the song of the summer will be.

Junior Journalists, we want to know: What's your summer song? If you could pick the song of the summer, what would it be, and why? Is it a song that you like, or one that you know is popular? A little reporting can go a long way. Check out the music charts. Ask your friends and family for their favorites. And listen for the music that seems to be playing wherever you go.
