Have you got mad love for the latest songs out this summer, or does it feel more like bad blood? We’re on the prowl for this summer’s biggest hit, that song that seems to effortlessly capture warm breezes, salty lips, frosty beverages, and the freedom to stay up late and sleep in. And we need your help. (Vote for your favorite song in our poll below!)

There have been some early chart busters like Walk the Moon‘s unstoppable hit from last fall, “Shut Up and Dance”; Maroon 5‘s “Sugar”; and Taylor Swift‘s throat-punching anthem, “Bad Blood.”

Speaking of bad blood, have you noticed all the “girl fighting” in pop land lately? Madge put on a grill and kicked it with Nicki Minaj for “Bitch, I’m Madonna“; Britney and Iggy Azalea are allegedly feuding over the bubble-gum “Pretty Girls”; and Rihanna‘s snarling her way through “Bitch Betta Have My Money.”

But we want to know: Who’s worthy of stealing the “Blurred Lines” or “Call Me Maybe” crowns of previous summers? As of July, Fifth Harmony‘s “Worth It” is currently crushing YouTube with 83 million views. Justin Bieber is batting his baby browns with Skrillex and Diplo in “Where Are U Now” and Fetty Wap is burning up the EDM scene with “Trap Queen” and “My Way” featuring Drake.

On the country side, Sam Hunt‘s “House Party” is still a tailgate fave and Brad Paisley’s “Crushing It” is a weekend must-play.

But The Weeknd is coming up strong with the super-catchy “Can’t Feel My Face.”

We’ve compiled our MyMusicCloud playlist of the Best Summer Songs Here. Now’s your chance to vote for the Best and Worst Summer Songs in our polls below.

When you’re out by the pool, manning the barbecue, prepping the keg, or tubin’ down a lazy river this summer, don’t forget your favorite feel-good songs. With music app MyMusicCloud, you can create the perfect summer playlist and listen to it on your smartphone or tablet wherever you go — even if there’s no wifi for miles. Will it ever be too far away? No way, no!

As you can see, our playlist starts with the loose, reggae sounds of Magic!, pumps up with Pitbull, Fetty Wap and Flo Rida, and cools down with  Little Big Town‘s “Pontoon,” Sam Hunt‘s  “House Party,” and Taylor Swift‘s “Style.”

Is there a certain someone you’ve been taking for granted lately? Maybe he’s the guy who gently but insistently bugs you to check your car’s motor oil level.  Or makes you grilled cheese sandwiches when you’re sick. Or taught your kids how to hold a baseball bat.

We’re talking about dads, of course. Cool or square, thin or pot-bellied, wisecracking or stoic, beer-chugging or bottled-water loving, dads rarely get the thanks they deserve. Since Sunday is Father’s Day, we dug up the 10 coolest, funniest, and most heart-tugging songs about the “Old Man” we could think of. Download them to your MyMusicCloud  library and make a custom Father’s Day playlist for his tablet, PC, or mobile phone, or search our music store (more than 11 million songs) to select your own choices.

Among our picks are hits from Eric Clapton, rockers Black Stone Cherry, Latin hip hop group Bang Data, Will Smith, Luther Vandross, Kenny Chesney, and a host of country artists. If you were ever a teenage girl, you’ll relate to “Cleaning This Gun,” Rodney Atkins’ humorous riff about an overprotective dad and his daughter.  In it, Rodney shares the speech he uses to scare his daughter’s amorous dates: “I’ll see when you get back, probably be up all night, still cleaning this gun.”

Late R&B superstar Luther Vandross yearns to see his sire once more in “Dance with My Father,” and so does Paul Carrack of Mike & the Mechanics in the ‘80s tearjerker “The Living Years.” While Kenny Chesney laments the day his daughter heads off to California in “There Goes My Life.”

On a happier note, Will Smith recorded “Just the Two of Us” for his son Trey, who also costars in the music video with comic Damon Wayans, Magic Johnson and more stars and their kids.

Enjoy these top 10 Songs About Dads list, share them on Facebook, and sync them across your friends’ devices with our free store-and-play music app. Happy Father’s Day from the staff at MyMusicCloud.

How can you not be inspired by that Cleveland Cavaliers’ intro song “Carmina Burana”? It’s appropriately epic as the Cavs leave blood, sweat, and tears on the basketball courts in Cleveland and Oakland this month. Playing rivals the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals, LeBron James‘ performance has become so heroic that even die-hard LeBron haters are softening towards King James.

So how do these basketball warriors (musically) rise to their ever-dunking best?

“I know where I want to be before each game, and the music is how I get there,” LeBron tells ESPN magazine. “I allow myself to feel the music and get lost in my preparation.”

Here’s LeBron James’ actual pregame pump-up playlist (circa 2013):

“Trap Back Jumpin” by T.I.

“Get Right” by Young Jeezy

“I’m Different” by 2 Chainz

“Diamonds” (Remix) by Rihanna

“Remember You” by Wiz Khalifa (featuring The Weeknd)

“Clique” by Jay-Z, Big Sean, Kanye West

“Gone by Wiz Khalifa” (featuring Juicy J)

“Conflicted” by Jerreau

“Long Live ASAP” by A$AP Rocky

“Still D.R.E.” by Dr. Dre.

But the Warriors are also in superhero mode. Here’s what they’re listening to, according to Billboard.com.

Player: Draymond Green
“Drinks on Us” – The Weeknd
“Flicka Da Wrist” – Chedda da Connect
“10 Bands” – Drake

Player: Justin Holiday
“Know Yourself” – Drake
“10 Bands” – Drake
“I’m Turnt” – Lecrae

Player: Harrison Barnes
“King Kunta” – Kendrick Lamar
“Fire Squad” – J. Cole
“G.O.M.D.” – J. Cole

And, of course, there’s the Drake song, Blessings, that is the favorite of Stephen Curry‘s daughter.

We can’t promise these jams will help your game, but with a playlist like this, at least you’ll feel like you’re flying with the basketball gods.

concert crowd, dancing, edm

There’s nothing like seeing your favorite bands rage live and in glorious person. But concert and music festival venues? They need some serious re-booting. First, you lose your friends in the massive stadium crowds. Then you can’t find a bathroom that hasn’t been trashed by the Insane Clown Posse. And where was that beer cart with the super-short lines again?

At last, you can stop experiencing concerts like a cave troll. You and your phone are smarter than that. Here are 5 awesome concert apps to try that will track your friends and important venue landmarks, plus help you shoot and share some awesome videos.

1) Bandsintown. First, you need to know who’s playing, where, and when. Bandsintown tracks your favorite musicians and sends you concert alerts when they’re playing nearby, creates a “concert cloud’ of bands playing locally, suggests recommendations based on your favorites, and connects you to hundreds of sites to buy tickets from so you can shop the lowest ticket price. On iTunes and Google Play. Free.

2) Z Location. Once you know your venue, instantly flag and name the locations of your parking spot, those clean bathrooms, short vendor lines, or uncrowded exit doors on this scarily fast mapping app. Share these must-have spots with your friends via text, email, Twitter, Facebook. On iTunes and Google Play. Free.

3) MyMusicCloud. Of course, we have to mention our own awesome store-and-play music app. Get pumped up for the show by creating a portable music playlist and taking it with you throughout the day — on your smartphone, tablet, computer, or Samsung smartwatch and Smart TV. Doesn’t matter if it’s an Apple, Android or Windows device, MyMusicCloud speaks all OS languages and you can listen without wifi too. On iTunes, Google Play, Windows, and Samsung TV app store. Free.

4) Glympse: Never text “Where R U?!?” again with this free app that tracks exactly where your friends are before, during and after a show. Create a group, add friends, and their movements and locations are shared and updated on maps in real time. Send group messages to keep everyone en pointe. On iTunes, Google Play, Windows Apps. Free.

5) Vyclone. Too far from the stage to get that really cool shot? No problem. Just log in to Vyclone and this app pulls videos, photos and sound from others at the same event and mashes them all together for some super cool videos. Appear ultra-popular as people from other groups are mixed into shots or add your own arty camera angles and closeups. On iTunes, Google Play, Windows App stores. Free.

These apps were live and usable as of June 2015 but, after that, YMMV. (Your mileage may vary.)

Isn’t it crazy how many music storage apps there are? Dropbox, iTunes, Google Drive.  Not to mention all those here-today-gone-tomorrow startup apps in Google Play. If you’ve been collecting music over the years like we have, you’ve probably saved songs in nearly every one of these.

Before you know it, you’ve forgotten which albums and mixes are where: Is Jay-Z in my  iTunes or Google account? What happened to my 2012 football tailgate mix? Where did my live Muse import go?

All those storage accounts require a lot of passwords, and hog precious room on your cellphone, tablet, and computer. Why not give your devices (and yourself) a break, and unite all your albums in 1 universal music app?

Listen to all your music from Dropbox, Google Drive, iTunes, Windows Media Player and more with the free MyMusicCloud app. Using iTunes? Simply create a MyMusicCloud account and our desktop Sync Agent imports your songs automatically.

Storing Music on Dropbox or Google Drive? Once you sign up, click the ACCOUNT > SETTINGS > IMPORT SETTINGS tabs and select “Connect Google Drive or Dropbox.” Enter your log-in credentials once and our automatic Sync Agent does the rest.

Now, you’re really free from storage tyranny. You can:

  • Take your music with you wherever you go on any cellphone, tablet, laptop or Samsung smartwatch.
  • Listen to music offline. No Wifi needed.
  • Create new playlists, or let our Smart Playlist feature make one for you.
  • Buy new songs from our music store for as little as 99 cents. Move them to another app if you want.
  • Store all your music for free. Also, listen to 250 songs free or pay $39.99 / year to listen to any song anytime.
  • More importantly, save storage space with just 1 app instead of many.
