That feeling of freedom that hit you as you rode out to the beach on a sunny day, crammed in a car with friends, windows open, radio blasting, is somehow encased inside these tunes, even if you're listening to them from your desk all these years later. Although this summer's anthem can't officially be determined yet, we took a look back at Billboard's top ranked songs of summer over the past 15 years, along with the three chart-topping contenders so far this season. Feel free to sing along at your own risk, but be warned-- your boss may not appreciate your rendition of "Genie in a Bottle" quite the way your pals did in high school. 1999 Photo Credit: RCA 1.
