Default What is Your Favourite Summer Song

Well Summer is around the corner and I was wondering what song means summer to you. Just pick one song (I know there are dozens of songs about summer, but just pick one) that when you hear it you think Summer; and if you can find a video or audio of the song on the internet, then that will fit in with the theme of this forum "On The Web"...

My pick for Summer Song Of All Time is:

The Drifters 'Under the Boardwalk'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjD0Ne3CuaY

.... What is your pick????

The first two I think of -
The Hooters "And We Danced"

and Bryan Adams "Summer of '69"

Without a doubt, it's Don Henley's Boys of Summer.

Mole, that's one of mine also.

My favourite summer song: Coconut Grove by Lovin' Spoonful.

See you in September... preferably the version by The Happenings.

Why? The heat'n'humidity (Yechh! ) of most Southern Ontario Summers means hibernating until the nice weather returns, usually shortly after Labour Day!

Max Webster "A Million Vacations"

I grew up in a small town (approx pop 2000) and it's true you can only drive down main street so many times.

The Rolling Stones do an excellent cover of Under The Boardwalk, too.

ugh "last kiss" would be my vote if the topic was most depressing song of all time. still a great song. just so depressing!

lets add something for modern to the list.

Coldplay - Paradise

and

Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song
