Best Summer Songs of All Time

"Boys of Summer," Don Henley


Don Henley
Pete Cronin/Redferns
19/50

Insistent and laidback like cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway, Henley's 1984 classic ponders his lost youth and innocence over an oddly urgent drum machine, overcast synths and Heartbreaker (and co-writer) Mike Campbell's guitar, which is spacey, menacing and lonely all at once. It's a summer anthem that gets darker the closer you look.
