Best Summer Songs of All Time

"Cruel Summer," Bananarama


Siobhan Fahey, Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward of Bananarama
Mike Prior/Redferns
10/50

Bananarama wanted to write a song that keyed into the "darker side" of summer. Defined by a plinking earworm hook and drum-pad beats, this is essentially the British synth-pop answer song to Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City," as if to say, "hey, we have humid summers, too, wot?" And yet, they chose to shoot the video in New York.
