It's coming, with some semblance of "normal" in the air.  Aside from surfer/beach tunes, what are some of your favorite summer themed tunes.

Here's a few

Springsteen - Girl's In Their Summer Clothes
Don Henley - The Boys Of Summer
Bananarama - Cruel Summer
Zeppelin - Dancing Days

Summertime Blues, Eddie Cochran
Summertime, Janis Joplin (my fav version, it's been done by zillions of artists)
Don't believe in riches, but you should see where I live.

A couple summer hits from my high school days:
Len- Steal My Sunshine
Smash Mouth- Walking on the Sun

There's any number of Chris Isaak songs i can think of but not sure if that counts as surfer/beach tunes.

You know the thread is calling for non beach songs?
