As another summer draws to an end, we mark the occasion with our 10 favourite hits with Summer in their title…


10. Joe Cocker – Summer In The City
Not only is this Joe Cocker hit a classic, it also ensures Kid Rock doesn’t make it onto our list, which is a victory in itself

9. Belinda Carlisle – Summer Rain
It is vitally important to have a couple of 80s entries on any music countdown, and no better woman than Belinda Carlisle to kick off our 80s finalists

8. DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince – Summertime
Will Smith is easily the greatest rap artist of all-time and anyone who says anything to the contrary is clearly just wrong

7. John Travolta & Olivia Newton John – Summer Nights
Don’t act like you don’t love it…

6. Calvin Harris – Summer
In 10 years time maybe no one will remember this one as it’s hardly a classic, but probably our favourite song of this summer, so Calvin Harris earns his spot on our list

5. Don Henley – The Boys of Summer
Another entry from the 80s, this time in the guise of former Eagles member Don Henley…

4. Mungo Jerry – In The Summertime
The sheer quality of facial hair in this video is almost as impressive as the song itself

3. The Corrs – Summer Sunshine
This song was a point of contention in our ranks, with some people pushing to get it to the #1 spot, while others argued that ranking it above Bryan Adams would go straight to Jim Corr’s head and further enhance his already massive ego… Whopper tune though…

2. Bryan Adams – Summer of ’69
You knew it was coming as we’d probably be shot if it didn’t make the list. Possibly a tad overplayed, but you’ll sing along regardless whenever it comes on

1. Dodgy – Staying Out For The Summer
Even though it’s probably the least well known song on our list, we gladly give Dodgy our top spot – a whale of a song, with an absolutely mental video to boot…
