Songs of the Summer, 1940-2010. Some great stuff here, obviously, but not a lot of overlap with what my own list would look like. The defining criteria for a Personal Hit Single of the Summer is whether, when it came on the car radio you either turned it up (if you were riding shotgun) or yelled, "Turn that up!" (if you were driving, or in the back). It goes without saying that you'd be in the car with someone else, probably on the way to the beach. So, for me, 1979: Hot Stuff by Donna Summer, and maybe 2008: I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry qualify. (My actual 2008 was "Sequestered in Memphis") 1965: Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones doesn't work because there is no way I'd have been in a car with anyone who'd have turned it up when I was 8. 1970: American Woman by The Guess Who? Maybe. It is a song I associate with 8th Grade, and summer camp. We all thought the grunt in the beginning was hilarious.
