Summer Means Fun

The inevitable Summer Song Poll from the Guardian:

My own fave would be Sly and the Family Stone's "Hot Fun in the Summertime," which I didn't hear till I was in my mid-20s and spent several idyllic vacations with friends on Edisto, one of the barrier islands off the South Carolina coast. That song summed up everything for me: sex, languor, melancholy, sun. Pure bliss.

What about you?
