10 Depressing Summer Songs
Mention summer, and some folks think fondly of suntans, Slurpees, surf and sand. Others see June 21 approach and shudder at the thought of sunburns, sweat-stained shirts, swollen fingers and TV reruns. When it comes to music, the former group has plenty of feelgood summer songs to pick from, but what about the hot-weather haters? We’ve teamed up with our grumpy pals at Ultimate Classic Rock to create this list of Depressing Summer Songs — tunes that may sound peppy but reveal some of the bad things that can happen when earth’s elliptical orbit and axial tilt lead to warmer temperatures and longer days. Enjoy!
