No Doubt, ‘One More Summer’ – Depressing Summer Songs
Were we to make a list of super happy summer songs, we'd surely include something by No Doubt, but here, the generally sunny SoCal rockers set aside the sunscreen and let the clouds roll in. Singer Gwen Stefani sounds positively worn out as she tells her lover why he's wrong for her, and why she'll likely never leave him. "One more summer / One more weekend / I'm your lover / You're my weakness," she sings, later flipping those last two lines, underscoring the hopelessly tangled-up nature of this affair. Musically, the generic synth-pop backing matches Gwen's exhausted tone, though that's probably not what the band was going for.
