Bananarama – Cruel Summer

“Cruel Summer” is a song by the English girl group Bananarama. The song was a top-ten hit on the UK Singles Chart in 1983, and the Billboard Hot 100 in 1984.
Bananarama singer Sara Dallin said the song “played on the darker side (of summer songs): it looked at the oppressive heat, the misery of wanting to be with someone as the summer ticked by. We’ve all been there!” It was ranked number 44 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the ’80s. Billboard named the song #13 on their list of 100 Greatest Girl Group Songs of All Time.
