Top 5 Summer Holiday 80's Songs

If you’re on the lookout for a summer holiday 80’s song, look no further. “Summertime” is a short song with just a few verses and an instrumental interlude. The lyrics tell the story of hot dogs, blankets, and the sun beating down on a tar-papered roof.

Hot Girl Summer

“Summer Girls” by Sam Hunt is an ode to curvy summer girls, with lyrics that reference Cherry Coke, the Beastie Boys, and Shakespeare’s sonnets. It’s the perfect song for a dockside summer jam. Whether you’re on vacation or celebrating the end of the school year, this 80’s holiday classic will have you feeling carefree.

While it’s not entirely clear when the phrase “hot girl summer” came into common usage, it was certainly already in the public lexicon before the song came out. It stemmed from Megan Thee Stallion’s “Cash Shit” song, which quickly became a viral hit in July. After a couple of weeks, Hot Girl Summer was released as a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. It’s a hedonistic ode to summer pool parties, with universal appeal.

Despite its age, the song is still a timeless classic. Adam Adams would have been nine in 1969 when the song first hit the charts. The song also won the Grammy for Record of the Year in 1988 and resurfaced a few years later as a cover by The Ataris.

Diamond in the back

One of the best songs about the summer holiday was Diamond in the back, by Little Miss Dynamite. This song, from the band’s debut EP in 1998, has an almost gangster-like sound, but with a warm holiday spirit. The song features the angelically-voiced Stuart Murdoch.

Sunroof top

When it comes to 80’s summer holiday songs, “Sunroof” is up there at the top. With its easy-listening rhythm and groovy electric guitar licks, this tune is the perfect soundtrack for car rides, beach days, and even walks on the beach.

Otis Redding’s “Lazy Day” was recorded just a few days before he died in a plane crash, but the song is all about enjoying a lazy summer day. Its lapping waves and Redding’s whistling are the perfect backdrop to the summer holiday. The sonic tranquility of this song makes it an all-time favorite.


What is a summer holiday without a catchy novelty 80’s song? Almost as much a part of the season as sunblock and mosquito bites, these songs can’t be shaken by September. And yet, even if you can’t remember the lyrics to them, you can play them over to relive your summer vacation.

Will Smith

This new song from Will Smith is a mash-up of many 80’s classics. The song is about a summer holiday and features rapping by Will Smith over a catchy Jeff beat. The lyrics are reminiscent of the summer months, as they discuss fun activities like playing multiple sports, relaxing in the sun, and washing cars. The song has gained immense popularity over the past decade, and multiple reports say it has been downloaded over 5.5 million times.

Will Smith became a superstar as a rapper during the late 1980s, and soon moved into the film industry. He also starred in the TV series ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’, which ran for six seasons on NBC and has been continuously syndicated since 1990. After his success on television, he moved into film, starring in a number of blockbusters. His career has led to his being named a “powerful actor” by Newsweek in April 2007. Currently, he has four Grammy Awards to his credit.

“Summertime” is a song about a summer holiday, and Will Smith sings about the importance of relaxing. It has a laidback rap groove with samples of Kool & The Gang. It sounds like a summer block party in a bottle. Alice Cooper’s ‘School’s Out’ reflects the ebullient summer holiday feeling in the mid-1970s. The song was released during the last week of school, and the feeling of rebellion and freedom evokes memories of a summer holiday.

Katrina & the Waves

Katrina & the Waves’ “Summer Holiday” was one of the biggest chart-toppers of the 1980s. The band, which originated in Cambridge, England, featured guitarist Kimberley Rew, drummer Alex Cooper, and vocalist Katrina Leskanich. The band’s success led to a contract with Capitol Records and a worldwide tour.

The band released an album in 1985, which featured re-recorded versions of 10 of their earlier songs. The album reached No. 3 on the UK singles chart and helped Katrina and the Waves to win the Eurovision Song Contest in 1997. After releasing several more albums, Katrina and the Waves split in 1999. Leskanich had been involved in a legal dispute with a previous record label, and she couldn’t use the band’s name. The group disbanded shortly afterward.

Despite its name, Katrina & the Waves’ 1985 radio hit isn’t really about summer. The song is more about the anticipation of a visit with someone you love. The feel-good energy of the song is incredibly infectious, and suggests that summer is more than just a season. Although the band’s original music video was shot on a cold day, the song’s lyrics are surprisingly upbeat.

Will Smith’s ‘Summertime’

Will Smith is returning to his musical roots in a new film. The actor once was one of the biggest hip-hop stars in the world. As part of DJ Jazzy Jeff’s group, he recorded four albums. Now Sony Pictures is adapting one of those records into a hip-hop musical.

The first single from DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s 1991 album Homebase was titled Summertime, and it won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Single. It features rap lyrics added to a Kool & the Gang instrumental. Will Smith’s performance has given the song a resurgence in popularity. In the same year, the song received a cover from rap group Fort Frances, fronted by David McMillin. The new cover is an excellent update on the original, and it’s one of the best covers this year.

Will Smith will produce the film alongside Jon Mone. Other producers include Davis Entertainment’s John Fox and John Davis, along with Screen Gems’ Giselle Johnson. The script will be written by Peter Saji. The producers have been working on the film for several years.
