As a fourth grade teacher with less than one week of school left, this intern has summer on the brain, big time.
It seems that every summer has its own song. You know, that one song that when it comes on the radio years later, you cringe as you are taken right back to that summer when it was played endlessly on the radio.
Here’s just a sampling of some real summer winners from the 90’s:
Remember “Mambo Number Five”? (that’s right, summer of ’99). Or Bone Thugs n’ Harmony’s “Crossroads” (‘96). How about “Fly” by Sugar Ray?…ugh, can’t even think about it.
So what will we say years later was the song of 2010? Hopefully “Hey Soul Sister” has run its course, or this intern will take her eyeballs out. What songs really take you back?
Bonus points if you know who this is:
