For some reason Nirvana's "I Hate Myself and I Want to Die" reminds me of summer. I look bad in shorts and I hate to sweat.

Bee Gees' cloying "I Started A Joke" because it was playing relentlessly every summer evening on my really cool round AM radio (changed 9V battery every three hours) and the song fueled my pre-adolescent irritated attitude; and Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear The Reaper" because I could drive nihilistically, late at night, through empty suburban streets that all smelled like wet cut grass -- and STILL couldn't get the idea out of my head that putting an umlaut on "Oyster" seemed hopelessly illiterate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavy_metal_umlaut

"Daniel" by Elton John. I worked at UPS one summer and the relentless planes flying overhead always reminded me of that song.
