Summer In and Out Of the City

Boston Globe picks a hit song for every summer since...1914, and adds video in many places.  So we go back to the "Macarena" and "I've Got You Babe" (but no "Satisfaction" or "Like a Rolling Stone" or "Summer in the City") and "Locomotion" (R.I.P. Gerry Goffin), backward to "Jambalaya" and Tommy Dorsey  and Irving Berlin...  One silly season sample below, and below that, the greatest American song ever, with two giants, Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong, "St. Louis Blues."
