Here's a fun game: Starting from the bottom, work your way to the top of that list and see how far you make it before you land on a song that isn't awful. I think most people will land on 1982.

This became my summah song instantly after hearing it for the first time last month. People don't make enough frantic music about booty shaking these days.

We didn't even get a Summah over here in the UK but if we had, this would have been the anthem. Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic on some silly Summah biz- enjoy!
(Wasn't sure how to embed properly- apologies)
