Summer's Out!, for the Summer...and Fall

So gang, summer's gone, it didn't take the heat with it but it's gone (which is Bush's fault, after all he invented global warming to piss Al Gore off), but since the air is still simmering let's see which songs are as well. That's right, it's reader input time again; aka. I hope Luke and Patrick still read this.
Pass it on, pass it on and LTME will crank out the SONGS OF SUMMER (The Essential 12, thereof).

Who brought the heat? Was it the summer of Rehab? Is Prince the new king? Was it as easy as 1234, or was it Spoon fed? Did Justice and Dan Deacon rock the house or do the honors go to LCD? What about that little wuss song from that emo group that stole the big plain white T fashion from all the playas that are not of Anglo-Saxon descent? Kanye, where you at fool? Did you dig the mellowness to beat the heat with the likes of Caribou or Bishop Allen? There was little rain, so who's for an Umbrella?*

Regardless of who wins, it was a good summer and you all were worthy.

*I don't listen to the radio so I had to Google and find out what the songs were actual real people listen to

Off the top of my head, the Summer Jamz of 2007:

a. "Farewell to the Pressure Kids", Kevin Drew.

b. "Art Isn't Real (City of Sin)", Deer Tick. This entire album is really good. Definitely in my top 5 of the year. BCP, you need to write this one up.

c. "West Side", Studio

d. "I Feel it All", by Luke's girlfriend. Her successful solo career probably means that BSS will never properly reunite, but at least we got a good record out of it.

e. "You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb", Spoon.

f. "Hare Lipped Bust", Ham1. For the skinny jeans wearers in the Classic City.

It's possible that I'm missing the point of the Summer Jamz exercise (none of these songs has achieved anything resembling ubiquity), but this is what I've been listening to.
