Summer's gone: the death of the holiday hitYou remember summer songs, don't you? These soundtracks to long, lazy days of sunshine often took on a life of their own and became memories in themselves. They might seem silly and naïve from the distance of a few years, but they always take you back to when you first heard them. It might be a younger you lying on a sunlounger beside a Spanish swimming pool as Eurodisco tunes are blasted out from a PA, or maybe dancing in a nightclub later on. The songs might be cheesy, but they stay with you. Often, they would migrate from Mediterranean resorts to the Irish charts, as returning holidaymakers bought the single to chase that receding summer high.
