A summer hit is a song which gains huge popularity during the summer and then almost completely disappears when the summer is over. Something that many summer hits have in common is that they are dance music with lyrics in a non-English language (e.g. Spanish). The phenomenon is mostly European, and from the Americas.

World map showing the Americas CIA political map of the Americas The Americas are the lands of the Western hemisphere or New World consisting of the continents of North America[1], Central America and South America with their associated islands and regions. ...


Summer hits are quite cheerful and upbeat and their main success is due to the catchy rhyme and not the lyrics, which are sometimes repetitive, playful and generally hollow. The music is often criticised for being "forced" on the audience while lacking actual artistic value, talent or deeper meaning. Peer pressure comprises a set of group dynamics whereby a group in which one feels comfortable may override personal habits, individual moral inhibitions or idiosyncratic desires to impose a group norm of attitudes and/or behaviors. ...


The term can be used with a negative connotation, where it implies temporal one-hit wonders without an actual significance. Fans of summer hits (who are by definition occasional) are 'accused' of lack of sophisticated musical taste with connotations of conformity, implying that those persons will listen to whatever is popular at the time rather than making their own choice. In the music industry, a one-hit wonder is an artist who is generally known for only one hit single. ...

Origin

This popularity usually comes from people hearing the song whilst clubbing in the Balearic Islands, where Spanish is widely spoken, and requesting them once they return home, usually to the UK or Germany. Once the song has received club and radio play there, it passes into other European countries.

A track can also be a summer hit solely in one country. In Ireland, the summer of 2000 had the track "Maniac 2000" by Mark McCabe played almost constantly. This led to the track being requested in clubs in Spain by Irish tourists. This might have started the cycle by which it would become a hit across all of Europe, but licensing problems meant that the song was only available commercially in Ireland, and hence the returning clubbers could not purchase it or get it played on the radio.
