As this list of depressing summer songs reminds us all too well, life may be a beach but good luck getting all that hot, grainy sand out of your swim trunks.

Since we already did a list of mostly happy summer songs, we decided it would only be fair to give equal time to the bad things that can happen during the season’s warm days and beautiful nights.

So together with our friends over at, we’ve compiled a list of summer bummer songs that find the likes of Don Henley, Billy Idol and the Who dealing with boredom, broken hearts, low-paying jobs and other sticky situations.
