Joe Satriani, ‘Summer Song’ vs. Bob Seger, ‘Night Moves': Greatest Summer Song Battle
We began this competition with 32 of classic rock’s best summertime songs. The field is already down to 16, and will be cut in half again and again each of the next four weeks by your votes, until we arrive at the greatest summer song of all time.
Seger's nostalgic tale of a pair of lovers "trying to lose those awkward teenage blues" in the summer of 1962 rather handily defeated Aerosmith's "Permanent Vacation" in the first round, while Joe Satriani's 1992 gem "Summer Song" edged out Kid Rock's Lynyrd Skynyrd and Warren Zevon-sampling "All Summer Long" in its first battle.
