The Go-Go's could quite possibly be the quintessential female Summer group. (HERC knows it ain't Bananarama.) But which song in their repertoire is the most deserving Song Of Summer? As HERC was reviewing the candidates in his iTunes library, Glenn Cattanach's medley "This Is The Go-Go's" came up and HERC knew he had his winner. Featuring "Our Lips Are Sealed", "We Got The Beat", "Head Over Heels" and "Vacation" packed into seven minutes, Glenn doesn't do much fancy mixing stuff on this, the closing track of the 1994 DJ promo The Edge Level 1 - if anything, it leaves you wanting more.
If you don't have this one in your collection and because HERC couldn't find a link for you, check out this older version by Bradley D. Hinkle that first appeared on Ultimix #4 back in 1986. It's got four more songs for a total of eight and even more importantly you can listen to it below.
