Chosen by James Murphy, LCD Soundsystem

"It’s a really summery, happy sounding record, but it’s actually one of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard. The chorus goes on about how ‘that summer feeling’s gonna haunt you the rest of your life’, it talks about all the great things about summer, but how nothing in your life will ever compare to them."
