Cruel Summer

Lyrics

Hot summer streets and the pavements are burning
I sit around
Trying to smile but the air is so heavy and dry
Strange voices are saying (ah, what did they say)

Love the version from Bananarama better.

I would like to hear a rap re-mix of this song. It has potential . . .
yeah, this summer was cruel, I was all alone, for really....
This was the first version I heard of this song--even before Bananarama. I liked this one, and the first time I heard it, I thought they were saying "cool summer." Granted, it was one of those chilly Junes the first time I heard it...
