This is a bad azz song. The build up in tempo is genius. It is easy to get lulled into a relaxed mood and before you know it the tempo and mood is one that it is almost impossible to stay still. Love it!

I don't care what style of music you love...This song transcends all. This tune conjures up a beautiful fantasy in my mind of summer and just grooving. It's like have a 62 Impala convertible, and no where to be.

Makes me want to wear a floppy hat, do a double chicken wing move, followed by a step hop, then to a half James Brown split and up to a spin.

A great classic!

@Lawrence Berry, I completely agree with your statement. Will Smith probably did a lot to bring this gem back into play when he sampled so much of it for his rap version. Love to drive an pop this in; great music for cruising.

Left/Right signal phasing artifact with (usb) earphones on this song that I've heard on this and at least one other pandora track (IIRC, one of Sublime's hits): volume seems to be louder in one one channel and lower in the other, it then reverses to be louder on the other ear in less than a second. This repeats all the way through the song. Not a good experience.

I first heard Summer Madness on an Atlanta radio program called Jazz Flavors back in college almost 30 years ago. It was one of my favorites of all time. One day it popped up on Pandora and I almost fell out of my chair--it was the first time I'd heard it since then. Talk about being transported back in time. The memories came flooding back, building like this song builds from start to finish. Fantastic!

Even as i grow older this song still resonates the same emotions i had as 16 year old.
