"The Boys of Summer" -- Don Henley version, not The Ataris (it's a Deadhead sticker, not a Black Flag sticker, hear?)
"Magic" -- The Cars ("Summer turns me upside down, Summer summer summer . . . ")
"Sealed with a Kiss" -- Brian Hyland ("Though we gotta say goodbye for the summer . . . ")

Not all my choices are about summer per se, but to me at least, they evoke the spirit of a summery feeling.

"Summer Breeze" - Seals & Croft
"Dock of the Bay" - Otis Redding
"Margaritaville" - Jimmy Buffett
"Under the Boardwalk" - The Drifters
"Listen to the Music" - Doobie Bros.
"Ramblin' Man" - Allman Bros.
