No, we’re not talking about blueberry or apricot. NPR has compiled a list of some top summer songs from 1962 — the “ear worms” that seem to get stuck in your brain and remind you of the summer you heard them first no matter how much time passes. Scroll through the long list or listen to radio streaming, and you’ll notice certain things stay the same — they have catchy hooks and are easy to sing, while the overall tone changes, shifting from beach-y rock to boy bands to hip hop and many genres in between.
