Hamptons 100 Songs of Summer #79

“Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves

Sunshine and summer go hand in hand, so it should be no surprise to see this 80s hits on the Top 100 playlist. Originally conceived as a ballad, Katrina decided to take “Walking on Sunshine” in a different direction—and it’s a good thing she did. This get-up-and-go, good-times tune from the group’s 1983 debut album (of the same name) embodies the happiness of summer in the Hamptons.

In fact, the song is so well loved, it is reportedly one of EMI records’ top-earning tracks for advertising and film. Who wouldn’t want to buy something that makes you feel so good?
