When you think of the song “Cruel Summer” which band do you think of?
The song was a hit for the girl group back in 1984, peaking at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 that year.
(BTW-Bananarama is touring for the first time in nearly three decades, but you’ll have to go across the pond to see them. Their reunion shows are all in the UK this November.)
But they aren’t the only ones to have a hit with it.
Nearly 15 years later, Ace of Base did almost an identical chart performance!
Yes, we’re talking about the same people who did “The Sign” in the early 90s!
Anyway, their cover version peaked at #10, just one chart position shy of the original!
Here’s their version:
So, which version do you like better?
