Yahoo! recently held an online, bracket-style tournament to determine The Greatest Summer Song of All Time . . . and when it was all said and done, THE BEACH BOYS' "Surfin' USA" came out on top. See if you agree with this list. Would you add others? ~Dennis
They started out with 32 songs, and over the course of the competition, they supposedly received tens of thousands of votes.
The Final Four also included: "Vacation" by THE GO-GO'S, "California Gurls" by KATY PERRY, and JIMMY BUFFETT'S"Margaritaville", which went up against "Surfin' USA" in the finale.
In addition to "Margaritaville" and "Vacation", to make it to the end, "Surfin' USA" had to beat "Wipeout", by THE SURFARIS, "In the Summertime" by MUNGO JERRY, and "Summer Nights" from the "Grease" soundtrack.
