In the entertainment industry, a summer hit is a song that is released and peaks in its popularity during summer and often later quickly fades away. In some years, a single pop song will gain widespread international popularity during the summer holiday season, becoming that summer's definitive summer hit in many countries. Many of the best-known summer hits emerge from outside the British and American pop music industries.


Songs that are marketed to be summer hits are very common, and often feature an upbeat tempo and descriptions of things such as relaxation outdoors and beach parties. These are songs considered ideal listening during summer activities. These intentional summer hits are most common in country (particularly country pop) and mainstream popular music but are much less common in rock.

The opposite of a summer hit in the music industry would be a Christmas song, a category that usually incorporates general winter songs as well.
