"Cruel Summer" by Bananarama

Birthday wishes go out today to Siobhan Fahey, founding member - along with lifelong friends Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin - of the highly successful trio Bananarama; Fahey later went on to even more fame as part of Shakespears Sister alongside uber-cool Marcella Detroit, and even hit the tabloids when she married (and then later divorced) Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame in the years between 1987 and 1996.

Cruel Summer was originally released as part of their self-titled second album in 1983, but failed to ignite until it was included on the soundtrack of the 1984 film The Karate Kid. Apparently, the video is a parody of both The Dukes of Hazzard and Knight Rider.
