"Cruel Summer", a song by British girl group Bananarama, was a U.K. number eight hit in 1983 and a U.S. Billboard Hot 100 number nine hit in 1984.
The music video features a take on the American TV show The Dukes of Hazzard, with a bumbling cop duo who chase the girls as they make their escape in a truck (at one point, Bananarama members throw bananas at a trailing police cruiser). When Bananarama were still struggling to make money in their early years, they even performed the song at a beauty contest in Hawaii.
