Summer by Calvin Harris was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, May 10, 2014 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The song was Calvin Harris' fourth UK #1 single as a lead artist. This was the second song titled "Summer" to reach the Top 10 of the Hot 100. The previous one by the funk-rock band War peaked at #7 in 1976. Structurally, this song has an interesting quirk: there are no lyrics in the chorus. After Harris sings the first verse, the beat picks up but there are no vocals to go along with it, as the EDM groove provides the necessary lift on its own. This pattern is repeated again, followed by a bridge and a final chorus, giving the song a standard verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus structure, just with a chorus that could be deemed an instrumental break.
