Ignite #37 Preview: Summer Pop Songs, 1595 to Present

Every summer has that song. You know the one. You hear it playing in coffee shops, on the radio, at sunset BBQs. Then next summer, it’s a new song.

You have to wonder though – when was the first Summer pop hit? How far back do these earworms go? And even though each song is very different, what do they all have in common?

Michael Hamm, composer and musician, gives us a multi-layered tour of the last 400 or so years of pop music.

This is part of a series previewing the talks we’ll be hosting at Ignite Seattle #37. Interested? Get your tickets, but make it quick: Ignite Seattle sells out.
