Staring at the Sun immediately comes to mind.

"Summer stretchin on the grass/summer dresses pass/in the shade of a willow tree/creeps a' crawlin over me/over me and over you/stuck together with God's glue/it's gonna get stickier too/it's been a long, hot summer..."

And then of course there are two U2 songs with the word Summer actually in the title. Summer Rain and Indian Summer Sky.

Bono says that SDABTO is a "summer song", in that's it's totally pointless lighthearted lyrically.

And I think Bono described AMAAW as summery too.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

There's also the Bono-Andrea Corr duet Summer Wine.

And though not having "summer" directly mentioned, I always found Heartland, Kite, Wild Honey, Electrical Storm, and Flower Child to be summer-y songs.

Although Summer is in the name of ISS, Indian Summer usually refers to Fall/Winter.....? :runs away:

I had forgotten about Electrical Storm. It's my favorite summer song, even though it's very heavy.

I also heavily associate Electrical Storm with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows... probably because I was listening to Electrical Storm over and over again when I sped my way through that book for the first time in July (summer!) of 2007... it seemed to fit.
