Songs of Summer, #18 - "Surrender" (1978)

Amazingly enough, Cheap Trick is nearing 40 years in the biz.  But I'm not sure they ever recorded a better album than "Heaven Tonight," which was released in May 1978 and became one of the big summer albums of that year.

And I'm quite sure they never recorded a better song than "Surrender," the big hit off of that album.  It's a great, classic song, one that worked just as well on the FM radio playlists of the day as it did on Top 40 radio.

Turn it up loud, and enjoy - "Surrender," Cheap Trick, from the summer of 1978.
