Cover of 100 Hits of the '80s

From 100 Hits of the '80s and 100 other releases

“Boys (Summertime Love)” is a song recorded by Italian singer Sabrina Salerno. It is the third single from her eponymous album and achieved great success in many countries, including Spain, Switzerland, France and Italy, where it was a number-one single. It was Sabrina’s first single to be released in the UK. The song was re-released as a remixed version twice: in France in 1995, retitled as “Boys ‘95”, and in 2003 as “Boys Boys Boys (The Dance Remixes).

“Boys (Summertime Love)” had its greatest success in Italy, staying at number one for two months.

It was also a big hit in France, staying for five weeks at number one. The single debuted at number 29 and remained on the French SNEP Singles Chart for 25 weeks from December 12, 1987 to May 28, 1988. Sabrina was the only pin-up girl at that time to reach the top of the charts in France, as opposed to the French Lova Moor and the British Samantha Fox. Certified Gold disc by the SNEP, the single was the first number one by an Italian singer. According to the Infodisc Website, the song is the 292nd best-selling single of all time in France, with 683,000 copies sold. It also reached number three in the UK Singles Chart (despite, or perhaps because of, the video’s ban there) and number 11 in Australia.

Part of the success of the song is due to its music video, filmed at the Florida hotel in Jesolo (Veneto, Italy). In it, Sabrina splashes about in a swimming pool, while her bikini top keeps sliding down, thus revealing her nipples.
