I need some suggestions

On my last day at work (10 to go!!) I will be running my final Music Triva. My theme will be summer, holidays, and a little bit of leaving work. I need to have 20 songs, so that I can play the first 30 seconds or so and everyone has to guess them. I'm looking for song suggestions of any genre that I can use to hopefully baffle a few people, as well as some that will be quite familiar. The theme can relate to either the title or the artist. My audience will range from the late teens until the late forties, so anything you can think of will help.

So far I have:
Summer Holiday - Cliff Richard
Boys of Summer - Don Henley
Work - Uncanny X-Men (just for the line 'everybody wants to work, oh no not me')
Freedom - Wham
In the Summertime - Mungo Jerry
Summertime - DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

I'm trying to avoid Boys, Boys, Boys (Summertime Love) by Sabrina unless I get really desperate.

Help!

I will ponder this one and come back if I have any brilliant ideas (or even half-decent ones!)

You could always play to your boss/es: "Do you enjoy what you do? If not, just stop - don't stay there and ROT". Subtle? he he. Maybe not.

OK, here are my (mostly woeful) suggestions:

"Summer Lovin" from Grease

that song that goes - 'working nine to five'...don't know the name

"Holiday" by Madonna

I think I am trapped in the 80's. I am tragic. Don't hate me.

Jelly, you are truly evil - I love your first suggestion. There is nothing tragic about being stuck in the 80's either - I thought of Cruel Summer by Bananarama, and I'm a bit tempted by We're not gonna take it, and Am I ever going to see your face again. Now I understand why music is therapy :)

Oh "Bang on the Drum" by Todd Rundgren: "I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drum all day..."

Also, "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye".

And for a hard one... "The Way" by Fastball: "they made up their minds, and they started packing...an exit to eternal summer slacking..."
