"Summer Babe" is a 1992 song by Pavement. It was the last single released on Chicago's Drag City label before the band moved to the New York-based Matador label. The songs on this single would later be included on the Drag City compilation Westing (By Musket & Sextant), and on Matador's Slanted & Enchanted: Luxe & Reduxe. The single was listed (and described as an EP) in a mid-90s Matador Records mail-order catalog as Exact Wording of Threat, a reference to the text featured in the single's cover art. A slightly different mix of "Summer Babe," known as "Summer Babe (Winter Version)," became the first track on the band's debut album Slanted and Enchanted. The song was also ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as #286 in their list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.
