Cruel Summer recreates when Bananarama were still struggling to make money in their early years. It features the group singing along the streets of New York City and a bumbling cop duo chase the girls as they make their escape in a truck. During the chase, the trio throw bananas at a trailing police cruiser. At the end, everybody dances on a rooftop. A remix video was released in 1989.

Cruel Summer has two videos. The European was shot in Italy and features a woman wandering a city.
