You were...hot as hell?

There's a beautiful, beautiful summer pop song I heard maybe five years ago, that supposedly either won a songwriting competition or came close, and now I can't find out for the life what it was - please help.

A few years ago, I heard a song on a podcast or internet radio show of some kind - here's what I remember about it.

1. It was a very hooky, very catchy, very cheesy pop song about summer, and reminiscing all these teen summer activities.
2. The hook in the chorus was something like "you were...hot as hell! beautiful [winter?]!"
3. It contained a breakdown where a vocalist just talked about the days of summer, what it felt like, etc.
4. The name was something like "The forgotten lost days of summer," but I could be totally wrong about this.
5. I think (could be wrong about this, as well) the DJ said it had either won some song competition, or had been a runner-up.

I've done a far amount of searching through SongFight.org, CDBaby, The Podsafe Music Network, Hype Machine, not to mention searching for lyrics online...and nothing. Any help would be much appreciated.

You had trouble finding it because the word summer doesn't appear in the song, only the word summertime. Or, according to these lyrics, summeritme.

Glad to help. My wife tells me I am an cornucopia of useless knowledge. The uselessness of the knowledge is is the eye of the beholder I guess.
