Lazy Sunday Music: It’s Summer

Posted on: July 7, 2013

Good Sunday, Widdershins.

It’s actually been summertime for a couple of weeks now, but moons and national holidays got in the way.  Although there are no end of songs with the word “summer” in the title, please don’t feel that you must confine yourself to such tunes.  Post anything you like that reminds you of the season in this otherwise open thread,  included beaches, vacations, and the like.  Whatever says “summer” to you will be just fine.

Here’s my list, in no particular order:

(1) A Summer Song – Chad and Jeremy, 1964

(2) Summertime Blues – Eddie Cochran, 1958

(3) School Is Out –  Gary “US” Bonds, 1961

(4) Theme From a Summer Place – The Lettermen, 1965

(5) Warmth of the Sun – The Beach Boys, 1964

Have a great day.

Too obvious?

Keeping in line with the AM radio playlists of my youth…

@1: No such thing as too obvious here.
@2: Oh, I understand completely.

Beata–Elton John!! (And not a top 40 AM EJ either–Brava!)

Good sing-along too.

And some Ella for me and Mary Luke. 😉

Joplin’s version of Summertime

Hoagy is one of Indiana’s native sons. So is Cole Porter.

Excellent selections, all.

Beata@11: Good stuff!

@9 Thank you Fredster. Ella and Gershwin,,,that’s double points.

Mary Luke@14: thank ye! What happened with to the cute pic of the little one?

Why am I still awake?

Beata, I thought you were taking a break from blogging. How is that working out for you?

Chuck, STFU.

Have a nice night.

You tell him Beata!
