There are so many that bring back memories of summertime in your youth, or all those long hot days at the beach, and the backyard BBQ's.
What songs make you think of those times?
For me it's these..
BANANARAMA- Cruel Summer


KIM MITCHELL- Patio Lanterns

The best song we ever went cruising to....
THE EAGLES- Life in the Fast lane

This is where I grew up, and spent every summer...

MY HOUSE, on the river.(I no longer live there)

This tour boat would go passed my house twice a day when I was a kid..and today 20 + years later, it still does.

Hey Access, where are those pictures from?

And to answer your question, Beach Boys songs make me think of summer, but this one below makes me think of good times at the tiki bar in the Caribbean:

The pictures are from where I grew up in Muskoka, Ontario , Canada.
I went back there this past weekend.
I swear the entire town smells like waterfalls, pine trees and wildflowers.
God I miss it.

Ah yes, the beach boys. OF COURSE!
I got the autograph of one Brian Wilson when I was ten years old.
I lost it somewhere over the years though.

Edit to add, our own local band HIGH HOLY DAYS..and their Video GETAWAY.
THIS is summer in MUSKOKA!!!!!(Totally filmed From Toronto to Muskoka)

I'm not really sure why, but the following song really makes me think of summer. Throughout high school I had four or five friends that I spent almost every day with, and we had the same routine every day. Wake up and either walk to the beach or hitchhike, and we were rarely lucky enough for it to be the latter. (It was a good 90 minute walk every day each way) We swam every day and then partied all night, then spent each day laughing about what we had done the day before. Acted pretty dumb, but it was one of those summers that a guy doesn't forget. Was lucky enough to have some damn good friends.

3 Doors Down - Be Like That

And this is another one that really reminds me of summer. This is a good one to close out a good summer party outside somewhere. I always reminisce when I listen to this song. A lot of times I found myself stretched out in a fold up chair, ready to call it a night, listening to this song and calling the night a success with all of my friends.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesdays Gone

(Excellent thread!)

Songs that remind me of Summer when I hear them?

Gino Vannelli - Black Cars

Walking On Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves

The Cars - Moving In Stereo

Don't know why it's set to Harry Potter crap.

Gary Numan - Cars

Actually anything by The Cars reminds me of summer as does anything by Kim Mitchell

Hmmm... kind of a "car theme going on there. When you're a teenager a car = freedom.

A few more:

The Lovin' Spoonful - Summer In The City

Steppenwolf - Magic Carpet Ride

Great idea for a thread!

Anything by Bob marley.

One love
3 little birds

Well nothing beats just chilling during a summer night with beer, good friends, and bob marley.(and um other stuff that im not sure if the T&C would allow me to say that)

There just something about his music that is so positive and just makes you want to relax and chill.
