There are certain songs that will always be associated in my mind and heart with summer, either because it was summer when I first heard it or because
the song itself is about summer, or both. Some Summer songs have really deep and strong memories that are tied to them and when I hear them I can
remember where i was and what was going on in my life the first time i heard it. So, I was wondering what songs or musical pieces do you associate
with Summer? What songs set off those intense and wonderful memories of going to the beach or hanging out with your friends at the local pool or the
family get together at the park?
I will start with a few of mine and then you all are invited to post your own Summer songs. Also, feel free to add any comments about your memories of
summer and the music you grew up listening to. O.K., So here we Go!
Percy Faith & His Orchestra - Theme From " A Summer Place"
When someone is talking about Summer and music in the same sentance this is the song that immediately comes into my mind. It also just may be the most
melodic piece of music I have ever heard. My all-time fav "Summer" song.
The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations
10CC - I'm Not In Love
Sly & The Family Stone - Hot Time In The Summer Time
I remember just where i was the first time I heard this song on the radio; I was sitting in my car with my girlfriend, Carol, at a McDonalds in
Lakewood California on a very warm summer night in 1971 and I was totally godsmacked. What a great piece of music and in my mind will always be
associated with summer.
