Summer songs are special because they evoke all that is supremely wonderful about the sizzling season of summertime.
When I hear songs that became popular during many of the summers of my today and also of my young adult past, I am instantly transported back to driving in my car with the windows down and the summer air mixing with my hair. T-shirt, cutoffs, flip flops. It’s all about the essence of summer.
I recently was reminded of the special nature of summer songs when I was at a local farmer’s market and “Summer Breeze”, that oldie but goodie by Seals & Crofts, was nicely delivered through the outdoor speakers for all to enjoy.
As you probably suspected, summer is my favorite time of the year and I hold on to every hot second of it. For now, I am ignoring the school ads and other signals that Fall is getting ready to transition into our calendars.
Instead, I am focusing instead on the sweet, sweet, oh so sweet days of summer. . . .Easy. Breezy. Mellow. Smooth.
