So I have an idea with which I need your help.
Let’s devote the weekend to the music which epitomizes summer—songs from the summers of your youth, from vacations remembered, music that was played on transistor radios at the beach or on the car radio during nighttime summer drives with girlfriends and boyfriends.
Give me your suggestions of favorite summer songs in the comments to this post or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re so moved, share a favorite summertime memory with the suggestion.
Let’s have some fun with this.
I’ll start the beachball rolling with today’s Groove, an “earworm” song from 1958 when I was ten. It reminds me of lazy, hazy days spent at our club’s swimming pool while my mom was playing golf. This song may drive you nuts, but for me it is a signature summer song that reminds me of carefree childhood days when Mom and Dad paid for everything.
Now… share your favorite summer song.
Groove of the Day
