Summer time conjurs up images of sandy beaches, pools, hot steamy days, tans, and vacations, to name a few. Summer also gets me into the mood to turn the music up loud and dance. This is something we do a lot in our home, but especially during the summer. While I was thinking of some "summer" tunes to add to my playlist, I challenged myself to see how many songs with a 'summer' theme I could think of… without using Google.
These are the songs I thought of…
Thunder Island – by Jay Ferguson (1978)
Summer Nights – from the Grease soundtrack. Sung by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. (1978)
Summer Breeze – by Seals and Crofts (1972)
School's Out – by Alice Cooper (1972)
Heat Wave – by Martha and the Vandellas (1963)
Summer of '69 – by Bryan Adams (1984)
Groovin' – by The Young Rascals (1967)
Under The Boardwalk – by The Drifters (1964)
California Girls – by the Beach Boys (1965)
California Gurls – by Katy Perry (2010)
All I Wanna Do – by Sheryl Crow (1994)
Cruel Summer – by Bananarma (1983)
Vacation – by the Go-Go's (1982)
The Boys of Summer – by Don Henley (1984)
I could use some help adding to this list, so please add any songs you can think of about "summer", in the comments! I hope you enjoy the longest day of the year… Summer Solstice!
