Everyone has their favorite songs. I am no exception. I love all kinds of music and I have my favorite bands with Three Doors Down being at the top with the Beatles. I can keep going and going about more to my favorite singers and bands but that is not what I want to write about today.
My favorite season is the summer. I love the heat (not so much humidity). I love beaches and cookouts and fireflies and swimming pools and long, long days when the sun is out more than the moon. My love of all things summer is the main reason why I love the Caribbean so much. It’s summer there most of the time. How wonderful is that?
There are a few songs that make me think of all summer places and things.
“It’s gonna be a long, hot summer, we should be together, with your feet up on the dashboard now. Singing along with the radio, it’s such a beautiful sound. And when you say my name in the middle of the day, I swear I see the stars come out. When you hold my hand in the back of my mind, just waiting on the sun to go down”
“The only place that I wanna be is where you are. Cause anymore than a heartbeat is just too far”.
“It’s a holiday when we’re together. I wanna stay with you forever. Somewhere, somewhere sunny and 75. You and me on a beach chair. Yeah, I’m so there. Every time I look in your eyes. Kissing you and the salt air, I can taste it I swear. Take me somewhere sunny and 75”.
“Yeah looking at you, girl, standing there. Got your wayfarers on and the sun in your hair. And just like the song in a seashell, you’ll be stuck in my mind, bouncing around in my head and baby I can tell”
“As long as I live, whatever I do, as great as it is, you know what’s a bummer, I ain’t ever gonna beat this summer with you. Baby, it’s true. The taste of your kiss is so bittersweet. I ain’t gonna beat, no way I’m gonna beat this summer with you.
These are just three songs that make me think of summer. They also show my romantic side. Do you have any favorite songs that make you think/feel/remind you of summer? I’d love to hear.
