Guess what? Tomorrow’s the 4th of July. The midpoint of summer, at least emotionally if not technically.
The time to take stock of what summer is all about. And to count down the top five summer songs.
5. The Lovin’ Spoonful, Summer In The City.
4. The Beach Boys, Surfin’ USA. I have never surfed but if I ever do (doubtful) it will because this song made me want to do it.
3. Bruce Springsteen, The Girls With Their Summer Clothes. On his melancholic The Rising album.
2. Eddie Cochran, Ain’t No Cure For The Summertime Blues. Guess what? Hanson did a really great cover of this song. Yes, the MMMmmmbop guys!
1.Don Henley, The Boys Of Summer. Was there a doubt from the moment you read the blog title?
