Default Did you all catch it last night??

On the finale of The Voice, Sawyer and Farrell did a duet of "Summer Breeze."
I was so happy to hear it again in a modern venue with contemporary artists performing it. It keeps this classic masterpiece alive and relevant and makes me long for my boat and Meredith Bay sunshine. Very Nice!!

I heard it. They did a fabulous job. Fortunately I was out on our pontoon boat this past Sunday and I was enjoying the summer (spring???) breeze.

I'm assuming it's Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts?
Fantastic song by a fantastic duo. So many great songs from them during the 70's that remind me of vacations on Cape Cod when I was a kid, playing softball on the sand bars and hearing those songs come from my Mom's A.M. radio.

Sorry 'bout that...I'm back now!

Default What are your favorite summer songs

The previous post by Sum-r breeze made me want to start this thread.

With boats going in the water, the great stretch of weather we've had and summer fast approaching, it would be great to hear what a few of your favorite summer time songs are. I Love hearing the music I grew up with when my family vacationed on Cape Cod.

I know, I know...there are so many but there's always a few that put you in that special place or remind you of summers past. Here's a few some new some old......

Seals and Crofts "Get Closer"
"Hummingbird"
America "Ventura Highway"
Alive and Kicking "Tighter Tighter"
Bee Gee's "Fanny Be Tender" (Actually anything by the Bee Gee's)
Percy Faith "Theme from A Summer Place" (Mom's favorite)
Spiral Staircase "I Love You More Today Than Yesterday"
Michael Murphy "Wildfire"
Gorillaz "Empire Ants"
The Sundays "Summertime"

I could go on all day............

Default Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven--not necessarily a favorite, but they always seemed to play that at the summer camp dances. I remember sweaty palms and major awkwardness when it went from a slow dance to a faster dance.

For sure a tough dance transition in the middle of that song. You go from sexy slow dance to rockin' the air guitar!!

Default Another One

I've always considered "Born to be Wild" by Steppenwolf to be one of my favorite summer songs, going (way!) to back to my 20s:

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Looking for adventure
In whatever comes our way

Yeah, darlin'
Gonna make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I gotta agree with CateP ..... "Stairway to Heaven" has got to be at the top of my list ..... but ..... followed closely by:
2) "Communication Breakdown" <--- playing this repetitively at (or above) the threshold of pain got me kicked out of my grandmother's home in Melvin during the summer of 1970
3) "Lay Lady Lay" <--- fortunately I found alternative room accommodations sleeping in the attic of Wawbeek Cottage Colony's office (thank you, Chet Fernald!). This song helped me to feel sorry for myself and always kinda put me in the zone
4) "Hey Joe"
5) "Love is Blue" <--- I'll bet no one remembers this one (I won't bore you ..... it's a long story!)

I was...

let's just say "younger"...

and standing in front of the TV late one summer night watching Midnight Special or maybe In Concert or maybe it was Rock Concert, and these two unusual dudes were getting ready to perform. One was wearing an unusual hat.

Just as I was about to utter "WTF?" They started to play.

I sat down and listened.

WOW!

"Save Your Heart For Me" (walk along the lake with someone new) by Gary Lewis and the Playboys (1965). Oh yes- summer love!

Another song with good lake memories is: "little Red Rented Row Boat" ( 1962) by Joe Dowell. This song brings back memories because when I was young summer tourists rented cabins in Green's Basin. Each cabin came with a red row boat. I use to see everyone rowing around.

Love is Blue is fantastic. I forgot about that one. I think there's an instrumental version and vocal version. I have to download that one.

If you like instrumentals from the 70's check out these two great ones.

Mantovani "Theme From Midnight Cowboy"
Tony Hatch "Soal Coaxing"

Another great summer song is "Suavecito" by Malo

I love "Mountain Time" If you like Joe you should check out a band he was in recently called "Black Country Communion" with Glenn Hughes from Deep Purple on lead vocals and and Jason Bonham on drums. Great stuff! Check out Glenn Hughes at 7:08.

Joe is an incredible guitar player! I also saw him in Boston a few years ago. Glenn Hughes is my absolute favorite singer, songwriter, by far. Seen him a few times in different locations over the years. The most memorable was at BB Kings Blues Club in NYC. He is truly one of a kind! Here's one of his ballads and one of my favorites...

Island Girl,

I remember that song "Wayward Wind". It was playing the morning I woke up knowing we were leaving Lake Winni that day to go back home to NJ. Have mixed emotions when I hear that song now.

Default Not your typical summer song, but - - -

Whte Christmas! Yeah, I know. But here's 'the rest of the story' as they say:

I was in a carload of campers returning to Camp Treasure Island from a hootenanny (you all remember those, right??) in the early 60s, and of course we were singing our favorite folk songs. At several points we briefly ran out of songs to sing. I do Not remember how White Christmas came into the picture, but it did, and we kept repeating "and may all your Christmases be white" until we could come up with the next song to sing. And yeah, we gave that refrain quite a workout, over and over. And so every time I hear the song, I think back to that wonderful car trip in NH. Ah, the memories - Thanks for the excuse to bring them back.

With boats going in the water, the great stretch of weather we've had and summer fast approaching, it would be great to hear what a few of your favorite summer time songs are. I Love hearing the music I grew up with when my family vacationed on Cape Cod.

I know, I know...there are so many but there's always a few that put you in that special place or remind you of summers past. Here's a few some new some old......

Seals and Crofts "Get Closer"
"Hummingbird"
America "Ventura Highway"
Alive and Kicking "Tighter Tighter"
Bee Gee's "Fanny Be Tender" (Actually anything by the Bee Gee's)
Percy Faith "Theme from A Summer Place" (Mom's favorite)
Spiral Staircase "I Love You More Today Than Yesterday"
Michael Murphy "Wildfire"
Gorillaz "Empire Ants"
The Sundays "Summertime"

I could go on all day............
Lots to remember: ELO Telephone Line, Eagles most of their stuff, Buffet Come Monday and Bob Marley One love. Newer and more relevant Kenny Chesney's song Boston.

No one mentioned Summer in the City by Lovin Spoonful?

But Summertime by Janis Joplin is great; no disrespect to the WHO

List could go on, but as Steve says this is fun

On our first outing of the year, as we leave the marina and go under the covered bridge to Little Squam I put on Frank Sinatras Summer Wind....It's timeless.

Great one.
And if you like Ray Davies and the Kinks please check out this song called "Days" that he does live in Glastonbury England. It's about one of the founding members of the Kinks and though he wrote in 1968 he gets choked up in the beginning.

I think of my mentor "Ketch" every time I hear it.

It is a great song. Was 16, I think when it came out. I loved so much I learned it on the piano and can still play it. (Paul Mauriat). Try this live version...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEUJBQ1uI4M

Also, for the record, I think my favriote summer song is Nat King Cole, "Lazy, Crazy, Hazy Days of Summer". Just hearing it makes me want to go to the beach or out in the boat.

Sorry, I confused the songs. The Who did a version of Sumertime Blues, not bad, but hard to beat the original.

This thread is going to develop into a playlist on my iPod!

Not sure of the time frame but one of our [my wife and I] favorite summer songs was STARLAND VOCAL BAND, AFTERNOON DELIGHT. My kids could never understand why we liked it so much. And we never told them either.

Wayward Wind by Gogie Grant is one of my all time favorites but long before the 70's.

So many good memories on this thread and many from our days of camping at Gunstock every summer for many years.

Default Summer Song

Although I was only 5 when this song came out,my older sisters were teenagers. The AM radio was always on or they were playing their 45 records (I remember the case they carried them around in). Chad and Jeremy will always get my vote!

Smile "Summer" by War

My two favorites are "Summer Breeze" by Seals and Krofts and "Summer" by War. These are in my "Summer Mix" on my MP-3 Player..

Ridin' 'round town with all the windows down
Eight track playin' all your fav'right sounds
The rhythm of the bongos fill the park
The street musicians tryin' to get a start

'Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

Stretched out on a blanket in the sand
Kids of all ages diggin' Disneyland
Rappin' on the C.B. radio in your van
We'll give a big "ten four" to the truckin' man

'Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

Young boys playin' stick ball in the street
Fire hydrants help to beat the heat
Old man feeding pigeons in the square
Nighttime finds young lovers walking there

'Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

In Atlantic City or out in Malibu
Or any where between, I'm telling you
When you feel those balmy breezes on your face
Summer time is the best time any place

'Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

I love it when you hear the intro to that song during the movie Forrest Gump.
So many songs instantly trigger a memory. That first guitar note or piano chord and it's like its yesterday.
What's any better than that.

Fantastic! Thanks for posting it.

Smile No more pencils, No more books, no more teacher's dirty looks!

The Best Summer songs of all time according to Rolling Stone

Working for a school system for the last 40 years how could I have possibly forgotten "School's Out for the Summer"????? (Alice Cooper)

Default Resurrecting this thread. It's just too good

How 'bout these
"Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Johnny Cash"?
"The Weight" by The Band
"Summer" by John Denver (Anything by him actually)

Here's a couple of recent tunes that I think are excellent Summer tunes.

"Windows are Rolled Down" by Amos Lee
"Stay a Little Longer" by Brothers Osborne

Default Pontoon

By Little Big Town

On the pontoon
Makin' waves and catchin' rays up on the roof
Jumpin' out the back, don't act like you don't want to
Party in slow motion
Out here in the open
Mm, motorboatin'

Reach your hand down into the cooler
Don't drink it if the mountains aren't blue
Try to keep it steady as you recline on your black inner tube
