Last week, the theme was "summer" and of course after I posted a few summer songs, I thought of a few more that I should have included. And to keep the list a bit shorter, I'm limiting this to songs with summer in the title. Perhaps I'll keep the summer theme going throughout the summer on the free days.
Here they are:
Y & T - Summertime Girls
Oh, how I loved this song! Y & T came about during the hair band era, though I'm not sure if they ever had a real hit. But this song? I *LOVED* it.
Van Halen - Summer Nights
Okay, I know to you music elitists this is Van Hagar, but I'm not being too picky here, since I (will now in my adulthood admit) that I liked Van Hagar, too. Sure, it didn't have that signature Van Halen sound, but they were good, too. And the line "Summer nights and my radio (Ah-ah) Well that's all we need, baby. Don'tcha know?" summed up my every summer. Even now. Because there is nothing better than hot summer nights and a radio, except maybe hot summer nights, an Mp3 player, and a cold beer.
Queens of the Stone Age - Feel Good Hit of the Summer
Well.....I can't make them ALL hair band songs.
From the "Grease" motion picture soundtrack - Summer Nights
One of my very favorite musicals.
T. Rex - Summertime Blues
This song has been covered many, many times by many, many artists. While I am partial to the Eddie Cochran original, this is my favorite, and one of the lesser-known covers.
My Chemical Romance - Summertime
This is one of my favorite bands, and I kind of had to smack myself for somehow not including them in my first summer list.
Be sure to head over to XMas Dolly's to see what everyone else posted this week and/or to play along :)
