Late to the party but I CAN tell you that in 1954, Mickey Meese and I went to the Circle Theater in Indianapolis, and watched Stan Getz play .. along with the Stan Kenton Orchestra.



NAILED it, AG. All three of those, but especially America.

Thanks for playing, everybody!


Hey Miss Raz! Great to see you around here. And reggae is kind of a summer default, isnt it? LOVE.


Anything by the Doobie Brothers. Or America. Or the Eagles Desperado album.


I have a summer playlist on my iPod, but it tends to be bands I have seen play at festivals: they make ME think of summer but they make my boyfriend question me. Are these summer songs? Well, yes, because they remind me of sunshine and happiness.

I agree with 'Summertime' by Will Smith, along with a good dash of Bob Marley.




@Sher, I kinda stole it too... but gave it a different twist. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? (Right???)


just so you know, my shout out to you will be tomorrow on my blog, where i shamelessly steal this idea :-)


I was inspired by your post so I wrote my own. I almost stuck September on my list but decided to keep it at ten. I love that song!! And I so remember the Bust a Move days. Haha.

It's hotternhell here too! Love your list.


Oh good picks! I would add "Summertime" by Will Smith, "Summertime" by Sublime, "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley (the original, not the remake), and - don't laugh - "Gin & Juice" by Snoop Dogg. Seriously. I love him.

But to balance that out, please know that I have an entire album of Jobim on my iPod. I'm versatile like that.

There are also a bunch of rock hits from the late '70s and early '80s that were on the jukebox at my town swimming pool, that never got rotated off - Rock Lobster, Life's been Good, Baker Street - I intend one day to make a playlist and circulate it to my pool pals from back in the day.


this could take awhile for me...
