Summertime Tunes.

There is no arguing, it’s summertime. For those that don’t agree, go stand outside for ten minutes in a sweatshirt. Okay, that’s a bad idea, don’t do that… just take my word for it.

Summer is a period of time that people long for. Summer means no school, vacations, relaxation, and many hours of pool time. With the importance summer brings, it holds its own genre of music. There are many songs that are synonymous with the season. As I take refuge from the heat, I thought I would share a few songs that remind me that it’s “summertime and the livin’ is easy.” (Can you name that song?)

“School’s Out” by Alice Cooper

This rock song captures the excitement of a grade school child with the last day of school and combines it with the epic talent of Alice Cooper.

“Under The Boardwalk” by The Drifters

I’m pretty sure I have never been any near the underneath of a boardwalk. But this song has you tapping your toes and fills your head with thoughts of frolicking on the beach. Okay, maybe your not a “frolicker”. It still makes you yearn for sand between your toes.

“A Hard Day’s Night” by The Beatles

As a Beatles fan, I had to add this one. This tune reminds us working class folks to take a little time to have some fun.

What’s your favorite summertime anthem?

    True Story. On the last day of high school we rounded up a bum that we called Cooper who looked like Alice Cooper and worshipped Alice Cooper albums (I’ve got the pretties for you, he would say). We took him to the liquor store to get us some stuff, and we played this song all the way there while Cooper sang along. Weird, I know! SCHOOL IS OUT!
