Summer Nights

The long weekend in May kicks off the summer season and I don’t know about you, but I am more ready for summer than I’ve ever been. It’s time for flip flops, sundresses, barbecues, pool parties, sangria and summer music.

There is lots of music that define the summer season and I’ve put a few here before on the song of the day like, Love is Like a Heatwave, Boys of Summer, Sunny Days, or Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.

You can find my Pinterest board with all the Songs of Summer here.

In the meantime, I’m adding Summer Nights from Grease to the playlist. Who knows all the words? I do 🙂

Boys of Summer

It’s hard to believe that I was 14 when this song first came out. *Gulp* Listening to it makes me feel old and young all at the same time.

I am impressed that to this day, the video still does not look dated. The song never got old either. Well done Don Henley, well done.

Dani California

I am just completely rocking out to the Red Hot Chili Peppers this morning. This band just screams summer to me. The loud music, the lyrics, the utter rockstar coolness of Anthony Kiedis and the ummm, total rockstar weirdness of Flea make this one of my favorite bands of all time. Check out a younger, fluffier Flea in this song of the day.

Soak Up the Sun

Today I woke up with the birds. For real. The weather has been so grey and miserable here lately, I barely noticed that the sun was fully up by 6:00am now. Suprisingly, I’m ok with getting up so early. These long days are here for too short a time and I want to be sure to take advantage of every glorious, sunny day we get. So I could be Walking on Sunshine, or proclaiming it a Beautiful Day, or shouting that The Sun is Shining, but today I want to just Soak Up The Sun.
