(43-40) Songs Of Summer

For as long as I can remember, Labor day weekend always included pop music countdowns on the radio.  I suppose I never really understood why in September, the radio would count down the greatest hits of the year; but now that I'm older I'm going to guess that it's because it's something that they can pre-record so that the DJ's can take the holiday off too.
Well, I'm DJ of this blog, and  I can assure you that this post hasn't been pre-recorded; but in honor of this Labor day weekend tradition, I've decided to share some of my all time fave songs that remind me of summer.  This is a VERY random list. Some of the songs have a summer theme, some may be tunes that were summer hits (to the best of MY recollection,) and others may not have been hits at all (big surprise - right;) but they remind me of summer memories.
As always I know it's self indulgent to share music that I like; but I do so, to provide you with a glimpse into what makes me happy, what inspires me AND to record my memories.  I hope you enjoy them.
Till next time...
