A Summer Song

Here in the northern hemisphere, summer leaves us on Sunday.  That doesn't make me burst into song, but rather, makes me a little wistful.

When I need some inspiration, I turn to music.

Time for some summer music to say goodbye to.

My all time summer song was a long time ago hit for the English duo Chad and Jeremy, and it's an excellent way to say "goodbye"

How bittersweet.

Summer has been the favorite topic of songwriters for many years.  Here are some other summertime favorites, as we get ready to say goodbye to August:

Summertime - a George Gershwin classic.
Summertime - 1958, the Jamies.
Summer in the City - The Lovin' Spoonful.
"Summertime Blues".

"Hot Fun in the Summertime".
 And finally,what summer would be complete without at least once listening to Mungo Jerry's "In the Summertime"?

Do you have a favorite summertime song?
