We’re taking a little break. While our blog is on summer hiatus, we thought we’d share with you a musical stroll down memory lane, summertime version! We’ll be back with fresh posts in August.
The Drifters ~ Under the Boardwalk
Loving Spoonful ~ Summer in the City
And if you think their sideburns are crazy, dig these!
Mungo Jerry ~ In the Summertime
Actually if I remember correctly, men of his age ALWAYS have women on their minds!
This next one would be deemed a bit sexist by today’s standards as well, but consider the context…
Summer Nights ~ from Grease
And if you’re not in the mood for summer lovin’ (what’s the matter with you?) then here’s some surfing fun! (Wait! They seem to be fixated on “two girls for every guy” too.)
Jan & Dean ~ Surf City
And probably my all time fave!
Beach Boys ~ Kokomo
Have a great July!

Most of these are on my birthday party mix for the party on Sunday. I also have “Summertime” by Jan & Dean on there. I wanted “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and “In the Good Old Summertime,” but don’t have those on CD. (I’m still old-fashioned–everything’s on CD).

😀 You obviously have good taste, Nancy! Happy Birthday!

I’ll be back … thanks especially for The Drifters song. I used to sing “Under the Boardwalk” as a lullaby to my girls, way back when. Enjoy your summer!

I love that song, probably because I spent so many summers on the boardwalks of Wildwood, NJ or Ocean City, MD. Thanks for stopping by, Eli.
