Favourite Songs about Summer?

Now that winter's officially begun . . . I can think of a few but here's a Canadian one. This was performed in a park just down the street from me:

I lived in Toronto in the late sixties and I Loved it for the never ending free summer concerts of which lighthouse was often included. Great band.
As for summer songs and since pop was a Gershwin fan amoung others.
George Gershwins "Summertime" brings to my mind the dog days of summer sitting out in the soft evening breeze just feeling all was right with the world.
Ten Years After also did a version of Summertime which was a favourite and still is (it's a drummer thing). Even though it sounded nothing like Gershwins they gave credit to him on the album. George Gershwins "Summertime" (it ain't no tele thing). Just the first summertime song that came to mind. lol.

I Always loved Eva Cassidy's version of Summertime may she RIP.



Check out her "Fields of Gold" knowing she knew she was dying when she wrote it makes it take on a whole new meaning. Another good one gone way too soon.

"Boys of Summer" is more about fall closing in, IMO

"Summer Breeze" is a real nice one, also
"All Summer Long"-Beach Boys

It would have to be this one. From the summer just after I turned 16. Can't listen to it without a smile on my face.

Fountains of Wayne "It Must Be Summer". Love the melancholy lyrics against the sunny melody and arrangement.

Great pick. Mine is "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)" by Bruce Springsteen.
