Great list. I'd have to say my favorite would be #2 and then #3. Have a great weekend.

I love 'Summer of'69'! Ah, Bryan Adams. You rule!

Joanne said...

Definitely a few rock anthems in your list! A great celebration of summer :)

Mason - I'm a huge Parrothead, but I couldn't pass up Alice Cooper.

Talli - I like him, too.

Joanne - Rock my world :)

I alway's liked Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City"--- reminds me of the summer of 1966 when my family moved to Tennessee.

Then there was the hokey "In The Summertime" by Mongo Jerry-- kind of a catchy tune.

"Summer Breeze" by Seals and Crofts is one that I still enjoy hearing.

Oh, those brought back memories. I need to look for each one and put them on my iPhone. You've got me singing now.

Of course School's Out!
I'd add Y&T's Summertime Girls. Great video.

I love Summer of 69. It makes me feel happy and melancholy at the same time! (And I wasn't even born yet in 69) Guess I missed a real great summer!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Ah summer. It's not here yet on the west coast. Soon, I hope, very soon. Great list!

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

These titles bring back some fun memories - great song list!

Carol Kilgore said...

Arlee - Those are good, too.

Helen - Cool!

Alex - OK - another one to add.

Aubrie - All summers are good :)

Elspeth - I hope it arrives soon for you. Been here for a month.

Jane - Glad you like them.

Can't go past Alice Cooper but I love Don't Worry, Be Happy as well. Great list.

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

Great songs! Made me remember a lot of good times. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Cassandra - Thanks!

Kathi - Me, too :)

Laura Eno said...

Great songs all, but #6 Summer in the City brings back special memories! Thanks for the reminders!

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm glad one was special for you.

Your #1 song was recently featured on the closing show for American Idol as I'm sure you know. Wow, Alice Cooper still looks & rocks!

I think Margaritaville is another great song, no matter what time of year. Same for Summertime Blues -- it's so lively.

Carol Kilgore said...

notesfromnadir - Oh yeah ... all the way around.

Kimberly - My pleasure :)
