18 Songs Of Summer … Literally

songs of summerSounds like one of those K-Tel compilation albums, doesn’t it?! Bit of a throwaway list this one, but there were a couple of songs that I found when looking for songs with “summer” in the title that I hadn’t heard for a while and was pleased to rediscover. It’s hard to beat Mungo Jerry (and, more importantly, those sidies!), the Who’s version of Summertime Blues, and Sublime’s Summertime as my top songs of summer! There are loads more, but these are songs that I actually think are pretty decent – even if there’s a fair bit of cheesiness involved in quite a few of them. Any more good ones you can think of that you’d like to share?
