Five on Friday - The Summer Version

Driving home from my 16-hour dispatch shift last night I was kicking around ideas for songs that might be good for this week's addition of Travis' Five on Friday meme when the word 'summer' popped into my head.  With this week being the first official week of summer it seemed like the perfect choice for a set of songs - particularly after the 90 degree heat and humidity that had blanketed Connecticut on Thursday.

Without further ado I give you five of my favorite songs of summer and suggest that if you like to listen to different types of music that you check out Trav's Thoughts - the home of Five on Friday and links to those who are playing along in this fun Friday meme that gives you the chance to share some of your favorite music with others.  Perhaps you'd like to join us one of these Fridays and share some of your favorite music, too?

  1. Out of this list, I'd pick Summer Breeze. I'm a sucker for great harmony...I'm not participating but I'd have to have "Summer Time Blues,"
    I'm that old, you know!

  2. When I think of summer songs the first one that pooped into my head was Summer Nights from Grease.

    My favorite summer songs are tropical, calypso, reggae or rastafarian... like the Beach Boys's Kokomo, or anything Bob Marley and steel drums!

    Summer just started you say? Ya can't prove that by me!

    Big hugs xo

  3. pooped into my head? hahaha. Obviously I meant popped. And is rastafarian an actual word. I must be, right? I have no idea.

  5. Boys of Summer may just be one of my all time favorite songs. This set just makes you want to hit the lounge chair with something tall and cool in your hand, shaded from the sun and a good book. May just go do that. Thanks for the soundtrack.

  8. I'd forgotten that Richard Marx song! It's a perfect Top 40 summer inclusion.

  9. Cruel Summer and Summer in the City are my favorites from your set this week, Linda - great idea for a theme.

    Just catching up on your daughter's graduation, your meet-up with your blog friend and all those great photos from your trip. And a lovely photo of you and your graduate, might I add!

  11. Don Henley has always been one of my favorites. Great choices here.

    I've promised Travis forever that I would do this meme. Maybe next week...
