Summer's Song

Spring is in the air, but you can already hear the anthems heralding the approaching deflowering coronation of Aestas; the nubile Goddess of Summer. Although her life is often torrid, it is also a mercifully short one, enabling most of us to still love her, even after she hits middle age, and her days begin to become extremely hot and sultry.
There would be no life without Summer, as all of nature greedily feeds from her ample breast. Indeed we all partake of her life giving passion, or perish. A little heat is good for the soul, the world will sorely miss her warm caress in the upcoming Ice Age.

Let's see how many Summer related songs we can come up with.
Here a just a few to start us out with. I will keep adding more as we head toward our rendezvous with the ardent lady we know so well.

Caren, here is your boy, Bon Jovi - Summer Time

These next few have been Summer standards for almost as long as I can remember.

Don Henley - The Boys of Summer.
"One of my favorites".

Thanks Jade, that is a good one!

"Night Moves"- Bob Segar

I'm posting a lot of these songs from a very limited industrial computer, here in the security office; it makes no sound at all. So no doubt from time to time, there will be a few duds for me to fix whenever I get home.
I hope this next Summer song is a good one.
The Boppers - Under the boardwalk (live)

Hahahahahahaha, and guess where that there ice age will hit first my dear?

Hmm don henleys yup is hot, but night moves is a sizzling song, the kind of song where it was soo hot during the day you have ice melting on you in seconds, and the night time hits and a light cool breeze wanders in, and that song is playing.

Sky, perhaps I should come visit your wolves before the ice and snow gets too deep up there.
