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

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)
