I don't have much to say, except that the boys are starting exams, the grass is green, the pool is open, the coals are burning in the grill!
Here's a little list of songs that may take you back to previous summers, as they do for me. What could be better than the Monkees and Husker Du, or a little redone Graham Parson classic, or a Trey Anastasio-fueled trip to the Misty Mountain Hop, a gin and juice sipped in the suburbs?
While all of the songs are "old school," I tried to freshen the list a little with newer covers of classic songs or alternate versions. Just plug your computer into some speakers, press play, and let 'er rip. Enjoy!
