Summer Soundtracks and Classics

Aaah…the sun is high in the sky, the days are long and lazy and you just want to kick back…relax, poolside, beachside or hanging in a hammock under a tree with a cool, refreshing drink in your hand.


What would make this day even better…listening to your favorite old school summer songs and on this Wayback Wednesday we are going to listen to some of the summer soundtracks of the 60s and 70s.

    You certainly bought back lots of memories with those songs. I remember one in particular Louie Louie, I cannot remember the name of the band and also Brandy. Those remind me of summer when I was little. But there are so many others. It never ends.

      Oh, I remember Louie Louie and had to look it up, it was by the Kingsman and if you are talking about Brandy by Barry Manilow, I love the song as well.

Please leave a comment - I'd love to know what you think!
