Summer, though not my favorite season, is as much a state of mind as it is a climate change. It is hot temperatures, backyard fun, margaritas, trips to the beach, long days, and walks after dinner. It is sundresses and sandals, bubbles and barbecues. It is also a great time for music.
Blasting from car radios or live performances at an outdoor concert, the sounds of summer are as catching as the ice cream man's truck intends them to be. Each year a new song vies to be the summer song, with this year's overwhelming choice seeming to be the curious, "I Kissed A Girl" by Katy Perry. However, there are always the standard summer hits, and though I realize a lot were not included on the list, I threw in the obvious ones, as well as my own favorites.
