Songs of Summer

It’s June 1st, which means the best month of the year has begun. There are two reasons June is the ultimate month: 1. the world received the gift of me in the month of June and 2. It marks the official start to summer.

No matter how old we get, summer will always be a special time because it brings us back to the most magnificent time in our lives – summer vacation. Nothing else in life will ever top the feeling of freedom that comes with the last day of school.

Summer vacation is over for us big kids now, but let’s bring it back to the good times when vacation was a 2-month solid block and summer jobs were for people who had driver’s licenses and something to buy besides Pogs and J-14 Magazine.

Here are some of the songs of those summers:
