1. Summer Breeze--Seals & Crofts <--- as seen in the new Summer Gap commercials
2. Here Comes the Sun--The Beatles
3. Summer in the City--Lovin Spoonful

Man, No Rain is the perfect Seattle song. During the winter it rained every day for about three months, and I got really moody/sleepy/whiny so I had to pop in that song every once in a while:

I don't understand why I sleep all day,
And I start to complain when there's no rain.

By Digmedia (Digmedia) on Wednesday, June 02, 2004 - 12:27 am: Edit

from a gazillion-year-old parent:

Summertime Blues:

Well I went to my congressman
And he said, quote:
"I'd like to help you son,
But you're too young to vote."
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a'gonna do
Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues.


But even as old as I am, I think Nelly is one talented man!

By Musefinity (Musefinity) on Thursday, June 03, 2004 - 11:19 am: Edit

Nelly is one...shame to the state of Missouri.

I like Summer of 69 by Bryon Adams - I love that song! Summer Girls by LFO is cool as well

American Pie (Don Mclean)

A long, long time ago... I can still remember how
That music used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance,
That I could make those people dance,
And maybe they'd be happy for a while.

But February made me shiver,
With every paper I'd deliver,
Bad news on the doorstep...
I couldn't take one more step.

I can't remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside,
The day the music died.

Soo..Bye, bye miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And good ol' boys were drinking whisky and rye?
Singing this will be the day that I die
this will be the day that I die

Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so
Do you believe in rock n roll
Can music save your mortal soul
Then you can teach me to dance real slow

Well I know that you're in love with him
'Cause I saw you dancing in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Then I dig those rhythm and blues

I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
but I knew that I was out of luck
The day the music died

I started singin'...

Bye, bye miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And good ol' boys were drinking whisky and rye?
Singing this will be the day that I die
this will be the day that I die

Now for 10 years we've been on our own
And moss grows fat on a rolling stone
But that's not how it used to be

When the jester sang for the king and queen
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
In a voice that came from you and me

And while the King was looking down
The jester stole his thorny crown
The courtroom was adjourned
No verdict was returned

While Lennon read the book of Marx
The quartet kept practice in the park
And we sang dirges in the dark
The day the music died

We were singin'

Bye, bye miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And good ol' boys were drinking whisky and rye?
Singing this will be the day that I die
this will be the day that I die

Helter Skelter in a summer swelter
The birds flew off with the fallout shelter
Eight miles high and falling fast

It landed foul on the grass
The players tried for a forward pass
With the jester on the sidelines in a cast

Now the halftime air was sweet perfume
While sergeants played a marching tune
We all got up to dance
Oh, but we never got the chance

'Cause the players tried to take the field,
The marching band refused to yield.

Do you recall what was revealed,
The day the music died?
We started singing

Bye, bye miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And good ol' boys were drinking whisky and rye?
Singing this will be the day that I die
this will be the day that I die

There we were all in one place
A generation lost in space With no time left to start again
So come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack Flash sat on a candle stick
'Cause fire is the devil's only friend.

As I watched him on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in hell
Could break that satan's spell

And as flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw satan laughing with delight
the day the music died.

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away

I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play

And in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken

And the three men I admire most
The Father Son and Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died

They were singin'

Bye, bye miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And good ol' boys were drinking whisky and rye?
Singing this will be the day that I die
this will be the day that I die



Pulling Mussels from the shell (Squeeze)

They do it down on camber sands
They do it at Waikiki
Lazing about the beach all day,
At night the crickets creepy
Squinting faces at the sky
A Harold Robbins paperback
Surfers drop their boards and dry
And everybody wants a hat
But behind the Chalet
My holiday's complete
And I feel like William Tell
Maid Marian on her tiptoed feet
Pulling mussels from a shell

Shrinking in the sea so cold
Topless ladies look away
A he-man in a sudden shower
Shelters from the rain
You wish you had a motor boat
To pose around the harbour bar
And when the sun goes off to bed
You hook it up behind the car

Two fat ladies window shop
Something for the mantelpiece
In for bingo all the nines
A panda for sweet little niece
The coach drivers stand about
Looking at a local map
About the boy he's gone away
Down to next door's caravan

The Saga Begins
Weird Al Yankovic

A long long time ago
In a galaxy far away
Naboo was under an attack
And I thought me and Qui-Gon Jin
Could talk the federation into
Maybe cutting them a little slack
But their response it didn't thrill us
They locked the doors and tried to kill us
We escaped from that gas
Then met Jar Jar and Boss Nass
We took a bongo from the scene
And we went to Theed to see the queen
We all wound up on Tatooine
Thats where we found this boy

Chorus:
Oh my my that here Anikin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Saying "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

Did you know this junkyard slave
Isn't even old enough to shave
But he can use the force they say
Ahh, do you see him hitting on the queen
Though he's just nine and she's fourteen
Yeah he's probably gonna marry her someday
Well i know he built C-3PO
And I've heard how fast his pod can go
But we were broke, it's true
So we made a wager or two
He was a prepubescent flyin ace
And the minute Jabba started off that race
Well I knew who would win first place
Oh yes, it was our boy

We started singin'.....

Repeat Chorus

Now we finally got to Coruscant
The Jedi council we knew would want
To see how good the boy could be
So we took him there and we told the tale
How his midi-Chlorians were off the scale
And he might fulfill their prophecy
Oh, the council was impressed, of course
Could he bring balance to the force?
They interviewed the kid
Oh, training they forbid
Because Yoda sensed in him much fear
And Qui-Gojn said,"Now listen here
Just stick it in you're pointy ear
I still will teach this boy"

He was singin'.....

Repeat Chorus

We caught a ride back to Naboo
Cause Queen Amadala wanted to
I frankly would've liked to stay
We all fought in that epic war
And it wasn't long at all before
Little hotshot flew his plane and saved the day
And in the end some Gungans died
Some ships blew up and some pilots fried
A lot of folks were croakin'
The battle droids were broken
And the Jedi I admire most
Met up with Darth Maul and now he's toast
Well, I'm still here and he's a ghost
I guess I'll train this boy

And I was singin'...

Repeat Chorus

We were singin'....

Repeat Chorus

Eh, The Ataris' cover of Boys of Summer blows.

ARTIST: John Sebastian
TITLE: Summer in the City
Lyrics and Chords


[Capo 3]

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin' dirty-'n'-gritty
Bend down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people lookin' half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match-head

/ Am - Am7 - / D9 - Fmaj7 E / : / E - E7 - / Am - A - /

{Refrain}
But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on and dance all night
Despite the heat, it'll be all right
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the nights
In the summer in the city
In the summer in the city

/ D - G - / / / / Bm - E - / / / /

Cool town, evening in the city
Dressed so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
'Til I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Runnin' upstairs, gonna meet you on the roof top

{Refrain}

{Repeat first verse}

{Refrain}

A Summer Song - Chad & Jeremy
(Rushmore soundtrack)

By Over30 (Over30) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 06:14 pm: Edit

Yes, I'm older than dirt. I have fond memories of this song from the summer my boyfriend went on harvest (in Oklahoma the "real men" of HS went all over the state and into Kansas for about 6 weeks harvesting crops. It got them in shape for football and paid well!). A lot of people have recorded this song, but I remember the Bobby Vinton and the Gary Lewis and the Playboys versions.

Sealed With a Kiss

'Tho we gotta say goodbye for the summer
Darling I promise you this
I'll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss
Guess it's gonna be a cold lonely summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss
I'll see you in the sunlight
I'll hear your voice everywhere
I'll run to tenderly hold you
But darling you won't be there
I don't wanna say goodbye for the summer
Knowing the love we'll miss
Oh let us make a pledge to meet in September
And seal it with a kiss
Guess it's gonna be a cold lonely summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss
Sealed with a kiss
Sealed with a kiss
