Summer Time

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

As of yesterday, it’s officially summer. Summer used to be my favorite time of the year. I’m sure most of that had to do with being on vacation from school. Summer isn’t as big of a deal now, probably because I haven’t had a summer off from everything since 1997. The thing I associate with summer the most now is the heat. Damn, it’s been hot. But still, summers working for a university in a college town are a little more laid back than the rest of the year.

I don’t have anything excited going on this summer. I didn’t renew my lease on my current place, so I’ll be moving in about a month.

In 2006, I made a Summer Mix CD. I’ve included the track list. I usually bring it out at the beginning of summer and listen to it throughout the season. It’s on my iPod now, so I’ll probably be listening to it even more than normal.

  1. “School’s Out” by Alice Cooper
  2. “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles
  3. “Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince
  4. “Whoops Now” by Janet Jackson
  5. “I Can See Clearly Now” by Johnny Nash
  6. “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves
  7. “Soak Up the Sun” by Sheryl Crow
  8. “Summer of ‘69” by Bryan Adams
  9. “Summer” by War
  10. “Summer Nights” by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John
  11. “Summertime (featuring P Diddy)” by Beyonce
  12. “Girls of Summer” by Aerosmith
  13. “Sex in the Summer” by Prince
  14. “Hot Fun in the Summertime” by Sly & the Family Stone
  15. “If You Steal My Sunshine” by Len
  16. “Cruel Summer” by Ace of Base
  17. “The Boys of Summer” by The Ataris
  18. “And On And On” by Janet Jackson

Update, 2/23
Oops! I had messed up the name of Sheryl Crow’s song. It’s corrected now.
