    It might be a wee bit late to be asking, but I'm wondering if there's a single album (yeah, album or CD) that just says summer whenever you play it?

    For me it's Paul McCartney's "Ram." Probably because it was released during the summer way back when.

    Whenever I hear it, I think of warm sands (my hometown has several beaches), the smell of tanning lotion and ice cream sandwiches from the snack bar.

    Not sure yet of an entire album/or CD, but the 1st song that comes to mind is "Boys of Summer" by Don Hendley. Besides for obvious reasons, the music & tone remind me of lazy, yet carefee days during the summer months which is probably why I moved to FL - LOL. The video was hot too.

    I'm just going to copy and paste my ramblings from another thread:


    OMG, I recently re-discovered The Cardigans. I think their album Long Before Daylight is my favorite album that I've downloaded this year, even though it came out in 2003.

    Grey's Anatomy used their song Live And Learn:

    Dinosaur Jr.'s "Beyond". This album didn't leave my cars CD player the summer it came out.

    Any of the Pixies albums, but especially "Surfer Rosa", because they tend to make me think of water.

    And the Breeders "Last Splash" is always fun summer music since it uses a lot of surfer beats and guitars with reverb.

    The Racontuers album "Consolers of the Lonely" has been the album most played this summer for me.


    One of my favorites in the last few years

    For those lazy, peaceful days, the summer album this year is Tracey Thorn's 'Love and it's Opposite.

    Showing off more of the trashy guilty pleasure side of my music taste, this album just screams summer to me. Definitely was in heavy rotation when I was in L.A. last summer...

    This song definitely has a summer-feel to it. It's one of those you can't help but lip sync to. icon_lol.gif
