Summer, summer, summertime
That pretty much says it all, don't it? Well, I guess it's "officially summer," since it's memorial day weekend and we all know seasons don't change due to, like, equinoxes or whatever. They are "official" when we celebrate war or president or whatever by buying things and having 3 day weekends! At least that's what the guys on the radio keep telling me.
ANYWAYZ, since it's summer now, I guess it's time to start thinking about my favorite kind of jams. Summer Jams. Let's listen now.
1. The Troggs, "Love is all Around"
I guess this is kinda more of a spring jam. The video for it is such a relic from the semi-psychedelic mid late 60s (flowers painted on a girl's face! everything is covered in tinfoil! Is your mind BLOWN yet or what?!!!!).
2. C-Side w/ Keyshia Cole, "Boyfriend/Girlfriend"
This song has been out for a while but it's the perfect summer jam. Cute, danceable, and catchy as hell. Also, there's a reference to myspace, and one's girlfriend being "#1 on my top 8," which is fucking hilarious and pretty much lays bare that this song was made with 15 year olds in mind.
Well, that's all I've got for right now. More to come, as summer unravels.
