A New Bloghop: Songs of Summer

Ah, summer.  Sunny mornings full of possibility, lazy poolside afternoons and rockin' nights lit by tiki torches.  What songs bring back the sunscreen and beach-sand to you?  What songs defined your one perfect summer, be it decades ago or just getting started with today's solstice?

Welcome to the Songs of Summer bloghop, hosted by the Armchair Squid, Cygnus and Suze.  On Friday, July 11, 2014, please join us by posting 5 of your favorite summer songs and sharing some memories about them.  Maybe between us, we can build the perfect soundtrack to accompany us over the next few months.  If possible, include links so we can hear these gems.  And, if you're in the southern hemisphere, join us to dance those winter blues away!

Please sign up to the link list here, then post on July 11.

    2. Just popped over to see who'd signed up and after I finished reading the participant list, I nodded and said, 'It's gonna be a good blog fest.'

  4. The bloghop is growing! I've got something like 6 or 7 songs in my list so far, with only 2 as definites. I'll keep thinking... :-)

  7. Sounds like fun! Although we're in the midst of an Aussie winter over here, I think I can find some inspiration for a summer song selection ... somewhere. Wow, that's a lotta S action! :)

    1. I do have a song I associate with the one December I spent in the southern hemisphere but I've already used it for a different post.

  9. Sure -- I saw this over at Suze's blog, and while I'm not much for blog-hops these days due to my limited free time, I'll give this one a go. It sounds like fun!

  12. I just saw this over at Trisha's blog, and even though it's tomorrow, I had to join. I'm sort of new here, but I'm all about "embracing the inner geek", music, and summer. So I had to. :)
