My Favorite Summertime Songs





Remember, back in the glory years of our life? Gas was super cheap, and we would cruise around with the radio cranked up. I think the music was way better back in the day—just my opinion, of course. Remember all the great summertime songs? And some of the best summertime songs go way back. But every summer they would be played on the radio over and over again. And we never seemed to tire of them.

Even today, when I hear them, they bring back some great memories.
