    Fabulous tunes everyone! Today was the hottest day of the year... really felt like summer. We were riding and i had a few songs playing in my head

    Here's a tune by a band that may not be known outside of Toronto. When it came out in 1980, I couldn't get enough of it!

    Good tune Judy and you're right I have never heard it before. It kind of reminds me of Missing Persons from the 1980's. Missing Persons perform Words Walking In L A - YouTube

    I've always been partial to that "Walk With an Erection" song, by The Bangles. Seeing the young lasses walking through town in their skimpy summer clothing can do that to a fella.


    edit: I've just been informed the song is actually called "Walk Like an Egyptian", so please disregard the above. My apologies.

    Actually yes the,Bangles sang "Walk Like An Egyptian" and yes the lead singer was absolutely beautiful. But there was a spoof on that song called "Walk With An Erection". In the ninties San Diego radio station 91X played it all the time Here ya go, be sure to click on the yellow box on the left.

    Hard to choose. For me, itís either 2112 or Hemispheres by Rush. Has been that way for 33 summers in a row.

    We spent a summer in Aurora , CO. way back in 1976 after my StepFather died of cancer.
    We were with his Brother and family.
    Every day we'd listen to Fleetwood Mac 'Rumors' and everyday the Lightning would start up in the afternoon and be gone before dark. We'd get chairs out in the back lawn and watch. I was 10, learned to ride a huge Schwinn 10 speed that summer.
    Maybe it's not a " Summertime" song so much. But I sure get alot of Memories from that summer when I heard a song from it.

    This is a real cool list, and the first thing that comes up when you google summer songs:

    The 50 best summer songs: Hit the beach with these summertime tunes

    Among the highlights:

    Sly and the Family Stone
    Summertime by Gershwin from Porgy and Bess
    Anything by Billy Idol

    Not on the list, but I agree that almost anything from the Go-Go's is a great summer song.
