V-A-C-T-I-O-N in the SUMMER TIME. What is you favorite Summer song?

Have you ever noticed that television news casts throw in a fluff piece near the end of the program? Is it because there isn’t enough bad news to fill the time slot or is it they are making an attempt to balance the ugliness of the reports with a bit of light heartedness? Last night one of the local ABC network stations took it to the beach and asked the question, ‘what is your favorite summer song?’ Most of the songs were familiar with the exception of a couple contemporary titles by artist Katie Perry and the like. The timing of that human interest piece couldn’t have been better for the photo I planned to post today for our 365 Challenge.

So sit back and think ‘back to the day’ of your favorite SUMMER TIME song, then post it here! We can create our own SUMMER TIME memories plus get those songs looping around in our mind until we go mad 😉 While you are at it take a guess at what my song is!

Oh, by the way this little dude was having so much fun with his Boogie Board catching waves on the way out instead of in towards the shore, he turned to his parents and said, “Mom watch this!” and on the next wave he caught some air! OMG he didn’t expect this to be the outcome but he took it all in stride and was back to boogieing in a flash.

  1. Fantastic shot!! He looks like a little surfer dude too. My favourite song it 3 Little Birds by Bob Marley!! Heard it all over Mexico last year on our very first tropical vacation and it will always bring those wonderful and warm memories back to me!!

  2. “Those Lazy, Hazy, Days of Summer” by Nat King Cole would be my second choice since Ron took my all time favorite “Summertime” from Porgie and Bess. Oh . . . your summertime fun photo in fabulous.

  3. “Summertime, summertime, sum-sum summertime” (forgot who sang it).

    Also, “Summertime Blues.”

    Seems like most of the Beach Boys’ songs were summer oriented.

  4. It’s Summertime, by The Flaming Lips.

    “It’s summertime – and I can understand if you
    Still feel – sad –
    It’s summertime and though it’s hard to see its true
    possibilities –

    When you look inside – all you’ll see
    When you look inside – all you’ll see
    Is a self-reflected inner sadness –
    Look outside – I know that you’ll
    Recognize it’s summertime
    Look outside – I know that you’ll
    Recognize it’s summertime”

    I like your star burst off of the board. Gives the feel of action.

    • now this is a tune I’m not familiar with, does Lawrence Welk do this one!
      glad you got the kaboom effect – got the idea from a pse tutorial.

  5. Very cool shot and the effect makes it more so.
    Martha and the Vandellas for me ( I was of course an infant )
    Heat Wave!
