Days of Summer


Wednesday 9th October 2013.

My little piece of the last and dying part of my summer. My porch and rocking chair is on the verge of being made redundant for the next few months. Enjoy these wonderful songs of differing sounds and era. As an Englishman it is a little bit disappointing that I could not find any British artist to fulfill my want for this post. Hope you enjoy my selection, I love them all.

  1. These are all great for me with summer just around the corner. When I think of British songs about summer, there’s only one name comes to mind. Cliff.

    • We do have some great talent, but for Summer feeling not a lot,, Cliff is one and the Mungo Jerry song, which is a little boring and over played,, but as I said to another comment I might try and do a Summer one with just British.. and Cliff will be one. 😉 welcome.
