Some song lyrics just take be back to long ago.
Here's one that does it for me.
"Barefoot girl sitting on the hood of a Dodge
Drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain"
From Bruce Springsteen's Jungleland. Actually Bruce has a number that qualify.

Reelin' in the Years by Steely Dan,

"Your everlasting summer and you can see it fading fast, so you grab a piece of something that you think is gonna last"

Takes me back to a couple of summers in the mid '70s.

I also like this one. No matter what you think of the artist, he's one of the good guys. A modern summertime song:

I love the sweltering southern summertime...

One of my favorites. Saw her at a festival in West Palm Beach in '68 or '69 (kinda all runs together)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfn9JfxBNPw Says it all in my opinion. Take out the drugs, booze, and fishing and that was my summer of 1972. I love that song.

Stone cold! Almost semiretired. :mrgreen:

When Johnny Winters came out and jammed with her it was great. Remember when Spirit started up?

I remember Janis, lots of mud, the Vanilla Fudge 'You Keep Me Hanging On' and a real cute girl with long red hair.

Add a girl sitting on the hood of your car and a warm, soft summer rain and it's not so bad. :wink:

Dang!!!! A lot of y'all are a lot younger........or maybe way way older than me. Most of those songs I don't remember. Maybe Iwas doing something else. :twisted:

I prefer the Louis and Ella rendition of Summertime.

I remember watching Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show in his first television appearance. :mrgreen:

I play music in my office at work. I had Iron Butterfly doing "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" playing in the background. One of my younger workers was in my office and said "Those guys are great! When are they going on tour?" "Oh, about 45 years ago!" You should have seen the look on his face.

Like Jethro Tull (Ian Anderson) sang, "Too Old to Rock-N-Roll; Too Young to Die."

Yup, I saw that on TV also. And was shooting Old Model Blackhawks when they were new!
