EIGHT ESSENTIAL SUMMER SONGS: My Personal Favorites

 

 

These are songs that I have always enjoyed this time of year – and still do, many of them going back to my childhood.

The ones from the 1970s in particular continue to bring a smile to my face and likely always will, being that they were the summer hits when I was single digit age, hence providing some very good memories of that time.

Speaking of time, I won’t waste anymore of it;
