The Songfactor's Choice Special: Summer Songs

Recommended Posts

That's what I get for not checking the site often enough; I didn't know there was a special this week. Here are my three noms:

Summertime's Calling Me - Catalinas (1975)

Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits (1978)

A Beautiful Morning - The Rascals (1968)

With that last nomination, every time I hear it, I think of driving down the road on a warm summer day with the top down.

There she is, hey ps.

So good you're fine and back... :)

There has been some confusion over the years just how fine I am, but I can see. ;) And I'm back. I did zero computing for over a week. Very weird, but I haven't hardly been off the thing all day today. :D

I'm changing one of my nominations, if that's alright.

Cruel Summer is out, Sultans of Swing is in. Why Sultans of Swing? Babe Ruth's nickname was the Sultan of Swing, and he played baseball. Baseball is primarily played in the summer.

Babe's nickname was The Sultan Of Swat. Sorry PS...gonna have to fine your after all.

LOL! I had a brain fart, there. Either way, I've always associated that song with baseball, even though it has nothing to with sports. Same with Boys of Summer by Don Henley, and that has nothing to with baseball either.

It's close enough to count. :-P
