Summertime, Summertime

Summer actually started for us East Bay Area folks last week when we had temperatures that rivaled the inferno of Satan’s butthole. But it’s officially the First Day of Summer today, so how ’bout some R&B summer-themed songs to kick off the season!

If it wasn’t for my enduring love for those old-school Wild 94.9 mixes (which is where I first heard this song from), I would’ve never discovered this still-fresh track!

You remember dancing to this now 30-year-old song as a kid? Congrats–you’re an old like me!

Though “summer” is not mentioned anywhere in the song, this jam is forever part of my Summer 1996 soundtrack. What a time to be a pre-teen. Although I sometimes wish I was a young adult living it up then. (Ugh, those lucky Gen-Xers!)
