Before we get started let's get this out of the way.
So there has been a lot of good basketball of late and more draft speculation than if Voodoo Magic had an electric draft speculation machine. These things have been well covered. Two things that we have been lacking here in Hoopusland are music threads and actual summer. The purpose of this thread is to create one in the hopes that it will evoke the other.
First up a few versions of the ultimate summertime song: Summertime.
Original Broadway- 1940's
Definitive Verison- Doc and Merle Watson
Oscar Peterson on Clavichird?
Ok, that might be enough of that (but probably not). The next part of our summer evoking post is to look at songs that just feel like summer. You know what I mean. Some songs just feel right for road trips, BBQ, frisbee throwing, fishing, cold beer and other summer activities.
Anything from the harder they come song track
Anything from the Beach Boys
China Cat Sunflower/ I Know You Rider
So there you have it. Some songs to hopefully give summer the boost it needs. I have to be honest, if I don't get a healthy dose of summer soon I'm going to lose my shit. I try not to be negative about things like weather but really- it's mid June for crying out loud and I had to get a hat out to work in the basement. Sorry- rant over, but I do need your help. Please take the time to post your favorite version of Gershwin's true American Anthem or any other songs that remind you of summer days, summer nights or anything summery.
