SONGS THAT REMIND ME OF SUMMER

This one reminds me more of fall. It did come out in the summer, but it was coming out of every radio in Austin the first semester of my senior year in college.

Here are some of mine...
Bob Dylan "Like A Rolling Stone" (Summer'65)
The Tymes "So In Love (Are We Too)" (1963?)

And several songs with summer in the title:

Nat Ling Cole "Lazy Crazy Days Of Summer' &
"That Sunday, That Summer"
Frank Sinatra "The Summer Wind"
Li'l Rob "Summer Nights"

And Monica Mancini's version of her father Hanks's "Slow Hot Wind" (well worth listening to on You Tube, it's exquisite)

What Bill said. This was a "back to school" hit.

Yes, most definitely a summer song for me!

It was the band's first nationally-released single and their first number one hit, reaching the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on September 15, 1962. It remained at number one for five consecutive weeks.

Ergo, not summer.

I was fourteen. I climbed up the stairs to the boardwalk in OC NJ and it was blaring. It may have been the next summerc
