Songs about summer love?

Asked by acebamboo77 (717points) October 22nd, 2008

What are some good songs about summer love?
I don’t necessarily want romantic songs, more so songs that give the listner a nostalgic feeling.

The one song that really comes to mind is “In The Summertime” by Mungo Jerry.

I second Gershwins “Summertime”.
“Groovin” by the Young Rascals. That one is pure nostalgia for me. Brings to mind a few others from the same era, “San Francisco” by the Mamas and the Papas and “Grazin in the Grass” by ? and “San Francisco Nights” by Eric Burdon and the Animals. Excuse me, I have to take off my go-go boots, stretch out on my chenille bedspread and listen to my clock radio.

This ones for you Andrew!
a one and a two…

Summer lovin’ had me a blast
Summer lovin’, happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
I met a boy, cute as can be

Summer days driftin’ away,
To uh-oh those summer nights
Tell me more, tell me more,
Did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more,
Like, does he have a car?

She swam by me, she got a cramp
He went by me, got my suit damp
I saved her life, she nearly drowned
He showed off, splashing around
Summer sun, something’s begun,
But uh-oh those summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more,
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more,
Did she put up a fight?
Took her bowlin’ in the Arcade
We went strollin’, drank lemonade
We made out under the dock
we stayed up until ten o’clock

Summer fling don’t mean a thing,
But uh-oh those summer nights
Tell me more, tell me more,
But you don’t gotta brag
Tell me more, tell me more,
Cause he sounds like a drag

He got friendly, holdin’ my hand
Well she got friendly, down in the sand
He was sweet, just turned eighteen
Well she was good, you know what I mean

Summer heat, boy and girl meet,
But uh-oh those summer nights
Tell me more, tell me more,
How much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more,
Could she get me a friend?

It turned colder, that’s where it ends
So I told her we’d still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she’s doin’ now

Summer dreams ripped at the seams,
But oh, those summer nights

Little known fact: Summer of ‘69 is not about the year.

Summer Girls by LFO

Easily contains one of the most cringe inducing choruses of all time.

New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick
And I think its fly when girls stop by for the summer….......

Ocean Ave. – Yellowcard

acebamboo77's avatar

flameboi – i was an avid yellowcard fan before they got shitty (personal opinion – sorry to offend) forgot about that song… great choice

flameboi's avatar

@lacerbabe
Offense? None taken!
That album is one of my all time favorites, they are a great band, lights and sounds is, mmm, not as good, Ocean. Ave. brings back to me so many good memories, I thought I was the only one that actually liked the band, is good to know that I’m not :)

“Summer” by Buffalo Tom
“Summer Skin” by Death Cab

My memory has proved to be so shot that I can only think of songs that have “summer” directly in the title!
