30 Day Song Challenge: Day 3 – A Song That Reminds You Of Summer

Day 3 of this challenge invites us to post a song that reminds us of summer.  Perhaps this is a bit on the nose, but I’ve loved this song since I was a kid, and it would go on any “pick me up” playlist.  Here’s The Loving Spoonful, with “Summer In The City.

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 4 – A Song That Reminds You Of Someone You’d Rather Forget


  1. Rob Wynne

    And, for those who’d like to play along.

  2. Jim Poltrone

    Sly & the Family Stone, “Hot Fun In The Summertime”

  3. Jennifer Diamond

    Summer’s not mentioned in the title, but it’s there… “Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson:

  4. Elaine Roberson

    Summer Nights from Grease

  5. Bruce Adelsohn

    Still not sure about completing the challenge, but now have the calendar. Speaking of calendars…

  6. David Weingart

    There’s no summer mentioned but I associate this song with the beach and my best friend as a kid and this on his mom’s radio.

  7. T J Burnside Clapp

    This one, forever. It was my favorite song when I was 5, and on our summer family camping trip it was always on the radio. On the way home we stopped for dinner at a diner and the jukebox was broken -- it would play forever on a single quarter. My older brothers played “Red Rubber Ball” for me about 20 times. I was so happy! <3

  8. Lydia Murphy Silver

    I actually had to sit and think for a while on this, then I realized it had to be this song that always called me back to summer.. with lyrics that mean different things at different ages.

      One of my favourite Monkees songs. 🙂

      I really think Nesmith was one of those young writers who was wise beyond his years.

      He was, though that song wasn’t written by Nez. It was by Chip Douglas and Bill Martin. Douglas also wrote “Forget That Girl”, and was the producer (and sometimes bass player) on three Monkees albums: “Headquarters”, “Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, and Jones Ltd.”, and “The Birds, The Bees and the Monkees”.
