Five on Friday

These five songs evoke specific summer memories. I was inspired by seeing Chad and Jeremy's "Summer Song" on Trav's playlist here. (That song reminds me of playing Scrabble at my friend Judy's house, with her bedroom windows wide open, listening to albums her older sister left behind when she moved out.)

  1. Welcome to Travis' meme - it's a great one, isn't it?

    I love your song choices and they definitely bring back specific memories for me, too! I couldn't tell you the last time I heard "Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves" but I love it! Wow but the summer of 1973 was a darned long time ago ... !

    If you stop by my blog I did a summer set this week myself but I specifically used songs that had summer somewhere in the title or lyrics; it seemed appropriate what with the calendar officially kicking off summer this week.

    Hope to see you back at the meme again next week!

  2. By the by, I just have to say, I checked out your profile and I love the Edward Gorey quote (my daughter is a major Edward Gorey fan) as well as your choice of movies! I thought "Shutter Island" was very well done and it definitely had me guessing and second-guessing all the way through; "Mary Poppins" is of course practically perfect in every way; and "The Way We Were" never fails to make me cry!

  3. Nice mix. It's been a long time since I heard "Mississippi". You really captured that time period and summer feel.

  4. Don't laugh - but I hadn't heard Day Dreamin before. And it promptly became my favorite one from your set today. Loved it!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
