    It's hard to beat Summertime Blues the way the Who did played it in their heyday.


    One of my personal favorites:

    Leaving Texas
    Fourth day of July
    Sun so hot, clouds so low
    The eagles filled the sky

    War - Summer and Sly & the Family Stone - Hot Fun in the Summertime which have been posted.

    This one was on the radio during the hot Ontario summer of 1970 when I was 11. Always makes me think of summer.

    Not necessarily about summer, but I played it constantly one summer a few years back. A personal favorite.



    And another from the same album that actually is about summer and also a favorite.

    For whatever reason this is the first song that came to mind, today. Might have been that college road trip to New Orleans in 1985, or that long, long summer that followed.

    Summer In The City by Loving Spoonful. When I was in junior high and high school, hearing cover bands do that song on wood stages was unbelievable.
