Dan... wrote: Ooh! Billy Joel's "This Is The Time"!
That song almost makes me cry! Probably because I gave it on a CD to my boyfriend right before he left the country and I wouldn't see him again for a long, long time. You get a bit sobby from such memories together with "this is the time, but time is gonna change..."

I made up a cracking summer tune this afternoon as I pootled back to the Towers with the roof down on the Bentley, chasing rabbits and grannies into fields.
It went: Dum-do-dee-do-deedo-doo. Dum-do-dee-dum-dum-do. Doo-dood-um-dee-dod-um-doo-doo-doo-doo-dee-doo-dum.
I suppose you had to be there really.
Three Lions is great!
I think the Doors - Paint it Black is good, Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever, Who - Teenage Wasteland ... there are a lot of good summer songs, it just depends on what mood you're looking for!
