Song Lyric Sunday : Summer

The very  talented  Helen at  This  Thing called  Life One Word  at a Time  told us  that : The theme for Song Lyric Sunday on June 19th is “Summer“.  Pick a song that makes you think of summer, that has the word in the title or lyrics, or pick one of your own that has nothing to do with the theme.  We’re all open to sharing and listening to new, amazing music.  Most of all, just enjoy the process.

Rules  and  pingback here 

And  here

So which  song is  most  evocative  of  summer  in my  mind ? Well  there  are  many  in fact  too numerous  to  mention. So I  closed  my eyes  and  let  my  mind  slip off to  wherever  as  I thought  of  summer. The  first  song  that  entered  my  head was  Summer  Breeze  , and it was not  the Isley  Brother’s   version  but  the  beautiful  Seals  and Croft version I  was hearing. The  song  takes  me back  to 1972  the  year  after  I  got  married. Happy  carefree days.

So  here  we are  please  enjoy!

SUMMER BREEZE

See the curtains hangin’ in the window
In the evenin’ on a Friday night
Little light is shinin’ through the window
Lets me know everything’s alright

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

See the paper layin’ on the sidewalk
A little music from the house next door
So I walked on up to the doorstep
Through the screen and across the floor

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day’s work
And you’re waiting there, not a care in the world

See the smile awaitin’ in the kitchen
Food cookin’ in the plates for two
Feel the arms that reach out to hold me
In the evening when the day is through

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

    This song FEELS like summer. I can feel it, I can smell it and I can hear it. I think that’s what great music does. Thanks Willow!

    I remember that song! For me it’s Summer in the CIty by the Lovin’ Spoonful.

    Beautiful song! I’ve always heard pieces of this version while growing up in the 80s.
