Ah, it’s summer time. It’s time for swimsuits, beach chairs and sitting in the sand with your feet just touching the cool water. Who cares if the ocasional wave soaks your copy of People magazine? This is what you’ve been waiting for all year long. Everything is so close to being perfect; there’s just one little thing missing.
Perfect summer days need the perfect summer song. A tune you can whistle while you pack the towels and sun-screen. Something you can hum while you fill the tank with gas. You know the type: catchy, upbeat, and fun. And everyone, even the cranky dude stuck behind you in traffic, knows it.
Well, here’s that song. Just in time to make everything grand. Listen to it a few times (once should be enough to get the melody, but you can download it and listen as much as you please) and then send the link to your pals [hint hint], so they can listen and pass the link to their pals. Soon enough, even the cranky dude in traffic will the get the link and start whistling along.
The thing about perfect summer days, though, is that it’s not about the beach, or the sunshine, or the cool water at your feet. It’s about the people that you’re with. It’s about spending time with the people you love. When you do that, just about any day can be perfect. Even rainy days with sustained winds of over 158 miles per hour. And that’s what this song is all about. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed writing and recording it. Have a great June!
p.s. My ukulele finally got a little counter melody to play!
p.p.s. June first marks the start of the Atlantic hurricane season! So get your maps out and start tracking the storms!
