This month at Through Heart-Shaped Glasses, our theme is summer. We’ve talked about everything from movies to favorite vacation spots and activities. We’ve talked about romances with summertime settings and our awesome vacations and staycations.
I’m a huge fan of summer. I love hot weather and our annual beach vacation. My birthday is in July. We’re no longer bound by the “school schedule.” For me, there’s plenty to love about summertime. I even have a summer playlist featuring some of my favorite songs that remind me of warm weather, vacations and all things hot and fun. 🙂
As a writer, a playlist helps me set the right mood for my writing. For example, if it’s the middle of winter and I’m writing romance set during summer vacation, my playlist helps me forget that softly falling snow and remember, in vivid detail, the feel of hot, grainy sand between my toes. Also, during warm weather, I love rolling down the car windows and blaring some of my favorite warm-weather tunes.
Here, in no particular order, are a few of my favorites.
Summertime, New Kids On The Block
Cruel Summer, Bananarama
Summer Breeze, Seals and Crofts
Sealed with a Kiss, my version is performed by Bobby Vinton
Cruise, Florida Georgia Line
Dirt Road Anthem, Jason Aldean
Carolina Girls, General Johnson and The Chairman of the Board
So, what are some of your favorite summertime songs?
