Summer Compilation Vol.3 (2009)

Happy First Day of Summer! Summer is my favorite season, and I don't care how hot it gets. I love the bright colors, the ice cold drinks, the lazy days, wearing shorts and flip-flops, and the wonderful memories it brings. So, in celebration of the First Day of Summer, I offer you my annual summer songs compilation - a compilation of songs that all have the word "summer" in the title.

I'm a long time follower of Stax O'Wax.. I wanted to thank you for this very kuhl compilation. Ya know, I used to play it so much when I was on the radio, but I totally forgot about that Beach Boys song. Just a quick request... There was a teriffic version of 'Here Comes Summer' by a group called The Whispers... It was out on Laurie in the mid 60s. If ya ever find it, could you post it? Thanks for all the goodies you post!

Thanks for these excellent summer compilations. I can't tell you how much I enjoy listening to these.. I have made compilations like these myself, back in the cassette days.. Nice to know there is another summer music fan out there like me.. And every track MUST contain the word "summer" LOL.. That's a must.. Thanks again and take care.. Mark W
