Summer Compilation Vol.6 (2012)

Happy First Day of Summer (barely making it before it's over)! It's time for my annual summer songs compilation! Summer is my very favorite season, and I am glad it's here! The first three summer compilations contained only songs with the word "summer" in the title, but two years ago I expanded the song choices to include the words "beach", "surf", and "sun", and this year I added songs about summer and summer activities, but don't necessarily include any of those words in the title. Please do post a comment with other summer song suggestions that I can use in future compilations. Hope you enjoy this!

Thanks a lot!

What a wonderful surprise. I've been checking back periodically and, wow, did it every pay off. I have volumes 1-5 of this collection, so I was delighted to see Volume 6. Thanks for the work, Esther. Like the others, this one looks like another filled with novelties and just plain fun music. Summer has begun!
