Rhino Playlist: Play That Summer Single One More Time
If you’ve taken a gander at your calendar, then you’ve probably noticed that Saturday marks the first official day of summer. This is one of those dates that rarely rates more than a half-hearted “oh, that’s interesting” from anyone who’s still in school or has school-age kids – when school lets out, that’s when summer begins, no matter what the calendar says – but it still seems like a decent enough excuse for us to put together a playlist featuring some of our favorite “summer” songs.
There’s something about the summertime that always seems to bring out the best hooks from pop songwriters, which you’ll notice immediately as you find yourself humming along to such ditties as “The Other Side of Summer,” “Summer Holiday,” and “Cruel Summer,” but we’ve dug in and found some slightly deeper cuts to keep you smiling in the summer sun. Give it a listen and enjoy!
