Continuing with Bob Stroud's summer songs:
ROCKAWAY BEACH-- RAMONES-- Do they wear their leather duds out to the beach?
SATURDAY IN THE PARK-- CHICAGO-- Always reminds me of summer school at the University of Georgia back in 1972.
SUMMER RAIN-- JOHNNY RIVERS-- Wow, a song he didn't cover!!
BACK TO THE ISLAND-- LEON RUSSELL-- Our old summer island was Put-In-Bay out in Lake Erie on South Bass Island with Pat Dailey and Mad Dog Adams.
SUNNY AFTERNOON-- KINKS-- Ray and Dave be cookin'.
HOT SUMMER NIGHTS-- MEATLOAF-- Another good summer song of the Loaf's is "Paradise By the Dashboard Light" which I sang so well with the bartender at the place across from Preservation Hall on Bourbon Street.
SURFIN' USA-- BEACH BOYS-- Surfin' and Summer? Who'd have figured. And that water is WAY TOO COLD!
BEACH BABY-- FIRST CLASS-- Can't get this one out of my head now.
DANCING IN THE STREET-- MARTHA & THE VANDELLAS-- Does anybody know how many places they were dancing?
SUMMER IN THE CITY-- LOVING SPOONFUL-- "Hot town, summer in the city."
If Gas Prices keep Dropping, I Might be Able to Afford to Drive Some Place. --RoadDog
