It's Summer, Here's Some Summer Cruising Songs For You-- Part 1

Yesterday, Bob Stroud did his annual Roots Salute to Summer on his Rock and Roll Roots show from 7 to 10 AM on Chicago's WDRV, 97.1 FM, the Drive.  Something I always listen to and record for enjoyment later (these shows are especially good played back during the depths of winter.

Here are some songs to get you ito summer mode:

IT'S OK, I'M ALRIGHT--  Beach Boys
RIDE THE WILD SURF--  Jan & Dean
IN THE SUMMERTIME--  Mungo Jerry
BUS STOP--  Hollies

GRAZING IN THE GRASS--  Hugh Masakela
UNDER THE BOARDWALK--  Drifters  (Again, probably the absolute worst place I'd ever consider being.  YUCK!!!)
WIPE OUT--  Surfaris
HOT SUMMER NIGHTS/ YOU TOOK THE WORDS RIGHT OUT OF MY MOUTH--  Meatloaf

SUMMERTIME BLUES--  Eddie Cochran
BEACH BABY--  First Class
WARMTH OF THE SUN--  Beach Boys
