Songs Of Summer by Sheryl Crow

I’ve been pretty derelict in my duties when it comes to the recurring elements of the blog I set out for myself this week, but nothing has suffered more than Songs Of Summer. Sorry about that. Here’s a quadruple dose of Sheryl Crow songs to try and make up for it, starting with her most recent and on the nose single for our purposes, “Summertime.”

She sure has a knack for writing summer themed pop songs you want to just hang out and listen to, doesn’t she? Speaking of which, though it might not seem like a very summery song, I distinctly watching the “If It Makes You Happy” video in 1996, hanging out in the summer and watching videos.

Speaking of which, “Every Day Is A Winding Road” was pretty much in the same boat. I remember thinking “She seems cool AND she can sing and play the guitar? WHA?!”

And finally, here’s her hit from a few summers back “Soak Up The Sun.” Damn, I just looked it up and that song came out 8 freaking years ago. I feel old.

Luckily I feel old and summer though, so I guess it’s a wash.
