Here Comes Summer

Every summer for the past six summers a blog, Stax o’ Wax published by a woman named Esther, put out a compilation of summer songs that I enjoyed immensely. Unfortunately, Esther closed her blog in December of last year.

Faced with a year without a compilation of summer tunes from Stax o’ Wax, I decided to put together a compilation of summer songs as a thank you to Esther & Stax o’ Wax. Since she has put out over 150 songs with the word 'summer' in the title or about summer activities, a list without duplicating her songs was not easy to compile but I managed and, with a little luck, I may have enough songs for another compilation next year. If not, I will do a compilation of surf music - I have done quite a few compilations of surf songs for myself in the past. (My lovely bride thinks all surf music sounds alike, unlike her Irish dance music which can drive a person to drink, hence the abundance of pubs in Ireland.)

I’m sure you have heard many of these songs before but probably not by the artists who performed them in this compilation.

With a tip of the hat to Esther at Stax o’ Wax, and without further ado, here is the red meat 2013 Summer Of Song Compilation:
