Summer Anthems

LFO. Nada Surf. Primitive Radio Gods. These three bands have something in common, and it's not that they all rock my Livin' in the 90s CD from Time-Life Records. They all had hits that were infectious enough to bore into the cultural collective for a brief respite during the long, languid days of summer.

Which leads me, inevitably, to ask: what's your summer anthem? It could be that track you can't stop repeating on your iPod for this current vernal timeslot, or just a old favorite, perhaps the song that was playing at sleepaway camp back in the summer of '93 when you kissed a boy (Aaron).

For me and mine, this summer I've rediscovered The Boss. My parents are seeing him 20 rows close this Sunday which makes me insanely jealous, but then again, I do not hold music so dearly as the rest of the authors do.

My summer anthem for 2005: Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen.

What's yours?

By the way: kudos to Brendan "Cauliflower" McFadden for being the first person to ever post a comment about one of my entries. That simple act caused me to change my gay joke above from the Fads to Katz.
