Endless Summer



Wouldn't it be nice if we were older, then we wouldn't have to wait so long.
- Beach Boys


I vividly remember being a kid and driving 80 miles an hour down the highway with the windows rolled down and blasting the Beach Boys with my dad. It was his favorite band, and so naturally it was mine too. My favorite album is Endless Summer, and this really encompasses the fact that I don't want summer to end. This summer is unseasonably cool, and I find myself constantly waiting for the heat to arrive. Luckily, when the weather gets me down, all I need to pick me up is a little Surfin' Safari and I Get Around. Listening to the Beach Boys always leads to smiles and Fun, Fun, Fun.

  1. I did a post last night on summer too :) I'm desperate for it to arrive (another couple of months), so sick of the cold weather! Hope you get a few more weeks of sunshine!

  2. Marcie I've been thinking about you like crazy. I want to thank you for somehow connecting me with Lou because that's where Lisa found me and she became a true blue email friend of mine. I really can't thank you enough.

  8. I love the Beach Boys too and have so many fond memories from childhood and high school associated with their songs. And I totally know what you mean about the weather getting you down! This dismal weather really affects my mood. But you're so right about music brightening things up.

  10. Driving 80 miles per hour with the windows rolled down seems a bit reckless. It must be a Cali thing.
