Memorial Day Weekend Open Thread - The Songs of Summer
Ahh, Memorial Day. The unofficial start of summer, if you will. A much-needed three-day weekend, one that for many of us that is the first one since January. It's a time for family cookouts and barbecues and first trips to the beach, despite the oceans being ungodly cold. It's a time when the first wave of 'big' summer movies comes through, paving the way for three straight months of hopeful summer blockbusters. It's also a time when most colleges have already had their graduations and high school students (and teachers) are anxiously counting down the days until summer vacation.
With all that in mind, today's open thread centers on the songs of summer. What songs do you think of that conjure up the image of the season? Feel free to share your favorites in the comments below! And, in the spirit of Memorial Day, many thanks as always to all in the TPV community who served or had spouses or family members serve protecting our nation. This weekend is for you.
