Day 3: A song that reminds you of summertime

The potential:

Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. Not gonna lie. I loved this track when I was younger although the only words I knew was ‘Summer, summer, summertime!’ πŸ˜†

The runner-up:

Boys of Summer – Don Henley. Loved this song when I was younger as well.Β 

The winner:

Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams! I used to be a huge Adams fan and whenever I listened to this song, it came like reminiscing about the good old days. Fun Fact: Adams would’ve been 10 in 1969; he co-wrote this song with a friend who was 17 in ’69. Jimmy and Jody were real people Adams knew, so the song is like a mix of both of their lives (Adams & his partner),Β but Adams OWNS this track.Β

And now the times are changing
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Oh, yeah
Back in the summer of ’69
Oh It was the summer of ’69
