Of Summer I Sing

School may be out but I thought a fun quiz about summer songs might just be the ticket for this theme Thursday. I've chosen lyrics to 7 songs that all have the word "summer" in the title. Have fun and no worries, everyone gets an A+.

I'll post answers this weekend.

1: Oh, your daddy's rich and your momma's good lookin'

2: Well, she got friendly, down in the sand.

3: Stranger voices are sayin'
What did they say?
Things I can't understand

4: I got my first real six string. Bought it at the five and dime.

5: Son you gotta make some money if you wanna use the car to go a ridin' next Sunday

6: Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

7: Cool town. Evening in the city. Dressing so fine and looking so pretty.


  1. this is hard and I'll only get a few. here goes:

    1) Summertime
    2) ?
    3) ?
    4) Summer of 65
    5) Summertime Blues
    6) Summer Breeze
    7) Summer in the city

  2. You're trying to drive me insane, is that it?

    I peeked at CG's answers (she's good!) and that helped me out, but I think it's Summer of 69, isn't it? (I'm a Canadian, so I know my Bryan Adams.)

    I'll be back for the answers!


  3. Ok, this was fun! I'm glad we all get an A, because I only know three of them!

    1. Summertime...and the living is easy
    6. Summer breeze..makes me feel fine...
    7. Summer in the City..back of my neck gettin' dirty and gritty....

    Fun, Fun!

  4. 1. Summertime (from "Porgy and Bess")
    2. Summer Nights (from "Grease" -- tough one)
    3. Cruel Summer? (another tough one)
    4. Summer of '69
    5. Summertime Blues
    6. Summer Breeze
    7. Summer in the City

  5. Hi Kate,

    Dang it SF seems to know them all. I mean I have heard them, but I only got Summer Breeze correct, cause I do not know the names of most songs anymore. I need to get my amplifier hooked back up again. I am spending too much time on the computer and no music to hear. Okay I could get my boom box out, but it is in that room full of stuff packed up to the ceiling and too dangerous to go into there and look for it. I need to have a yard sell. Maybe someday......not. I'll just give it to the Goodwill as usual.

    I like this game though. I just suck at names that need titles. Damn, ever since I fell and hit my head on the asphalt, whammmm, my memory sucks. What was I just writing about? Where am I? What was the name of that? Who was that person on that show? What show? Bamm, hit that asphalt and jarred my brain into oblivion. But at least I got one right, at least I think I did. Which one was it again?

    God bless.

  6. lol mrsu! nice play on the theme. the music of summer...summer of 69 is such a great anthem. too late to play, but not too late to push 'play'. hope you have a great weekend!

  7. My Brains Turned To Mush! I only got Summertime Blues!'touble is Im too busy dancing to listen to the word!(that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it!)
    Have A Summertastic Weekend!

  8. I LOVE stuff like this!

    I have to ditto what the Silver Fox said. I would never have guessed #3, though.

  9. I got 1,5,6,&7, and could hear no.4 in my mind, just didn't know the title.

  10. I've been humming Summer Lovin' all day since Grease was on last night. Surprised that was the tough one for folks - how can you not see John Travolta singing that line? Fun stuff.

  11. Great fun! I will be humming those songs all day.
