From: Somewhere you're not.
Rumpole traditionally takes a vacation to start the summer season, relaxing in a place far away from the summer crowds and noisy americans wearing loud bathing suits, sipping diet poison, playing obnoxious music on devices, and ordering another cheeseburger and fries.
Scandinavia, Lake Tahoe, Fiji, The South of France, Patagonia, and of course lovely old London, these are all places we have frequented in the past. And this year we prefer to keep our location, as we usually do, bi mat.
Speaking of Music, a subject too often neglected in these pages, we invite you to comment about your favourite SUMMER SONGS. We will post the best lists on the front page. And of course, any Beach Boys song makes the list, with Surfin USA topping it, (Happy Judge Slom?) So lets go a little deeper.
We will kick it off, with our all time favourite, deep track summer song, from First Class: Beach Baby.
Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams, makes the list. As does the 1964 classic Under the Boardwalk by the Drifters. And you can add School's Out for Summer by Alice Cooper if you so desire.
WARNING: And since in a prior discussion the blog vox populi agreed to ban offensive words and ideas, we will not approve any Justin Timberlake comments/songs.
First up, and it's a great one:
Heatwave (Martha Reeves and The Vandellas)
Summer in the City, The Boys of Summer, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, One Love….
Have at it and enjoy your long weekend.
