Driving to the Jersey shore, school out for summer. Radio blasting (do you remember rock n roll radio?) “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” by The Smashing Pumpkins. Cruising the streets of Philadelphia with the sun beating down, looking for something to do – blasting “Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince (yes, before the Prince changed his name to Will Smith). Or how about attending a local car show checking out the…um…cars while the radio blasted”Live Forever”by Oasis. (all things I did in my teens / early 20’s. (the places are specific to me, but this cycle repeats all over the world). The summer anthem typically brings up feelings of nostalgia, evoking memories of a carefree time not weighed down by the complexities of life. Try too hard to create the summer anthem and the song can get buried under the weight of the effort.
