Memorial Day has come and gone and June is upon us. The beer's on ice, the grill is hot and the backyard is ready for use and abuse. Crank 'em up and join me in a celebration of the best damn summer songs I can dredge up from my admittedly scrambled memories.

it just sounded like walking the streets in July as the dog days really clamped down on the city. Dragging my rear end out to the lake just for the breeze, almost not even seeing the girls.. almost...

Yeah - it's a little schmaltzy, but can't beat it on the beach as the fire flickers to life with a sun warmed hottie curled up against you. The Beach Boys made my dating life so much simpler back in the day...

Janis - 'nuf said. pass that doob and give another one back, bartender

Parties were just more fun on the beach, in the backyard or by a pool. the beer tasted better, the girls were smiling and the music sounded happy to be out of the basement for a change

It's not like summer doesn't inspire anthems even today, right? there's something about the first time you drop the top and leave it down until you roll up well after midnight with the radio blasting

Get out there and take those chances you didn't want to take when you were freezing and miserable. heck - summer can even make this one sound good:

You were reaching back a little bit there! I remember listening to some of these on my mom's am radio in her Cutlas and on my transistor radio.

Nice selection, except for Kid Rock, who turns my stomach personally.

I'll have to post a Generation X version of this. Thanks for a great idea.

When you grow up with parents who had an Elvis collection, a mother who loved the Beatles as much as her older kids, and brothers and sisters who bought albums incessantly - rock stopped around 1975....
