Day 3: A song that makes you think of summertime

I promise to post songs from the 21st century sometime during this 30-sing cycle.  In the meantime, I choose “Spill the Wine” by Eric Burdon & War for the day #3 challenge.  Cool video!  Celebrating hot sunshine, sure, but the flute and percussion are sublime.

I was once out strolling one very hot summer’s day
When I thought I’d lay myself down to rest in a big, tall field of Mexican grass
I lay there in the sun and felt it caressing my face
As I fell asleep and dreamed
I dreamed I was in a Hollywood movie (yes, I did)
And that I was the star of the movie
This really blew my mind
The fact that me, an overfed, long-haired, leaping gnome
Should be the star of a Hollywood movie
But there I was….

Interested in music. Most of my personal catalogue is indie bands, and punk, but also avant garde, blues, Motown ... almost but not quite, anything. I am now learning much about classical and contemporary works. I'm looking for people to share music, new and old, and looking for new avenues to discovery new music. Come with me.
