It becomes painfully obvious just how old I am (as if I didn’t already know) when I realize that I am not the target audience for ANY of the nominees for 2016’s Song of the Summer, as noted on all the cool people’s lists. Ariana Grande? Honey, to me she’s no more than a Starbucks Tall (hoho, because she’s so petite).
But this was a summer chock full of live music – more than usual for us – so I’ve assembled a soundtrack of our own, selected tunes from the musicians who got our pulses racing these past few months. They’re not all new (mostly oldies) and they’re not necessarily chart-toppers, but all have been – for at least a few minutes – a favorite song of my summer. As we head into Labor Day weekend I hope you’ll join me as we revisit my Summer of (Musical) Love. Hit Play and turn it up, my friends!
