Long Hot Lazy Summers, Climbing Trees and ......

What songs take you back to those care free days when nothing else mattered apart from staying out of site of the old security guard on the local building site, and playing football and 'baggsying' being Brazil?

To be honest I can't think of any as I was mainly out doing all of the above.
The only time I can recall listening to music was on Sundays when we used to listen to 2/3/4 way family favorites on the BBC (before radio 1, 2 etc.

Davy's on the Road Again - Mannfred Mann's Earth Band 1978.

Boristhemini - your junior needs tuition - crossbatted - hands miles apart - feet all over the place.

Mind you - it looks as though he connected - hopefully he wasn't c&b (he's looking straight at the bowler) and it went straightish mid-off.

I think the ball flight confused him..... it came to him with snow on it!

When I were a lad, I used to spend my school hols working on our friends trip speedboats in Looe, Cornwall and I still get a summery feeling listening to the shipping forecast!

Sad, I know but still great summer nostalgia for me!

Thumbs up

Oh my goodness Tigs, that's exactly what I've been gorging on sucking to bottled milk, aged 3!! Dad had a compilation(an album perhaps), this one was followed by White Christmas, I loved that song soo much that I coerced my mum (a nursery nurse) to play it to all the children there. And the next one was We Will...loved them all.
Then discovered the Beatles, then ABBA, then Dire Straits & Pink Floyd etc, you know the story.

You made my evening , big thanx to you!

The sound of kitchen crocks and pots through an open window. It sounds exactly the same wherever you are and never fails to take me back to my childhood.

Then again, I can't remember a long hot lazy summer. especially after the short, cold, watching BBCCRAPGOLD+1 16 hrs a day summer we have just had.
Thank god we left a decent carbon footprint for some sun for a couple of weeks.

On carbon footprints..... aren't odour eaters mainly carbon? Does that mean to keep the earth happy we all have to have feet that smell of parmesan??

Frostbite, only audio on Good Timing, but check out the neat little roadster on Handy Man.

Radar, don't settle for less than the original.

The tune to Junior Choice on the radio which I think was 'Rockin', Rollin, Ridin' but I'm sure there are one or two of you who can, and may correct me if I'm wrong, and one or two who will add in a tease about my obvious vintage!

Mostly Vera Lynn, Frankie Vaughan, Johnnie Ray and such like. I wasn't much interested in what lies behind the green door, I was more interested in getting out on my bike and finding somewhere to get "arl clarty mucky" as they used to say. I usually had scuffed shoes, arse hanging out of my shorts and either scabs on my knees or a filthy hanky tied round it to stem the flow from the latest wound. The summer lasted for months, blue skies every day and it never rained.

Then I discovered girls, or to be more accurate, they discovered me. My fondest early memories of music are of background music to late evenings spent on new experiences - the Shadows "Apache" "Rebel Rouser" etc. - and learning to French Kiss with Edwina ****** round the back of the garages. Happy Days! Tree climbing and getting 'arl clarty' round the building sites lost their attractions after that, somehow.

BBQs listening to David Bowie on a not-very-good tape recorder, in the back garden. How my parents must have loved me.

Then Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd, BBQ on the beach with mates, getting a tan, having a paddle.

The last of those summers that I remember was 1962 and the song I associate with it was Brian Hyland - Ginny Come Lately.

Ah, now you're talking memories SSK - the secluded cliff tops at Saltburn and the newsagents daughter (Eddie's folks had moved to Cheshire by then) More Happy Days.
