Summer Songs

Summer time is approaching fast.

What will be my summer theme song this year?

Carrie Underwood has a killer song, "Before He Cheats." Perhaps three years ago, that would have been my song. Now I just laugh when I think about my former's Corvette and a muddy dirt road.

(You have no idea how well Corvettes handle in the mud.
I cannot find my picture of it, but this one is damn close).

I found this list of summer songs from the New York Post.
Pretty cool to look back and see the all the great songs.
