S.S.'s Songs of Summer

We all have those songs that remind us of summer; those songs we purposely search through our iPods for in the middle of the winter just to know there is hope that summer is coming. Here's the songs that were played on Captain Dad's sailboat, "Simplicity," sung on my boat with my partner, listened to at work, blasted in Lilly Lover's car, ran on the beach to, and my favorite, made memories to.

"Bama Breeze" by Jimmy Buffet
Captain Dad and I love listening to this while cruising the bay in his sailboat

"Home" by Michael Buble
this is just a classic summer song that all of my friends and I love

"We are Golden" by Mika
Surfer Sister and I did early morning ab workouts on the beach to this song

"Love Today" by Mika
Lilly Lover and I loved blasting this in her car

"Sail on, Sail on, Sailor" by Jimmy Buffet
weekend afternoon sailing adventures through the bay

"Mary's Song (Oh my, my, my)" by Taylor Swift
 somethings just are explained through lyrics...this is one of them

"I <3 ?" by Taylor Swift
 my friend had a nasty breakup, so we wrote this on her hand

"Barefoot Children in the Rain" by Jimmy Buffet
 rainy days of jumping in puddles in old sailing gear 

"Young Forever" by Jay Z
 my sailing partner and I would always sing this when we weren't competing

"What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong
 may the wind push your sails right up to heaven PW, I love you forever 

"Waka Waka" by Shakira
 this was our team's theme song. why? well, the boys are very talented at FIFA the World Cup      video game and this is the World Cup theme song. which totally makes sense because we are a sailing team, not a soccer team?

"Build me a Buttercup"
my friend/team member Shortie Sailor always sang this when he was sailing. i don't know why

All in all, this sums up my summer in one quick playlist. Gotta love music...

What would be your summer playlist?

May the wind be with you,
The Sailor in Pink OoXx
