    Beach Songs Revisited

    Last year we had a thread ("summer songs" or "beach songs" or somethign like that). With the weather warming up in the northern hemisphere, I figured it's time to plan for everything from your cruisin' music to your campfire selections. It's htiing the 70s here in the southern US, so the top is down on my car and I'm playing several favorites, including...

    Santana (especially the newer stuff)
    Billy Idol's latest CD "Devil's Playground"
    DLR "Eat 'em & Smile"
    any reggea available (old Marley, Tosh, etc.)

    What are you guys listening to?

    Also, I'm teaching all my students some summer songs. Top of the list: M"Margarittaville" by Jimmy Buffett.

    What are the teachers here teaching their students for summer days?

    Last year, while being on vacation in Italy i stumbled over the "Getz/Gilberto"-album. Since it features Girl from Ipanema I though I might give it a try - thankfully i did!! This is the perfect summer album for me; even if the songs might sound a bit samey and boring if youre not in the right mood for them; the saxophone solos totally make up for it - great phrasing, tone and vibrato; so thats everything i like about solo-playing! :-) ..... Actually its quite a cool effect when listening to "Girl...." since the sax comes on totally unexpected and on higher volume, so there´s a chance to appal (sp?) the first time around, because the rest of the music´s just SO relaxing :-)

    I agree with Jack Johnson.
    I've also just got (well my Dad has, but I've nicked it ) The Best Of The Beach Boys... which should keep me going until summer comes.

    That's if we get a summer here in the UK. I think we got a couple of weeks of sunniness where I am last year, and that was my lot.

    I agree with Jack Johnson definately. I think Riviera Paradise by SRV is a very chilled out song to listen to when you're chilling in the sun.


    EDIT: And I forgot to add, if you like a little 'poppier style' rock music for the summer, definately check out Jonny Lang's "Long Time Coming" album. He does a lot of blues work on his other albums but I think that album is definately one of his most commerical/radio friendly albums, has some nice guitarwork, and the tunes are quite catchy.

    I'll disagree with you for the sake of being contraversial.
