The following piece seems like the themesong for summer 1982, when I had my first sexual relationship with a woman. (she stole my bank account.) (Strangely enough, it was written int he 1960s but only became a hit in 1981.)
Things got better! Here is my themesong for the summer of 1989, when I became involved with the Latina who is now my legal spouse, and I finally got my Master's degree after passing the oral exam (no pun intended) in which I defended my thesis on five novels by Doris Lessing. This song is all about dreams come true in a vaguely Latin setting:
Here is a hot summer classic:
Note that this song is awesomely covered by a home-grown (from the town where I live) velvet-voiced prairie singer-songwriter, Heather Bishop, but I couldn't find her version on-line.
Here is a favourite of mine, "Greensleeves," which my mother taught me to sing at age 3 to impress grownups. This version, by the King's Singers (UK) is the same arrangement that I sang with Prairie Pride Chorus, a local choir which dwindled away until it folded. Alas, my loves.
Here is the funniest song about summer here in Saskatchewan I've ever heard:
If you missed some of the lyrics, here they are:
Okay, now I hope this will post.
Speaking of pirates, I must rush off to continue checking student essays. The plagiarism is out of hand.
