Bon Jovi – Summertime

I don’t know why, but this song cracks me up, and I listen to it once in awhile. I haven’t mentioned it on eartaste all summer ‘cause I figger this one is hitting the airwaves all over, and everyone's sick of it. But as summer leaves and I’m listening again, I’m just enjoying the thought of hearing this one pop up every year as an oldie but goodie. There’s no surprises here – the stadium rock drums are here, but it is silly listening to a Jersey Cowboy talking about drinking wine in the summertime, and nothing makes me happier than silly on a night like this. Shoutout for Whole Lotta Leavin’ (“summer sun is packing up and long gone.”) and We Got It Going On. Bon Jovi
