Simone White - I Didn't Have Any Summer Romance

“They’re always writing songs about a summer love that never seems to last beyond the fall.” I know right away there’s a story here I want to listen to, and Simone makes it easy to listen. The title gives away the plot, but doesn’t prepare me for the cool horn orchestration. “Nobody bothered to break my heart in two.” Very nice song, easy to listen to as the summer vacation leaves my bones and I get ready to get back to the daily joy of working with the future generations. Shoutouts for a series of thematic songs whose titles will give away their purpose – American War, Imperialist State, and We Used To Stand So Tall. Simone White
