Musical Monday #1: Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts

musical-monday-500x370

 

Music is a big part of our lives. Two of our (three) boys are working in (and loving!) the music industry. Now, I’ve never been one to tout my musical prowess or sophistication. In fact (much to the chagrin of my family) I will proudly state (or rather admit) that I love 80’s sing-a-long music.

I happen to think that the fact that music speaks to so many people in so many ways is a wonderful Silver Lining. So, I thought I’d start a new series called “Musical Monday’s” to share with you the music and lyrics that speak to me. I’d also love to hear from you!  What music speaks to and inspires you?

I thought I’d start the series with a song that ooooooozes summertime.  Hope you enjoy it! By the way, as I write this, Sweetly Six is bustin’ a move to the Cars (so my kid!).

Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts.

See the curtains hangin’ in the window,
In the evenin’ on a Friday night.
A little light a-shinin’ through the window,
Lets me know everything is alright.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind.

See the paper layin’ on the sidewalk,
A little music from the house next door.
So I walked on up to the doorstep,
Through the screen and across the floor.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind.

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom.
July is dressed up and playing her tune.
And I come home from a hard day’s work,
And you’re waiting there, not a care in the world.
See the smile a-waitin’ in the kitchen,
Food cookin’ and the plates for two.
See the arms that reach out to hold me,
In the evening when the day is through.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind.

    Oh, I looooove this, it's a great idea! A very dear friend (our friendship is a HUGE Silver Lining in my life) has a blog and she does something similar on Thursdays, called Thankful Thursdays. One recent Thankful Thurdays post read: "For new adventures conquered and priceless family memories made." I have four favorite blogs, yours, hers, Frances Schultz' and the Whimbles, those are my four steadies! How about, Kokomo by the Beach Boys? Well, anything by the Beach Boys, really!
