Single Sisters Speak Out

The Modern Life of the Single Sister

Summer Jams May 22, 2009

Filed under: Single Sisters On... — Sunny @ 6:26 am

There are certain songs that I hear that signal the beginning of summertime for me- time for barbeques, smaller clothes and men in their basketball shorts (what is it about those shorts that are so dang’on sexy?) 

Anywho, even if I hear these songs in the winter, they make me long for the warm sunshine that is hopefully, not too far around the corner. 

How about you- which songs signal the beginning of summertime for you?

*** FYI:  We will be not be posting on Monday, May 25, 2009 to enjoy our three day weekends from work.   Enjoy your Memorial Day and be safe.  We’ll see you on Tuesday!  ***

    This is a must Summer song.

    Thuggish Ruggish Bone always reminds me of Summer.

  7. Jay Boog: We are too much alike. It’s scurry… Maybe we should have been born Geminis and it’d make more sense (did I use the right Zodiac?)

    “Before I Let Go – Frankie Beverly and Maze”

    This song is like the ULTIMATE barbeque/ mixed crowd (old and young people) song.

    For some reason, I like Diamonds are Forever – Jay and Kanye.

    Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince: Summertime (the quintessential summertime song. For me, my list includes:

    Any song from R Kelly’s Born in the 90’s
    Jay-Z – Excuse Me Miss
    Pharell – Frontin’
    Commodores – Zoom
    Santana & Michelle Branch – The Game of Love
    MC Breed – Ain’t No Future In Your Frontin’
    NWA – Alwayz Into Somethin’
    Rene & Angela – Your Smile
    Selfish – Slum Village with Kanye West & John Legend

    I’m sure there are others that I’m missing.

    Cynthia: I haven’t heard the name “Dove Shack” in a decade! I completely forgot about them.

  20. Shawnta` Says:

    Hey, y’all!

    – Got to Give it Up

    I also like “spring fling” songs:
    – Ghost Town DJs (LOL!) – My Boo
    – LL & Boyz II Men – Hey, Lover
    – Sage – Old Time’s Sake (is that who did this?)
    – Aaliyah – Rock the Boat

    I also like anything by Biggie and Jay-Z, Doo Wop by Lauryn Hill & Mariah Carey songs.

    @Hugh: Love Slum Village. Selfish & Tainted are faves.

  21. Shawnta` Says:

  22. Shawnta` Says:

    Oh, Ice Cube’s Today was a Good Day is a popular one too.

    Another song I hear a lot (but don’t really care for) E-40’s Carlos Rossi.

  23. Hey there!

    I remember that Will Smith cut!! That was the jaaaaaaaaazam back in the day!

    And of course, the Pimp Daddies (The Isley Brothers) can never be imitated…that was back when balladeers tried to look like Super Fly….
