Summer Breeze - Isley Brothers, California Dreaming - Mamas and Papas, Summertime - DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince these are the songs that give me the summer feeling. My memory of In the Summertime Mungo Jerry is from a concert back in primary school having to dress in a bikini with a grass skirt and dance the hula.
