Summer Mixtape, Track 12: "That Summer Feeling" - Jonathan Richman
We've sort of slacked off on the whole Summer Mixtape thing but what do you expect? It's summer, the perfect time for slacking. We'll start it back up today with a slight mood shift. Most of the songs featured so far have played to the hot and steamy summer vibe. But there's another side to summer -- the tranquility of the sun setting at 8:45, the carefree attitude but also the realization that it's temporary and fleeting. No song better captures those sentiments than this Jonathan Richman classic, which is absolutely on my short list for Best Song Ever.
