If I was making a playlist of my favorite summer songs, "All Summer Long" by The Beach Boys would be high on the list.
This song was written in 1964 by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, and it's the title song of The Beach Boys' All Summer Long album. The harmonies are wonderful, and that is a xylophone you hear in the background, along with a piano.
The lyrics capture old fashioned summer fun like:
"T-shirts, cut-offs, and a pair of thongs
(T-shirts, cut-offs, and a pair of thongs)
We've been having fun all summer long
(All summer long you've been with me)
I can't see enough of you
(All summer long we've both been free)
Won't be long til summer time is through
(Summer time is through)
Not for us now
Miniature golf and Hondas in the hills
(Miniature golf and Hondas in the hills)
When we rode the horse we got some thrills
Every now and the we hear our song
(Every now and the we hear our song)
We've been having fun all summer long"
Here are two minutes of retro summer happiness:
