New Jersey Memories

Greetings from the Garden State!

Fun Summer Songs

"Summertime Blues" - by Eddie Cochran -- rock and roll will never die! 


"Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer" by Nat King Cole. 




"Summer in the City" by the Lovin' Spoonful. 




"Hot Fun in the Summertime" by Sly and the Family Stone (one of their best although almost everything they did was great!) 



Mungo Jerry: "In the Summertime". You wouldn't get away with the lyrics "a drink and a drive" now! Gotta dig those mutton chops! 



  1. Hi thanks for stopping by today thru SITS. I thought your Wordless Wednesday photos of the trains were great. I'm a "Jersey Tomato" myself. There are some Jersey references throughout my blog especially about the shore where I plan to head today.

  2. @pbenjay -- Ah, the Jersey Shore! Well, today is the day for it! So hot and humid.

    Thanks so much for visiting!

  3. This is great! I love Nat King Cole! You have a new follower from Friday Follow! Come and visit Mama's Little Chick.

  4. @Mama Hen -- I love Nat, too! Thanks for visiting!

  5. Love those summer songs! I had just mentioned 'Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer' to someone else on another blog!! :-)

    I'm in NW Wisconsin, but I've loved being 'out East.' So much to see, so much to do, so much so close together - unlike here.

    Thanks for visiting Cranberry Morning and following along! :-)

  7. @Cranberry Morning -- Thanks for visiting. I'm sure the Wisconsin countryside is beautiful. I just spent last weekend driving through the Pennsylvania countryside and it is gorgeous. The country life is so peaceful. You can actually relax and not feel that you have to rush around all the time.

  12. "In the summertime" is one of my fav's to play in the car this time of year. Also, for old skool's sake, I love Will Smith's "Summertime," which also brings back some nice memories.
