Summer time is here and I couldn’t be more excited. These are just a few of the summer hits you’ll find on my iPod, whether I’m running outside or hitting the gym. What would you add to the list?
1. Alice Cooper – School’s Out (Even if I’m not in school anymore, this song brings me right back to the days when we got summer breaks.)
2. Martha and the Vandellas - Dancing in the Street
3. Beach Boys – Surfin’ USA (Any Beach Boys song makes for an awesome summer workout playlist but I love listening to Surfin’ USA and pretending I’m on a surfboard.)
