Summer Songs

Lighthouse Sunny Days

by Sandy Graham

In Canada, we have the tradition of the May 24 long weekend, in honour of Queen Victoria. Being the Commonwealth country, we still uphold this holiday, but not so much as a Birthday recognition of a long ago Monarch, but as the tradition of cottages opening up for the season, gardens getting prepared for the summer flowers, holidays being planned and always the music.

Summer brings the radio stations back to playing hits from the past that we all identify with the season approaching. ‘Summer in the City’ by The Lovin’ Spoonful, ‘Summer Breeze’ by Seals and Croft and of course the Canadian summer anthem ‘Sunny Days’ by our very own Lighthouse. Since Cashbox Magazine was known for Charts in it’s heyday, Cashbox Canada has compiled a list of the Top 30 Songs that represent the summer season.

1. Kokomo The Beach Boys
2. Summer in the City Lovin’ Spoonful
3. Sunny Days Lighthouse
4. Good Day Sunshine The Beatles
5. Here Comes the Sun The Beatles
6. Hot Fun In the Summertime Sly and the Family Stone
7. All Summer Single Billy Idol
