Day 246: goodbye summer, we’ll never, never die and we’ll never get old

3 Sep

Hard to believe it’s that time of year.
Time to wave goodbye to summer.

It’s been a great last hurrah here on Martha’s Vineyard, with lots of sun, fun, beach, yoga, food and sunsets.

As we say goodbye to summer, I thought I would say goodbye to the songs of summer. (That includes you Call Me Maybe).  To officially say farewell, check out the Top 25 Summer Songs of 2012.

It made me realize that there’s something fundamentally linked about summer and music. More specifically, the soundtrack of summer. Memories of summer past are engraved into my soul purely through the sound of music.

I will always remember the summer of Toad The Wet Sprocket.

We spotted the ocean at the head of the trail
Where are we going, so far away
And somebody told me that this is the place
Where everything’s better, everything’s safe
Walk on the ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Wood becomes bone

But, here’s my new fave for the final days of this summer (new to me, thanks to @phjess)!

If ever there was a time
If ever there was a place
I don’t know what you’ve been told
But we’ll never, never die
And we’ll never get old

Goodbye Summer.
What was your favorite song this summer?
