If I had to rank months from my favorite to my least favorite, I would put August dead last. It’s hot, I don’t love the heat. There are no great holidays. It’s National Psoriasis Month, which is a skin disorder I don’t care to have. The month of August usually seems to last the length of three months in anticipation for the sweet sweet glory of September and it’s crispy fall glory. And I know that many people who I share blog lovin’ with feel the same way. (dohopoki’s summer fandom is irrelevant).
Combine my distaste of August with the lack of posts by Mr. Caracappa at XE could result in a void of the annual-ish August Mega Party on his fantastic website. So, I decided to start my own. It feels a bit cheap to steal this idea from him, but we can call it something else…uh…August Monster Party? August Super Party? I dunno. It’s a blog party in August.
So, it’s day one. I have to sand 3400 square feet of logs and stain them today, but I will put that aside until I nail out a post. The Mega Party from Matt always celebrated summer, and I am going to attempt to do the same.
DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince give us this classic tune and remind us there is a time to drive 2 miles an hour.
Summer Girls by LFO…so we know what to wear to impress guys with lots of hair gel.
Lovin’ Spoonful and Summer in the City. Great Song. In fact, I can’t think of a better summer song at this point. So I will end with it.

Summer Monster Party is a fantastic title!
First vote wins..Monster party it is!
You do know I have a “Soundtracks For Summer” series on my main blog, right? 😉
Anyway, can’t wait for the rest of the party!
I did know 🙂
You could always submit an idea for it! 🙂
It’s not even listed here, but the instant I read the post title, “Boys of Summer” got stuck in my head. I only know one verse and now that one verse is doomed to repeat in my head all day long at work. Summer Monster Party works!
When I get a song stuck in my head I try to sing it from beginning to end really loudly and it usually clears it from my brain.
Super Mega Block Party?
I find myself listening to a lot of Coltrane in the sumer. There’s something claustrophobic about it that appeals to me on a hot night.
But I’m wierd.
I hate to say it, but “Hoochie Mama” by 2LiveCrew is a summer favorite. Okay…I don’t HATE to say it.
Norbet guy: I submit this on Amy’s behalf.
It’s kinda douchy but I always liked “Steal my Sunshine” by Len for summer and of course, my wife likes “Summertime” by New Kids on the Block. Ugh.
