My 99 cents no. 3: Summer Breeze

Announcements:
- I created a MySpace that has all the stuff that I feel would clutter up this blog [sometimes there's too much going on in my head]. Find it HERE and thanks in advance for the add ^_~ More social networking to come soon, I imagine.
- The Hitchcock film poll will be closing this weekend, so vote soon.

Just wanted to end what has been a wet, chilly week for those of us in the Northeast with a little listening that'll get us ready for the return of the sun. Summer Breeze by Seals & Crofts charted at no. 2 in the country in 1972. It's a sweet, lilting song with a touch of sadness and the simple lyrics in the chorus are nifty. As is often the case, I feel like there may be a deeper meaning to lyrics that I'm missing, but it still feels good. Actually, the song itself is as minimalistic as the 70s got [think disco diva strings]. At this point, this song is almost a cliche, and I don't say that to be rude, and you should have it on your iPod if you don't already. Download legally, please.

Enjoy the weekend away from work.
