Songs on Repeat: Summertime Favourites.

What does summer mean to you?

Is it the lazy loungey high notes of Billie or Joplin’s “Summertime”?

Is it floating on a lake running your fingers along it’s surface, bonfires or sitting on a porch watching fireflies?

Maybe it’s long sweaty hikes followed by icy berry lemonade and BBQs…
