"Wonderful summer": The girls loved this very popular summer song!


This is Robin Ward's "Wonderful summer".

It's a classic summer love song. It is also one of the few summer songs recorded by a female vocalist.

Robin Ward is one of the greatest "one hit wonders" in pop music.

Who was Robin Ward? We don't know much about her but she did record one of the most "girly" summer songs ever!

And the girls love this song:


"I want to thank you for giving me
The most wonderful summer of my life
It was so heavenly
You meant the world to me
And anyone could see that I was so in love
I want to thank you for giving me
The most wonderful summer of my life
I never will forget That summer day we met
You were so shy and yet you stole my heart away
We strolled along the sand Walking hand in hand
Then you kissed me and I knew
That I would love you my whole life through
I want to thank you for giving me
The most wonderful summer of my life
And though it broke my heart
That day we had to part
I'll always thank you for giving me
The most wonderful summer of my life" (lyrics)

"Surfer Girl" is just right for the first sign of summer!


Welcome to what really feels like the first week of summer.  I love Beach Boys songs about summer.  They are fantastic. 

As I mentioned, Brian Wilson is a superb songwriter, arranger and pop music vocalist.

What do we listen to this year for our first song of summer song?  "California Girls"? "Surfin' USA"?  "The warmth of the sun"? "Surfin' Safari"?

I will pick "Surfer girl" this year and I hope that you like it as much as I do:


"Little surfer little one Made my heart come all undone
Do you love me, do you surfer girl
Surfer girl my little surfer girl
I have watched you on the shore Standing by the ocean's roar
Do you love me do you surfer girl
Surfer girl surfer girl
We could ride the surf together
While our love would grow
In my Woody I would take you everywhere I go
So I say from me to you
I will make your dreams come true
Do you love me do you surfer girl
Surfer girl my little surfer girl
Well Girl surfer girl my little surfer girl
Well...."

Feels like summer so let's remember The Beach Boys!





The Beach Boys are the best American band of the rock era. 

They were Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson (the Wilson brothers), cousin Al Jardine and good friend Mike Love.

They recorded a lot of hits. Their sound is synonymous with great harmonies, summer and young love.

My favorite song is "Wouldn't it be nice", a song about young love. It was also from "Pet sounds", their great and very influential album!

The Beach Boys started out a summer band but became one of the most influential rock groups of their time:






The Democrats should spend some time with Camille Paglia this weekend


Over the last six months, we’ve struggled explaining to Democrats why they lost the election and may continue losing elections. It’s been painful, especially that last public explanation from Hillary Clinton.
So it was nice to read what Camille Paglia, not exactly a member of the right wing conspiracy, has to say about it.     
Her interview with The Weekly Standard is long and covers many subjects, from Hillary Clinton to sex changes. I would recommend it all but this portion is specifically dedicated to Democrats who are still traumatized over the election night results.
This is what Miss Paglia said:   
Had Hillary won, everyone would have expected disappointed Trump voters to show a modicum of respect for the electoral results as well as for the historic ceremony of the inauguration, during which former combatants momentarily unite to pay homage to the peaceful transition of power in our democracy. 
 
But that was not the reaction of a vast cadre of Democrats shocked by Trump’s win. In an abject failure of leadership that may be one of the most disgraceful episodes in the history of the modern Democratic party, Chuck Schumer, who had risen to become the Senate Democratic leader after the retirement of Harry Reid, asserted absolutely no moral authority as the party spun out of control in a nationwide orgy of rage and spite. 
Nor were there statesmanlike words of caution and restraint from two seasoned politicians whom I have admired for decades and believe should have run for president long ago—Senator Dianne Feinstein and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. 
How do Democrats imagine they can ever expand their electoral support if they go on and on in this self-destructive way, impugning half the nation as vile racists and homophobes?
Could any of us say it any better? Racists and homophobes?   
What a nice way to communicate with people! Can you imagine Company A explaining their loss of market share to Company B by calling customers stupid and ignorant.  How would that work?  Not well.  It’s not working well for Democrats either.
Paglia’s point about Senator Schumer and others is excellent. Where is the Democrat calling on the rowdy base to stop screaming and accept election results?  Or the Democrat who tells the base to stop talking impeachment before there is an impeachable offense!
And the clincher:   
In summary: to have any hope of retaking the White House, Democrats must get off their high horse, lose the rabid rhetoric, and reorient themselves toward practical reality and the free country they are damned lucky to live in.
Ain’t that the truth?
She then goes on to say that the reluctance of Western liberals to candidly confront jihadism is very unfortunate. Indeed it is as the parents of little girls in Manchester will be happy to confirm.
What should a liberal do this weekend?  Shut off CNN and spend a few hours with Camille. Frankly, she makes more sense than all of those “experts” at CNN, the New York Times and other outlets consumed with their Anti-Trumpism.
The Democrats do not have a Trump problem. They have a “crazy base” problem and they’d better deal with it before the next election.
