LYRICS: John Mayer

“Wildfire”

Today, April 1st, turned out to be a beautiful sunny day on the island. Spring days like these make me instantly long for summer – and I know I’m not alone. As I was paying close attention to the lyrics of this John Mayer tune, I noticed it was the perfect anthem for summer romance…

“River’s strong you can’t swim inside it
We could string some lights up the hill beside it
Tonight the moon’s so bright
You could drive with your headlights out
‘Cause a little bit of summer’s what the whole year’s all about

You look fine, fine, fine
Put your feet up next to mine
We can watch that water line
Get higher and higher
Say, say, say
Ain’t it been some kind of day
You and me been catching on
Like a wildfire

Don’t get up just to get another
You can drink from mine
We can’t leave each other
We can dance with the dead
You can rest your head
On my shoulder if you want to
Get older with me
‘Cause a little bit of summer makes a lot of history”

John Mayer

Song Of The Day

Brett Dennen – “Comeback Kid”

I’ve been listening to a lot of summertime, sunny, fun, happy music at the beach lately (LIFE IS GOOD) and I keep on coming back (haha) to this song! The other day, I gave my summer mix to a friend, and today when I was at the beach, he texted me asking specifically about this track. I then proceeded to listen to it on my iPod right then and there in the sun, and even the 100th time, it sounded SO GOOD!

SUMMER MIX

I was in dire need of a summer mix to listen to in my car now that the weather is gorgeous and my windows are always rolled down. I made this the other day and I’m thrilled with the energy of it. A good summer mix can make you feel like you’re driving to the beach when you’re running errands or driving to work. BONUS: It’s a great mix for working out as well…
