It's summer. It's not too hot, but mid-90's is the rule right now and that says welcome to summertime. Since my tastes in music are closely related to time of day, weather, and seasons, summer brings a change to my audio indulgences. When the days get longer and heat becomes the rule guilty pleasures get their due. For some reason top down, cruise town, pure pop bubbles my mood.
The single example of this - my guiltiest pleasure for nearly a quarter century - is a mindless, lyrically twitish, little ditty from a pair of otherwise whiny popsters. But it rules my airwaves and this morning it got its first play o' the season. It just makes me happy to hear it. Pure cotton candy.
What's your guiltiest summer aural pleasure?
Hey, if Patti Smith can cover it, I can't be alone.
