The Durutti Column - Otis: 8

One of the most relaxed pieces of music I've come across here. It fits especially well with the warm temperatures around here.

This is the record that I most associate with a hot summer day in July or August. I think it was on the radio at that time in 1969 when I was mowing our lawn on a hot day. I had the speakers set up in the window facing outside while I was out there.

First Aid Kit – In the Hearts of Men: 7
A typical First Aid Kit song, but I just really like their style. There is something ethereal about them that manages to also be grounded, which shouldn't work, yet does. This doesn't stand out among their best songs, but there is still a lot to like.

Galaxy 500 – Temperature’s Rising: 6

Yet another lazy and warm song, but not as good as Otis. It makes for a fine listen, but I think the voice doesn't completely suit the song. To sharp in a way.

I'm not keeping track, no.

The Books - Take Time: 6
One of those odd songs to hear on it's own. I need the whole album to ease me into this. It is interesting, the way the repeating of the words "Take Time" actually make feel nervous more than put me at ease and there is a lot going on to strengthen that feeling. That is all by design though, I'm sure.

Also, we reached #500 today, so this means another update of the main list is coming. I want to start this next Saturday, so if you want to catch up with voting, now is the time!

A very decent light heartland rock song. Nothing unexpected, but it is fun.

What the fuck? This wasn’t on my list? I love this song! The Longest Time is an easy 10 and probably a top-5 Billy Joel song for me.

The Longest Time is a 10 but it was in fact on my list at #351, as best as I can tell, which is odd..

I went back and checked an you are right! You indeed voted for the song. There is a mix-up on the original results sheet as BonnieLaurel named the song For the Longest Time, giving the song two entries. StevieFan did not vote for it, by the way, you two are still the only ones, so it wouldn't have made the top 2000 songs regardless.

But, this means that The Longest Time is ineligible for this poll. Here is a new entry for today:

502. Johnny Rivers – Summer Rain
Year: 1967
Album: Realization
Biggest Fan: JamieW (#260)

Johnny Rivers – Summer Rain: 8

This must be one of the earliest songs to long back on the Summer of Love with some nostalgia. It was only a year ago! A very good sixties ballad.
