"Tonight...I'LL SPEND MY BREAD....Tonight...I'LL LOSE MY HEAD..."


With the unofficial end of summer a few days behind us, and the official end more than a few away, I offer you the first installment of "BURNING WOOD's" WEEKEND MIX. Nothing too trendy here. This is simply my perfect soundtrack for summer. You must have these songs somewhere. Burn the disc, hit play and be reminded of all the great summer moments-the smell of garbage in the air, the soul-numbing slowness of the subway on a holiday schedule, A-Rod's spectacular play in the clutch, life-altering weather patterns, and...aah...just enjoy the music for the music

i like your list, sal...i have two problems with listening to summer songs...the memories they invoke can be seems like an innocent enough idea to listen to some of that stuff, but for me its like washing up for dinner in a tidal wave.....the other thing, and the one i have more trouble with, is that after experiencing all those memories, i realize that i will likely have far fewer ahead of me, than those in my rear view...but hey...thank you dr. nunziato...same time next week?
