Summertime is, to me, the most wonderful time of year. To celebrate, I've been posting summer songs. This isn't a Top 10 series--I'm merely posting them as they pop into my head. Call it Summer Songs from a Guy that Loves Summer, if you have to call it anything at all. Led by guitarist David Gavurin, and fronted by the sweet vocals of his wife, Harriet Wheeler, The Sundays formed in London in 1988. They are probably best known for their hit "Here's Where the Story Ends." Their final studio album, 1997's Static & Silence, contained the hit "Summertime," a #15 hit in the UK, and #10 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart. The All Music Guide called The Sundays a "jangly dream-pop band," which is quite accurate, especially on "Summertime." Give it a listen, and then get out there and enjoy that heat!

For some reason, my girlfriend asked about those guys just the other night, so it very well might.

Wow, another one I never heard before. But then again, back then I was into heavy metal. Still am. I should look for some old favorites to post up here.

You should. I don't think I've seen anyone post any metal discussions that I can think of.

@teamfreak16 That sounds like a good idea. I have to make a post about heavy metal music.
