It Feels Like Summer

Share this post:

"Oh! You Summer girl" Billy James. Philadelphia: Billy James Music Co., 1915.

Each of the four seasons has inspired its own songs, but none so much as summer. From the cool breeze of Al Green’s “Feels like summer” to the cool pose struck by Pavement’s “Summer babe,” songwriters seem particularly inspired by the onset of heat, humidity, and vacation. While In the Muse cannot approximate the feeling of driving along the boardwalk and blasting the Ramones out of your car stereo, come celebrate with summer-themed songs from the Historic Sheet Music Collection, 1800-1922 in the Performing Arts Encyclopedia.
