What album(s) most remind you of summer?

This is actually a really easy question for me to answer. The first is:



I got this tape sometime in 1994 and it never left my Walkman for that entire summer. With the exception of "Mad Lucas" it was a completely perfect, flawless album. Later that year I got my first CD ever, which was Pod.

The other is:



I got The Power Out sometime in May and listened to it a LOT that summer. The drive to the beach is about two hours and I usually used this CD to kick-start the drive. I didn't want something super high-energy and this was a nice smooth way to relax until we got closer to our destination.

Hot Fuzz is probably a distant third.

More like a long EP than an album, but

Blur - Parklife
Pink Floyd - Meddle

Yep me too. That album and the Flashdance soundtrack were playing constantly on a student bus tour I took of Europe. Hard to believe that's almost a quarter century ago.

DIGITAL UNDERGROUND - SEX PACKETS: Summer of 1990 I believe, we listened to that nonstop. Humpty Dance was everywhere.

Yeah, me too. That album was huge that year. I specifically remember hearing that album blasting out of the station speakers of the big roller coaster at my local amusement park in 83. I was 10, Return of the Jedi had just come out and I was riding the Cyclone with "Synchronicity 1" as a soundtrack. Good times...
