Random Songs In My iPhone, Part I

I have a crazy weird mix of songs on my phone. I might as well share. A couple days ago while driving, my phone played these songs one after the other. I definitely wasn't complaining.

Mungo Jerry, "In the Summertime"

I'm glad I was born at the end of the 70s. I'm not sure I could pull off that crazy kind of facial hair. Or fur boots. But the song has a great beat. Always in rotation for summertime driving with the windows down. Maybe it's a bit "on the nose."

Doris Day, "Everybody Loves a Lover"

I can't find a video on YouTube of Doris Day singing ths song but I did discover an awesome version with ukulele and kazoo. Crazy! I feel like this song exemplifies how a person in love thinks everyone around them is also in love with them being in love. Still, it's catchy and I adore Ms. Day.

Gloria Estefan, "Conga"

Tap your toes, wiggle your derrière and try to keep up with the Latin songstress singing "somethingsomethingsomething conga somethingsomethingsomething." Just pure joy.

Wild Cherry, "Play That Funky Music"

I dare you to sit still and not sing along to the refrain of "Play that funky music, white boy." Another great song that doesn't get enough love.

Any other suggestions? I'm always in need of new music. Or old music to rediscover. Just don't suggest "Total Eclipse of the Heart." Already got it.
