Summer is officially beginning to slip away from our grasp with the return of football and pumpkin spice lattes. However, you can hang on to summer well into the long winter months with the right songs to take you back to warmer days filled with swimming and sunshine. Every season has its share of musical anthems but summer has long been a favorite lyrical subject for artists wanting to capture and express the joy and fun of summer through their music. The music related to summer is just as much a part of this season as the sunshine, cold drinks, and the beach. I think it’s safe to say that everyone has at least one song that takes them back to these simpler times.

All of us who love cooking have our favorite go to recipes. Your favorite artists are no different. Many musicians spend much of their time traveling, whether they are touring or recording/promoting their work. Eating at some of the world’s top restaurants and having personal chefs may seem glamorous but even that can get old after awhile. Having more time to cook their own meals is something that many musicians miss while on the road.
