Summer songs

Does the weather affect your choice in music? I know I complain about the weather around here and moan about the lack of rain, but the sunshine really is pretty. A bonus is being able to bust out all my summer dresses and skirts. When it's lovely and summery, it seems I always reach for power pop. I was listening to Matthew Sweet yesterday and it occurred to me that his music, especially on Girlfriend always reminds me of Echo and the Bunnymen's Evergreen. You might think I'm crazy. It's the guitars.

Compare the title tracks of each for yourself:

Girlfriend (Matthew Sweet)
Evergreen (Echo and the Bunnymen)
