Since its inception in August of 2008, The Seamless Brand has set out to publish fresh material each and every business day.
With the exception of two days in January (handicapped by technical issues in Mexico) TSB has succeeded on no fewer than 225 occasions.
And now, just like you, we're ready to kick back with our flip flops, enjoy a few cold ones and slow down for the summer.
Beginning on Thursday, July 2nd, TSB launches its summer format for July/August. Regular visitors will notice the same Monday-to-Friday posting schedule with a twist. On at least three days of each week this summer, we will dig into the TSB vault and re-post material that may be worthy of a second look. We will continue to post at least one original item this summer as "Motorvationally Speaking" remains in its regular mid-week slot with a lineup of guests we're confident you will enjoy.
But, it is summer.
When the right kind of day is welcome relief for winter-weary spirits.Summer not only changes the way we approach our work, it also has a way of making the music we enjoy more vivid.
Summer songs are unlike any other.
Once "Schools Out", reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic give way to racing, romance, rowdiness.
It is only fitting that today on TSB, we unveil our 2009 list for the Top Five "Songs of Summer".
Our choices are based on three general criteria:
- The song needs to be a Top Ten single on Billboard.
- Reflects summertime values of fun in the sun.
- Comes with a kickass video.
So here it goes ... TSB's Top Five "Songs of Summer":
#5. "Summer in the City" - The Lovin' Spoonful
#4. "California Girls" - David Lee Roth
#3. "Summer Lovin'-John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John
#2. "Surfin' USA" - The Beach Boys
#1. "Walking on Sunshine" - Katrina & The Waves
Close, but no cigar honors go to several artists including:
- ''Summertime Blues'' - Eddie Cochrane
- ''In the Summertime'' - Mungo Jerry
- ''Cruel Summer'' - Bananarama
- "Heat Wave" - Martha and the Vandellas
- "Summer of 69" - Bryan Adams
- "Margaritaville" - Jimmy Buffett
Hope you enjoy many perfect days through July/August when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, the music is rocking, and the lawn mower is broken.
