Never been much of a Summer guy. It was always kind of boring to me growing up in Jersey. You’d get out of school in late June and have zilch to do until football practice started in early August. I remember a lot of waiting around, wandering my hometown, getting told constantly we couldn’t hang out outside the convenience store by the guy who ran the convenience store. 

So you can imagine how much joy today - the first unofficial day of ‘fall’ - brings me. While there’s plenty of songs that capture the joys of summer and peaks of beach season, far more rare is the anthem for the end of August. The war cry for us who aren’t that into the whole June-August deal. Buffalo Tom gives us just that - near perfectly IMHO - on their 1995 track “Summer."
