Smart & Sexy Summer Songs

So my Director of Marketing asked me Friday to do a SmartandSexy chat about 'summer romance'. -Really??? Can I think of any 'smart' advice here?

I googled 'summer romance', and come across http://oldies.about.com/od/buyersguides/tp/summerromance.htm - which offers a good definition of summer romance, and some summer romance oldie songs - but how about some newer songs??

We ask around the office, and immediately get many lists of favorites!

Hot button!

Saturday afternoon I am outside on the swings singing with my family - bittersweet, knowing this is the last time the 10 of us will be together for a long time. My daughter is going abroad for a year, and I realize something about summer loves- While frivolous flings are fleeting, true loves, like summer, maybe disappear for a while, but always return -

Here are some of our current Summer 08 swing to favorites:

Fall for you - Secondhand Serenade
Crush - David Archuletta
I'm Yours - Jason Maraz
2 Hearts - Kylie Minogue
All Summer Long - Kid Rock
Nine in the afternoon - Panic at the disco
Mercy - Duffy
Dangerous - Kardinal Offshall (feat Akon)
American Boy - Estelle (feat Kanye West)
Summertime - New Kids on the block (hated it but now fell for it!)
If I never see your face again - Maroon 5 (feat Rihanna)
The whole Hard Candy CD - Madonna
Heaven on Earth - Britney Spears
Disturbia - Rihanna (she promises a sexy summer song every summer - I am already waiting for the summer 09 song!)

So as summer ebbs-
In the words of a song:
'Take your passion and make it happen!' - whatever that passion might be!

Enjoy the last days of your summer-
Stay hot!!
