The weather in Chicago that winter wasn’t remarkably cold or snowy, but I think we may have set a record for days without sunshine. It seemed to rain every day in April and we still hadn’t had much sun or warm weather. There was finally a beautiful, warm, sunny day mid-May. I dropped everything and spent the day outdoors. I NEEDED the sun. I wrote this song the next day. “Our Summer Song” is a celebration of summer’s arrival. Summer had always been my least favorite season- HAD always – until now. I can’t wait for summer to arrive and already don’t want it to end.

Our Summer Song appears on the delicious Shark Sandwich.
