246: Summertime 2009 !

Hi.
Finally.
Summer started here in Holland.
So it's Summertime-time!
-
Never mind me getting BBQ'd
-pass me the garlic sauce & a fresh cold beer -
I'm having my Summertime party 2009 as if nothing happened!
-
Yousa, Blimey & said a little thank you to the
Genuine-Overrated-Dude!
-
You all know how much I like this song,
and especially the millions of times it has been covered...
so here are some extreme & less extreme versions for y'all,
hope you won't get silly playing em all at once
- it's over 6 hours of continuous summertime-
[:-)
I must thank all the wonderful people out there like
Simon666, El Goog, Ish, Arkadin, Nikos, MFS-equipe (Pier!),
Reza, Greg, Katonah, Rab Hines & CIA posse,
Selim (and all others over at DBN!!!), Brian,
Smooth, pcvphunk, Into The Rhythm-crew, Bacoso, Vesper,
BeeQ, 17 Green Buicks, Ambrose, Cheeba, Wara Katsu,
OufarKhan, Pretoria, Dr. Johnny Fever, even Kevin
and lotsa other great folks I am probably
forgetting to mention right now...
-
It's quite a bunch alltogether,

Just wondering, which version do you like best? [Janis Joplin's version is my favourite.]

Groeten.

E-mile said...

Jur, the one by Janis is ONE of my favs, I find it VERY hard to pick..
(even a top 10 would be hard :-)
peace, E-mile

Simon666 said...

Hey Mr E-Mile,
big thanks for this mammoth effort . . even though I still have a volume to go, need to space these out so I don't go into the wrong sort of trance!
Anyway, I've pimped you here

all the best,
S

Whoa, now that was a SUPER fast reply :-) Thanks, E-Mile, I tried again and now all was fine. Must've made a mistake w/ copy & paste [bangs head on table] ;-)

Yah, this was the post that got me hooked, E-mile. Even got me a MU acct just for this blog, RS I already had.

Oh my, I long for the holidays to upgrade my covers playlists.

Thank you, E-mile and all contributors, for your lovely work.
