For the summer, for the summer

Yesterday, I spent the lunch hour on my favorite bench in all of BYU (it has taken me five years to choose one) listening to a live performance by the Lovecapades, which was happening across campus.

It was a moment that felt like summer. My mac and cheese tasted gross, but my feet were warm on the pavement, the breeze moved the branches of my shade tree about, and my skirt fluttered. The moment only got better when the Lovecapades began playing a cover of this old, old song from my childhood. It's a silly one (actually, it's downright ridiculous), but it's one that brings back summers long since gone and pays tribute to the 80s and 90s.

The Lovecapades also favored us with a cover of "Read My Mind" by the Killers, a song which is truly great in all seasons of weather and life. Take a listen to this to cleanse your palette.

  1. Did you know that Colin of the Lovecapades is a peer mentor? Another mentor and I (Patrice... you probably know her, yes?) went over to have a listen. I was SO SO pleased when they started playing Summer Girls. I love how downright ridiculous it is.

    1. Really! I knew his sister; she was a peer mentor when I was there.

      My favorite line is the one about Billy Shakespeare. :)
