220px-Summer_Breeze#17 – Seals & Crofts– “Summer Breeze” – (1972)

Jim Seals and Darrell Crofts were two kings of soft rock in the 1970s. This one is their finest work and it’s been covered many times. Weird fact, their three biggest hits (this included) all peaked at #6 on the Hot 100. Every summer we do a “songs for summer” countdown of basically newer music. This song would fit perfectly on any of those lists.
