The summer is ending, school looms ahead, and the days are not so hot (or long) anymore. It's the end of summer. Time to say good-bye to swimsuits, summer jobs, and summer friends. It's also time for an "end of summer" mix CD, so here are the Top 20 songs for the End of Summer, from Top2040:
1 - Time Stand Still by Rush This song by the Canadian power trio has always been one of my favorite songs about the passing of time. It's not just the end of summer, it's the end of other year. Time marches on. A fantastic song!
Summer's going fast, nights growing colder; Children growing up, old friends growing older
2 - Summer's Almost Gone by The Doors
3 - The Last Day of Summer by the Cure from the Bloodflowers album.
