It was a long week, between work deadlines, parenting, and administrivia, that I hardly noticed the calendar flip to August. These are truly the dog days of summer: temps above 90, baseball heating up, football still weeks away, every other person out of town on vacation. So while I'm feverishly cranking out reports at work and trying to stay on top of responsibilities at home, I'm also trying to make a minute or three to chill. Here is some of the background soundtrack to get me there. (Yes, I stopped listening to pop music in the mid-90's.)

Paris - Mellow Madness [warning: explicit lyrics]

DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince - Summertime

Bruce Springsteen - Streets of Philadelphia (as performed by the Tufts Beelzebubs)

Boyz II Men - End of the Road

Rich Mullins - Calling Out Your Name

Francis Scott Key - Star Spangled Banner (as performed by the Dixie Chicks)

Too Short - Life is . . . Too Short

LL Cool J - Goin' Back to Cali

Alphaville - Forever Young

Don Henley - Boyz of Summer

Bryan Adams - Summer of '69

TLC - Waterfalls
