The Month In Music: July

JULY.

8:00 pm sunsets, hot concrete, and the pleasantly chemical smell of sunscreen. 

 

Heat shimmers. Air conditioners rattle, then give-out with a pathetic huff.

Sweat above your lip. Gathered at the small of your back. 

The first month to face toward the end of the year, we do things in July that we know we shouldn't.

Things we would never do in winter.

The way your thighs sting after laying in the grass.

The way your heart stings when a promise turns fleeting.

All bookended by two bangin' Ramones songs.

These are my most played songs of July.
