Making Mt. Rushmore #19 – Summertime Songs & Road Trip Songs

In the nineteenth episode of Making Mt. Rushmore, panelists Steve Bennett & Calvin Crowell join moderator/panelist Andy Atherton to discuss which Summertime Songs deserve a place as on their respective lists. Is “Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince a no-brainer? What about “Cruel Summer” by Bananarama? Will “Night Moves” by Bob Seger grab a spot? Does “School’s Out” by Alice Cooper or “Summer Girls” by LFO deserve a place? After that, they discuss which Road Trip Songs will be part of that grouping. Can you argue that the “Born To Be Wild” by Steppenwolf shouldn’t get a spot? Will “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac be included? Is “Slow Ride” by Foghat the conversation? What about “Send Me On A Way” by Rusted Root & “Panama” By Van Halen?
