Summertime

"Summertime" is my favorite song in the world. It used to be the song I made my mom sing to me over and over before I went to sleep and then years later when I was 20, I sang it every night for a summer to cabins full of Girl Scout campers. It was the best.

There are a lot of great performances of it -- Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, my mother obviously. 

Next to good ol' mom, I'm going to have to say Doc Watson's is my favorite. As seen here.



P.S. And, yep, I will definitely be singing it to baby boy!

I'm unable to watch your video, but will look the song up.

I'm guessing you'll be singing it to your own child soon too :)
