Summer is totally here, readers, so we decided it would be a good idea to bring in Sheryl Crow, the well-known "Soak Up The Sun" songstress, with her brand-new video, "Summer Day." It's the first single from her new album, 100 Miles From Memphis, due out this week.
Crow, a former music teacher and back-up singer for many, including Michael Jackson, hit it big as a solo artist in 1994, when "All I Wanna Do" topped the charts. She's gone on to have a very credible career--all of her albums have hit the Top Ten in the U.S.
"'Summer Day' is a delightfully breezy slice of glory-days AM radio pop," Wikipedia tells us, and we tend to agree. In the video, the singer and her band perform the song in a park as little kids dance and folks ride bikes, fish, and, in general, have good, old-fashioned American summer fun. We hope you enjoy it, as well as our captions, and hope to see you back here again next week.
Important blog note! Readers continue to do the heavy lifting around here with some excellent alternate captions to our frames. This week we recognize Karen, who broke us up with her caption to one of last week's pictures.
