This summer I went swimming/This summer I might have drowned/But I held my breath and I kicked my feet/And I moved my arms around, I moved my arms around....   32

Back from holiday with a song I first heard on TIMJ last summer and grew very fond of since.   6

if I could get sentimental for a sec...this song always makes me think of the little band I put together in Atlanta, and we did a cover of this. It was around the same time TIMJ started up. So this actually gives me quite a bit of a nostalgia related to this site. Thanks for all the songs! <3

It's still summer... sort of. At least the weather seems to think so. Hot enough for swimming.   7
