"Theme From A Summer Place" as recorded by The Percy Faith Orchestra in 1960, is the longest-running instrumental number one in Billboard chart history. The tune was originally used in the soundtrack to the 1959 film A Summer Place starring Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue, with lyrics, known as "Molly And Johnny Theme". To me, this melody is the perfect summer tune, light as a feather, conjuring images and even sounds of a beautiful summer meadow filled with blooming flowers, a cooling breeze floating through the trees, and birds chirping in the background. Amazing!
