Throwback Friday: “Everybody Loves the Sunshine” by Roy Ayers

See!  I told you this week I would go back a decade.  Time for some 70s spring/summer lovin’ music.  Released in 1976, “Everybody Loves the Sunshine” is the title track off Roy Ayers’s album.  A native of LA, it only seems natural that this jazz artist would pen a song like this.  As I listen to it now, it feels like a precursor to sounds you hear in G-Funk made popular in the late 80s and 90s by folks like Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and Nate Dogg.

Roll down the windows, open the sunroof, throw on some shades, and ladies make sure your lip gloss be poppin’ (lol) and just vibe out to “Everybody Loves the Sunshine” by Roy Ayers.  There’s no official video for it, but  I found a live performance that was pretty hot.


In case you’re completely unfamiliar, I thought it would be helpful to add the album version below.

    Thank goodness.
    I don’t know about everybody, but I certainly love the sunshine.
    And this song is just plain lovely.
    Makes me feel like hi-fiving a guys and exchanging smiles with gals.
