Here in San Antonio, the temperatures during the past couple of weeks have been pretty amazing – for summer, at least. Any time highs are in the 80s or 90s in August? I’ll take it! The forecasts have been perfect for long car rides and cruising around with the windows down. It makes me wonder if there are songs about windows.
The eyes may be the windows of the soul, but music is the window to our hearts. The slightly cooler weather our beloved city has had lately makes us appreciate windows just a little bit more. So we’ve decided to put together a list of the top 5 songs about windows. Let’s take a look.
Songs About Windows
How Much is That Doggie in the Window? – Patti Page
This is likely the quintessential song with window in the title. Did you know the singer didn’t want the dog for herself? If you pay attention to the lyrics, she’s actually looking for a dog for her sweetheart – to keep him company while she’s gone.
Lookin’ Through The Windows – Jackson 5
This 1970s song sung by the Jackson 5 is all about love. Valentine’s Day may be in the rear-view window, but we’re always “lookin’ through the windows, the windows to your heart.”
I Don’t Do Windows – Jamey Johnson
Oh, the hardships of relationships. A nagging wife and a fed-up husband who will do anything, except clean the windows. Fun fact: The phrase “I don’t do windows” is originally from an old Windex commercial back in the 60s. The commercial showed a housewife who kept trying to hire a maid, but each one told her, “I don’t do windows.” In the end, the housewife pulls out a bottle of Windex and says, “Windex does windows.” Window World TX “does” windows, too – replacement windows. 🙂
Look Out Any Window – Bruce Hornsby
I have a confession to make. I’m a sucker for Bruce Hornsby’s brand of late 80s piano rock. This song, in particular, seems to share a message about the dangers of pollution and greed.
Bust Your Windows – Jazmine Sullivan
Let’s hope you never have to deal with busted windows from a crazy ex. But if you do, we hope you think of the Window World TX jingle. We’re here to help!
Needless to say, if you need a good song about windows to get you through the day, give these a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
