Day 11- A song that reminds you of summer
I wondered wbout Beach Boys songs, as they always remid me of the summer, but as I had already used one of their hits I thought again ....
This song was released in 1970, but in the summer of 1973, much of my year were in a school choir. The few who weren't still had their normal games lessons. Now, I went to an incredibly strict scholl, and that summer's games lessons we did Keep Fit to this song ... really radical for those involved! So, join me in my memories of Mungo Jerry singing In The Summertime
My James song is Layabout ... yes nice title for summer days, but he wrote it when he was in Wales in a wet summer ... and I was one of those at the concert in July where he first sang it. So, it reminds me of the incredibly wet summer of 2007 ... and there is a picture on the left of that concert.
