    This song reminds me so much of summer and it's perfect for today. I hadn't listened to it for a while.

      Here are a couple I remember from my youth that just cry out that summer's here:

      Groovin' with Mr Blo - Mr Blo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dh2AsQWk … re=related

      In the summer time - Mungo Jerry http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zc9wIzi96_E

    In the Summer of '69, Bryan was 9 years old. He told us: "It's a very simple song about looking back on the summertime and making love. For me, the '69 was a metaphor for making love not about the year."

    I'm old, too. smile  This was released in 1984, just after I graduated from college.  Brings back memories!
