You know, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons sounded familiar, and thinking about it, I placed it. Most of you probably recall this song, even if you don’t recall who sang it. The song is Oh, What A Night (December 1963). The song title is, anyways. This video is from around ’76.

For some reason, possibly because a international cover of it was right before Oh What A Night on my Cover the World cd from Putomuyo, which I’ve posted about before, that song calls another to mind.

So I’ll also play In The Summertime, by Mungo Jerry, a song from back in the days when you didn’t have to look like an actor to get a record contract. A song with a message about drinking and driving in it. Specifically, advocating it. It’s such a cheerful, happy song, though.

In the summertime, when the weather is high
You can chase right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find
