"Summertime Summertime" by The Jamies.

OK, more seasonal one-hit wonders: This catchy, bouncy T. Jameson/Feller composition peaked at #26 on Billboard in '58. Re-released in '62, peaking at #38. Serena Jameson does the lead vocals backed by a harpsichord. Covered by The Fortunes, Jan & Dean and Sha Na Na and used in Buick and Applebee's commercials. Song? Group?

Yesterday's answer: "Oh Well" .... Can't help it by the shape I'm in... I can't sing, ain't pretty and my legs are thin...also covered by Joe Jackson on the Laughter & Lust album. "...but don't ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to.". My, how the sound changed once Stevie and Lindsey joined - and the rest is rock & roll history!
