"In The Summertime" by Mungo Jerry.

OK, more 70's one-hit wonders: Lead singer and guitarist Ray Dorset wrote this 1970 seasonal classic for his British pop-blues band - their first and only U.S. hit (#3). It sold over 16 million copies worldwide. One of the highest selling singles of all time and the world's top-selling summer song. Band? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Come On Down To My Boat" by Every Mother's Son. I was visiting San Francisco in '67 when I first heard it. Great memories! From Kris Karr: "Nice Poldo. There were so many really great songs with flowing harmonies back then. Better production I think than we have now."​ch?v=50b-Q-Z1bF0
