Summertime
Back in the 80s I recall a song that got a lot of radio play. It was probably called "In the Summertime" but even though there are several songs out there by that name I haven't been able to find either the song or the artist. Part of the lyrics were:
"I like the summertime where the girls wear their dresses so high, you can see the sun on their th-th-th-th-th-th-thin skin."
I was neat and none of my kids who were teenagers at the time remember it. Any suggestions?

Summertime
Hi Dan:
I'm utterly blown away by the information. I get the feeling you truly enjoy working with the music. I've been scouring the Internet for years and only now decided to try (discovered is more like it) the One-Hit-Wonders. You made my day with Mr. and Mrs. Garvey and The Troggs as well. If you wonder why I wasn't more aware of the music when it was popular, I was struggling to bring up five kids while living in the US up until 1969 and then in Mexico until 2004. I heard most of this music because the kids were listening to it and never paid much attention to the artist and/or name of song. Living in Reno, I remembered the old song "It's quite a lovely painting Mrs. Custer" and upon investigating found out that Reno is named for General Jesse Reno and not Custer's second-in-command.
Please forgive the rambling but I'm 72 now and while still working, have more time to reminisce and reconstruct some of those "good-old-days" for my grandkids.
I have a request in to Mardie's Music looking for the Mr. & Mrs. Garvey but I think I'll end up buying one of those you put me on to. I'll buy an old turntable if I have to but I'm thrilled out of my skin. I thank you a million times over.

Ron,

Glad to help! Instead of buying a record player, consider letting Vic Ferri transfer the Garvey album to CD. It's much cheaper and then you'll be able to play the CD anywhere.

You can contact Vic here...
