You can almost feel the warm summer breeze caressing your face when this song plays. Such 70s pop rock goodness. As refreshing as a cold class of lemonade when the heat's hitting about 95 degrees. Seals & Crofts had a number of hits in the 70s, but nothing beats this summertime anthem.
The Isley Brothers did a version of this in the 70s that's a little sexier, but this version is crisp, airy and delightful. Released in 1972, it hit number 6 on Billboard Pop Singles chart and ranks 13 on Rolling Stones' "Best Summer Songs of All Time." Summer is a time for relaxing, taking it easy and enjoying life. Being carefree. This song is the essence of summer in the 70s.
