Is This The Best Ever Summer Song?

Published by at 2:41 pm under Blog,Music

Foley mentioned this song on his show today – the bastid didn’t play it though. I think it’s the best ever summer song (I was very young when it came out and probably didn’t appreciate the subtle sub-story beneath the deep lyrics):

    Ha, that brings back memories!
    I remember my ma always getting very uncomfortable when that came on the radio. That and ‘lets talk about sex’.

    I have a funny story behind this song…. I bought it when it came out on tape so it could be played in Mum’s car.

    So there we are in and underground car park on holiday, me in the back with my Sister – Mum and Grandma in the front, and in the tape goes. From the silence of this very bleak and dark car park comes a voice……

    “I’ve been watching you….”

    I swear we all looked around before realising it was on the tape!!!

    In truth the best one ever is this


    Sorry it’s in Dutch but the hammyness transcends all language barriers.

    (“give me a toppertje (beer), pineapple breezer and give me a double whiskey too” is the chorus)

    @Mary Those days? I’m still innocent!

    @Darragh Nope – deadly serious!

    @YerMan Step away from the blog!!!

    @Sheepie Yeah, and Do You Think I’m Sexy (although the discomfort may have had more to do with the fact that Rod Stewart was singing it. No, Rod, no one thinks you’re sexy!!!).

    @Keiron What is this ‘tape’ you speak of?

    @Xbox Don’t think much of the song, but the video rocks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It’s so long ago I almost forget myself!

    I’ll let you know if I come across them again, particularly if I come across one containing this track!!

    @Keiron Truth be told, I think I have this on cassette an old Now album somewhere down home.
