Summer, 1966, and this song came out (I believe this very version). A summer memory for me because my friend had just gotten his new 1966 Mustang V-8 convertible, and this song was always playing on the radio, a Top Ten, as we'd cruise around with the top down. Good times.
His convertible was the same blue as the ragtop in this commercial. BTW, at the same time, I was driving a 1966 50-HP VW Karmann Ghia... LOL!
Oh man, I seriously hated this song because my best friend in high school was obsessed with it at the time. But oddly enough, it reminds me of summer every time I hear it. Hard to believe the lead singer of this lame group is dead!
