Song Description

Top Ten - Rock: Classic Top Ten - Rock: Americana

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song back in 1965 for my Chicago band, "The Chosen Few" to perform at our shows. It was an instant hit. The one studio version of this song was lost over time, so through the prodding of some old fans of the song, I re-recorded it. Sounds pretty good and sure was a lot of fun to produce.

Couldn't be a better nostalgic trip to early rock n roll than this. Incredible lyrics, really nice hook, excellent instrumentation, mix, and arrangement. Really great job here.

    - MGB

Very retro 60's pop/rock tune , reminds me of a lit of those old beach movie soundtracks ... just waiting for Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello to get up and dance.

1. We met at a party after school let out
And danced to The Beatles playing, "Twist & Shout"
We laughed and talked all night and it did not take too long
Before we knew that something's going on..... we had a ....

CHORUS:
Summer love, working on our tans
Summer love, always holding hands
Your string bikini drove every guy insane
But no one could take you away

2. Elvis at the drive-in movies put us in the mood
For bonfires on the shoreline and marsh mellow Bar-B-Qs
We passed a guitar around and took turns singing songs
And all our friends, yeah, began to sing along ... that we had a ...

CHORUS:
Summer love, living on the sand
Summer love, you were my girl, I was your man
Fireworks and moonlight were shining in our eyes
'Cause everyday was like the 4th of July

BRIDGE:
Transistor radios playing Beach Boy songs
And at the Dairy Queen we were sipping chocolate malts
Cruising by the ocean with the rag top down
Then wind up sharing cotton candy and kissing on the merry-go-round

CHORUS:
We had a........
Summer love, working on our tans
Summer love, always holding hands
These are the memories that still live in our minds
And no one could take them away .... we had a .....

CHORUS:
Summer love, loving out on the sand
Summer love, you were my girl, I was your man
Your pink bikini drove every guy insane
But no one could take you away .... we had a ....
Summer love, summer love, to have and to hold
Summer love, no one could take our, summer love
