Never let it be said that I’m not bringing you the freshest, newest tunes. This song may be almost 60 years old, but it sounds as great as ever. Summertime Blues, to me, is the definition of rock and roll. Simple, infectious riff, handclaps, perfect lyrics. fantastic voice, and all over in two minutes.
It’s one of those songs that everyone know but rarely listens to, and really we all should. More than Elvis, Little Richard or Bo Diddley it’s my favourite song of the era, and with it being the 1st of June it kind of feels like the start of summer, so today is as good a day to post it as any.
