The keener eyed amongst you may have spotted a comment from Heledd the other day after I had post the titular track from this summery thread of songs.
That’s the same Heledd who I’ve known for approaching 20 years now, and who I shared a flat with when I first moved to London. Amongst other things in that time, she’s been my drinking partner, my clubbing partner, my confidante (and I hers), my DJ’ing partner, and much, much more.
Of “That Summer Feeling” she said this:
“Well it’s between this and Summertime by Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince as the greatest song with Summer in the title. And I mean that with no irony.”
She really doesn’t.
Now, if you think I’m going to let Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince grace these pages, then you’re sadly misguided. One of you will have to come up with an acceptable reason for me to post it in The Chain (yes, alright, it’s coming already!). And knowing how you like a challenge, I bet one of you does.
No, instead I’m mentioning this in a way for me to tenuously crowbar todays’ song in.
For were I ever to be asked to name my favourite two songs about lobsters, this would be number one:
And if I ever manage to track down a digital copy of my other favourite song about lobsters, you’ll be the first to know.
