The Jamies

This is as close as Romper Room got to the top 40. I can’t credit it, really, it’s just so strange.

The Jamies:

Summertime, Summertime – Of all the summertime songs, well, this is one of them. The words are all there, you know, no more school, hang around, go to the beach, have thrills, but the music, well, I guess the group sounds like the Mouseketeers on helium. Covered many years later by The Legendary Masked Surfers, who had something to do with Jan & Dean, years after Jan & Dean existed. From the fall of 1958, this missed the summer first time round, then recharted in the summer of 1962, so it got to be a summer hit after all.
