Baby Boomer Fun: The End of Summer

No real estate on Thursdays...

Labor Day is just around the corner, so today, thoughts about songs speaking to the end of summer come to mind. Here are two quick ones.

In 1966, The Happenings, a bit of a Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons sound alike group, did a song called See You In September, which peaked at # 3, and stayed on the charts for 14 weeks.

Brian Hyland is another 1960's AM Radio star associated with summer time. He first hit the airwaves in 1960 with Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, decidedly influenced by the rise of the surfing culture.

Hyland recorded for a number of years, charting as late as 1969 with The Joker Went Wild, at # 20. (AOL video, could be slow to load).

But this week's video clip will come from 1962, a song that topped out at # 3, Sealed With a Kiss, a definite end of summer love song.

2 Minutes and 26 Seconds...ENJOY !
