Summer Songs-Chad and Jeremy

Today in Music History:

In 1975, Kim Fowley formed the first ever all female heavy rock band, The Runaways. Joan Jett was one of the members.
Chad and JeremyOur second summer selection is by Chad and Jeremy. It is surely a summer song, wait a second that's also the name of it, Summer Song. British folkish duo Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde charted 11 US singles from 1964 to 1966. They had much more success in America than their counterparts Peter and Gordon. On the other hand Peter and Gordon had great success in the UK and Chad and Jeremy charted only once in their native land. Their biggest hit happens to be todays song and it just makes you want to sit under a shade tree and sip some lemonade. Chad and Jeremy's vocals and harmonies were simply stunning. Maybe that's too strong a word, but they were beautifully sung. These guys broke up around 1968, but it just wouldn't be summer without hearing this song at least once. Have a good weekend all.
