"In The Summertime"

Recommended Posts

Get your Wayback Machine motor running, "Todd in the Shadows" looks at Mungo Jerry's 1970 hit, "In The Summertime." Why did this "jugband-simple" song make the #1 lists across the world? Who is "Mungo Jerry" and did he (or his band) ever record anything else? "Todd" says something about a "motorcycle" at the end of the song, but I thought that was a "jalopy with a badly tuned/misfiring engine, limping off into the sunset."
