I don't know why, but this song always makes me think of summer. Oh wait, I do know why. It's because the song is about summer, fun on the beach and all that good stuff. Also, back in the mid to late 80s WHFS in Annapolis played the heck out of this song, so I heard it a lot during those hot Maryland summers.
The Slickee Boys were another local D.C. band that made good. The music video for this song won second place on MTV's Basement Tapes competition in 1983, and got substantial airplay on the fledgling network. The band split in 1991.
The video is certainly a time capsule, and will likely bring back fond memories for anyone who spent much time in Ocean City, MD. This is how we partied in Maryland back in the day, at least until the man showed up to kill our buzz.
