"They Tell Me It's Summer" — The Fleetwoods (1962)

I'd never heard of nor heard this song by this great group until reader Joe Peach sent it my way.

He wrote:

I have listened to a LOT of oldies stations.

I once had a job where I listened to oldie and doo-wop music 12 hours a day!

No, I'm not an expert by any means, but I have only heard this gem once or twice.

YouTube comments:

I'm 68 and have been around since the beginning of rock 'n roll and this is one of the greatest songs ever. I've never heard it before!


Even though I grew up in the Fleetwoods home territory of Seattle in the 50s and 60s, I never ran across this incredibly beautiful song until recently. One of the best "B" sides EVER!

The Fleetwoods' "Come Softly To Me," their 1959 debut song which went straight to #1, has always been a favorite of mine.
