Here's something else I've been enjoying from my Big Summer Playlist 2010 (cunningly formed in iTunes by selecting all songs with 'summer' in the title - brilliant!).
This was written by The Shangs' personal manager Larry Martire, about whom I know nothing, sadly.
Say life’s a game and it hurries by so fast And if you find someone to love, do your best to make it last We were too young and the summer's come and gone Until the time we meet again the memory lingers on
The Shangri-Las - 'The Sweet Sounds Of Summer' (1966)
