Is there any better song that captures the bittersweet adolescent pain that comes with the end of the school year, the beginning of summer, and the separation from one’s crush? Brian Hyland was a heartthrob who will forever be known for this hit, even though, of course, he had a long career that took him down interesting sonic paths. Still, you’re not gonna find any better song in his oeuvre; that’s not a dismissal, it’s simply a question of durability.
Have a great and safe Memorial Day!
