A gorgeously upbeat slice of melancholy from the self-styled world's greatest bar band. The song is from 1977, but the lightly forlorn melody and ringing guitars are Sixties Top 40 heaven. Singer Al Anderson sings about a summer fling that ended so bad he thinks about his ex-girlfriend every time he gets in his car.
