One Last Summer cover

They have the whole summer ahead of them. Is it enough to rekindle the friendship they once shared?

Harriet Greenleaf dreams of spending the summer in a beautiful ancient priory on the Somerset coast with her two best friends—but her dream is bittersweet. On the one hand, it’s a chance to reconnect three lives that have drifted apart; on the other, she has a devastating secret to share that will change everything between them forever.

First to arrive is Audrey—the workaholic who’s heading for a heart attack unless she slows down and makes time for herself. Then Lisa, the happy-go-lucky flirt who’s always struggled to commit to anyone—or anything. Ever the optimist, can Harriet remind them of the joy in their lives and the importance of celebrating good friendship before it’s gone?

Through the highs and lows of a long, glorious summer, these three women will rediscover what it means to be there for each other—before they face the hardest of goodbyes.

Song Lyric Sunday | “Hot Fun in the Summertime” – Sly & the Family Stone

SLS banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Seasons/Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall.

~~~~~~~~~~

Hot Fun in the Summertime is a 1969 song recorded by Sly and the Family Stone. The single was released in the wake of the band’s high-profile performance at Woodstock, which greatly expanded their fanbase. It peaked at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart and number 3 on the U.S. Billboard soul singles chart in autumn 1969.

FUN FACTS:

  • Rolling Stone ranked the song #247 on their list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”
  • Hot Fun in the Summertime is a dedication to the fun and games to be had during the summer.
  •  The song is ranked as the seventh biggest U.S. hit of 1969, and the 65th in Canada.
  • Hot Fun in the Summertime is known for its rare use of strings in a Sly and the Family Stone song.

Incredibly, there isn’t a decent live performance of this song to be found online, so I went with a static album cover.

Enjoy!
