Yes, there's actually an '80s song called 'The First Day of Summer'



Welcome to the first day of summer! OK, technically the first day was Friday, but what’s a few days when you’re all you need is some tasty waves and a cool buzz.

While you may remember Tony Carey from his work with Rainbow and Planet P Project, you probably remember him best for the Top 40 smash A Fine, Fine Day. The First Day of Summer was his follow up single and in the summer of 1984 it peaked at No. 33 on the pop charts. The First Day of Summer also appeared in the 1985 movie Secret Admirer.

The video is the forerunner of many a Coors beer commercial as Artic inhabitants suddenly find themselves amongst beauties in bikinis through the magic of video.

This month Carey has released his latest album under Planet P entitled Steeltown.
