It was back in 1970 after a performance at the Hollywood Festival when Ray Dorset the lead singer of Mungo Jerry had their biggest hit with In The Summertime. This does not feature on the Pudenski Brothers playlist, however, Dorset celebrated success in 1980 with a song originally written in 1977 for Elvis Presley Feels Like I'm in Love, however, Presley died before the song could be offered to him. Mungo Jerry released the song as a B side. The song was picked up by Kelly Marie a Scottish disco singer took Feels Like I'm in Love to number one for two weeks. This most definitely is on the Pudenski Bros playlist. Back to Mungo Jerry and In The Summertime and celebration of the sun-kissed days of summer, spend on the beach with fabulous sunsets and tasty BBQ's. The song was incredibly successful spending 7 weeks in the UK singles chart and is one of the biggest selling singles of all time behind Bing Crosby's White Christmas and Elton John's Candle In The Wind 1997 selling an unbelievable 30 Million copies.
