When Summer Comes Around (Welton)

  • Artist: Illinois
  • Session: Longsight Market

Think this was always the first song we played at gigs, it was probably the most representative of the illinois sound. At the end you can hear me sing backing vocals.

Incidentally I did contribute to the lyrics of this song, in that the lyric use to say

"The next door neighbours just won't know what to think"

and I suggested that ahhh actually next door neighbours always know what to think, and Matt change the line to be

"The next door neighbours will know just what to think"

I'm not sure if that would have counted towards a song writing credit / joint ivor novello award.
