95 Songs of Summer, #20 - "Kiss and Say Goodbye" (1976)

I believe this may be our first song from the Bicentennial Summer, and a great one it is.

When you hear a spoken intro like this one, it is critical that what follows be good; otherwise, it just sounds sort of stupid.

But The Manhattans come through, with a classic soul song the likes of which you rarely (if ever) hear anymore.  Great vocal, great instrumentation, great costumes...the song has just about everything one could ask for.

"Kiss and Say Goodbye," The Manhattans, from the summer of 1976.
