95 More Songs of Summer - "Draggin' the Line"
I'm not sure I had any idea what Tommy James was singing when this song was a hit; all I knew was that I liked it a lot. To these ears, the sound has a distinct '60s feel, even though it wasn't released until after that decade closed up shop.
I also remember around this time that one of the local TV stations aired an early edition of MTV on Saturday afternoons, with local DJs introducing the songs followed by a "trippy" video like this one. Sure seemed cool at the time.
"Draggin' the Line," Tommy James, from the summer of 1971.
