"In The Summertime" was the debut single of the British rock outfit Mungo Jerry and celebrates the carefree days of summer. Songwriter and band frontman Ray Dorset has said that the song only took ten minutes to write, which he did using a second-hand Fender Stratocaster guitar while he was taking time off from his regular job, working in a lab for Timex. "In The Summertime" was a huge success worldwide and reached the no.1 position in almost all countries, among others in United Kingdom, Germany, France, Canada, Australia, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland, and New Zealand. Only in the United States it peaked at no.3. The eternal summer smash was the most successful tune in 1970 globally and led the Year-End Chart with a total of 10.963.000 points.
