Super Soaker.

"Walking On Sunshine (Super Summer Mix)" - Katrina & The Waves

Talk about one-hit wonders and this band will surely enter the conversation. It's not an entirely accurate description of the band worldwide though since they hit the top-10 again in 1997 in the UK with, "Love Shine A Light". Here in the USA, this is their only genuine hit (peaking at #9), so we can still call them a one-hit wonder. Yeah. I know. Get all technical. Shut my hole. Got it. The self-titled first LP The Waves released for Capitol Records was comprised of re-recorded and/or remixed versions of songs previously released in Canada. Ready for some of the films this song has been featured in? How about "Look Who's Talking", "American Psycho", "High Fidelity" and "Daddy Day Care"? The beat goes on. "The Super Summer Mix" lasts 5:34 and Scott Litt, remixer and producer of such tracks as "Radio Song" and "Shiny Happy People" for R.E.M, did the work.
Damn you sir, you will dance.

Thank you thank you thank you so much for this mix!!! This is one of my all-time favorite songs. (In fact, I have an ongoing argument with a music friend of mine regarding the merits of this track. He, obviously, stupidly opposes me. LOL) This song never fails to put me in a good mood.

-Thank YOU Steve. Your friend lacks faith. I find that most disturbing. Ha!
- WVKayaker: You are most, most welcome. I enjoy learning things about these bands as I research them.

Always thought it a very under-rated album myself. Anyway, thx for this . . .
