Summer Song of the Day #16: DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince- Summertime

DJ-Jazzy-Jeff-&-Fresh-Prince-Summertime

Yes, more classics on their way. Again nineties, and this time made by a duo. One of the two is Will Smith, the Fresh Prince.
I did not know this until I was looking for the greatest hits of Will Smith (I wanted a CD with Miami, Gettin’ Jiggy With It, etc.), and there were songs of DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince on the CD!
What? That’s strange, I thought. Well, no, apparently not.
But okay, they have scored a neat 16th place in the Summer Song Of The Day Top 20, with their song Summertime. A real big summer hit!

Number 16: DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince- Summertime

Song of the day: The Who- Pinball Wizard

Who-ultimatecollectionUK

This is a greatest hits album by the Who, one of the best bands which existed and still exist (according to me.)
And almost everyone knows a song by them.

You claim you don’t? Well, do you watch CSI? Any version of it?
If the answer is yes, you know a small part of one of their songs. They use in all three versions of CSI a song made by the Who.
In CSI: Crime Scene Investigation they use Who Are You, in CSI: Miami they use Won’t Get Fooled Again, and in CSI: New York they use Baba O’Riley.
They did many more things. They made the rock opera Tommy, featuring a lot of stars. The Dutch listeners of the Top 2000 know the Ouverture of Tommy in the version by the Metropole Orkest, which is the tune for every hour of the hitlist.
And they made a lot of good songs, like the song of the day is.

They really made too much good songs, it almost was a torture to choose one of them. So I just randomly chose one, which happened to be Pinball Wizard (also from Tommy).
