This song was a big hit forty years ago around this time of year when I was heading back for my sophomore year of college. It reminds me of moving into my very first apartment in Coconut Grove, where I shared a 2BR place on Virginia Street for $205 a month. I just drove by that building; I don’t think it rents for that much any more.
Anyway, this is also for my nephew Michael who heads off to his freshman year of college tomorrow. I wish him the best, and I hope there’s a song that he’ll always remember from this summer.
