Released on their 1972 Summer Breeze album, Seals and Crofts’ original version reached No. 6 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart in the US that same year. This song is often referred as one of those relentlessly appealing 1970s harmony-rock anthems. One of the distinctive backing instruments on Summer Breeze is a child’s toy piano. The single reached #6 pop, #4 easy listening on the U.S. Billboard charts in autumn 1972. In 2013, it was ranked No. 13 in Rolling Stone’s Best Summer Songs of All Time.
