I listened to this as a teenager. Oh, to be seventeen! I thought as a 12 year old. What endless vistas of sexual promise lay ahead of me… and today being the last day of June, like every year, it comes back around.

The arrangement is striking, strings and piano combining to evoke an otherworldly, sultry heat haze in this song about sensuality, teenage longing and lust, yet despite this dangerous subject matter, the artist and producers kept it well within the mainstream of the day.

“It was a hot afternoon, the last day of June, the sun was a demon…”

Indeed, it was, and is.
