I wanna go back to when
I was the winner
Way before the rain came
And washed away the sinners
Everyone was someone and
And I could never do any wrong
— From Butch Walker and the Black Widows, Summer of 89
A friend of mine posted this earlier today on Facebook. It’s a new single, Summer of ’89, by Butch Walker and the Black Widows. When I saw it I couldn’t get over here fast enough to post it for you.
This is a such a fun song, a modern day anthem to Generation X. Shades of Bryan Adams and Summer of ’69, not so much. I totally forgot about those dancing flowers.
The single was released in late June, and the album, The Spade, will be released to stores and online August 30.
Butch Walker was born in 1969. Generation X.
