Summer Wine

Nancy Sinatra on her hit "Summer wine", from 1967, taken from her album "Nancy & Lee". Nancy sings along with Lee Hazlewood.Video clip black and white.

I heard the next one last summer and I was amazed. The male singer is Ville Valo, the vocalist of the famous Finnish group HIM. According to Wikipedia HIM is a rock band from Finland formed in 1991 by vocalist Ville Valo, guitarist Mikko Lindström, and bassist Mikko Paananen. They have released six full length albums to date. As of 2007, they are the first and only Finnish rock band to sell Gold in the United States. I like HIM's music, but since it is rather heavy rock I could not believe Ville Valo could sing like this:

I also found the lyrics for the song. I just love this. It always reminds me of summer.
