The perfect summer song, "The Rain, The Park And Other Things" by family singing group The Cowsills, was a massive hit recorded and released in the autumn of 1967, in the aftermath of "the summer of love". The light step of the song and the siblings' extraordinary harmonies make this song a true classic, alongside other songs and artists from the era, such as The Lovin' Spoonful, The Mamas And The Papas and The Beach Boys. "The Rain, The Park And Other Things" certainly weren't there only hit either ("Hair" was equally big chartwise), but it was their best. Puts a big smile on my face every time I hear it.
