Summercat by Billie the vision & the dancers

A great song from 2004 from the disc " I Was So Unpopular In School and Now They're Giving Me This Beautiful Bicycle" by Billie the vision & the dancers that thanks to this TV advert is going to be very popular this Summer in Spain. Enjoy the Mediterranean sea and the freedom of our islands this Summer but remember that alcohol can't make you more popular, successful or attractive. Happy Holidays
Visit their website, it's worth it, you'll be surprised by the method to get their songs.
