Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Summer Vacation" by The Party

In 1990 the Disney Channel made a pop band out of some members of its Mickey Mouse Club TV show, calling it "The Party."  It stood for Positive Attitude Reflecting Today's Youth.

Their debut single was called Summer Vacation, an appropriately timed choice for this week:

However, I was a much bigger fan of I Found Love:

And now for the most depressing thing you've ever seen -- the teenage band broke up in 1993, but reunited two decades later to create this video last summer as a bunch of 38-year-olds:

Smart decision by the girl in the hat to bail on the comeback...
