Type O Negative – Summer Breeze ( from the Album Bloody Kisses Roadrunner Records 1993)
Originally done by Seals and Crofts
I’m not one hundred percent sure why Type O chose to cover this old gem, but it is one of my favorite covers done by any band, ever. The hippy-like lyrics “Summer breeze makes me feel fine…blowing through the jasmine in my mind” sound surreal and pretty damn cool when being crooned through singer Peter Steele’s (RIP) tormented Gothic style. I first heard this during the opening sequence of the film I Know What You Did Last Summer (Columbia Tristar 1997). I i went out that night and bought the Bloody Kisses album.
