Booker T and the MGs' version of "Summertime" is uncharacteristically slow for them, brooding. Which does nothing to pep up the song for what it's supposed to be, a happy go lucky song from a musical. Instead it's sounding all wicked and dark. Or extremely chill. Maybe that's it, maybe they were stoned.
