"Summer Breeze" is a track of the Type O Negative album Bloody Kisses, released in 1993. It is the sixth track on both regular version and digipak edition of the album. This is a cover of Seals and Crofts written by Jim Seals and Dash Crofts that was made slower and heavier while leaving the melody perfectly intact. The track was originally going to be titled "Summer Girl" with different lyrics, but made a normal cover after Seals & Crofts found the lyrics to "Summer Girl" distasteful. "Summer Breeze" is played during the opening credits of the 1997 horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer.
See the curtains hanging' in the window Evening on a Friday night A little light-a-shinin' in the window Lets me know everything's alright Summer breeze makes me feel fine Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind Summer breeze makes me feel fine Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind See the paper layin' on the sidewalk music from the house next door So I walk on up to the doorstep Through the screen and across the floor Summer breeze makes me feel fine Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind Summer breeze makes me feel fine Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind Sweet days of summer - the jasmine's in bloom July is dressed up and playing her tune When I come home from a hard day's work And you're waiting there I don't have a care Not a care in the world See the smile waiting in the kitchen Food cookin' and the plates for two Feel your arms reaching out to hold me In the evening when the day is through Summer breeze Makes me feel fine Blowin' through the jasmine In my mind Summer breeze yeah Makes me feel fine Blowin' through the jasmine In my mind Summer breeze Makes me feel fine Blowin' through the jasmine In my mind
