Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Katrina & The Waves - 'Walking On Sunshine'

I used to think maybe you loved me, now, baby, I'm sure
And I just can't wait till the day when you knock on my door
Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
'Cause I just can't wait till you write me you're coming around

If there was an official song of summer to roll out of the 80's it might just be Katrina & the Waves "Walking on Sunshine". The single reached number nine on Billboard's Hot 100 and was easily one of the top songs during the summer of 1985. What's interesting is the fact that this was originally intended to be a ballad. Lead singer Katrina Leskanich decided to belt out the lyrics and well, the rest has been musical history.
