background
"Jim would record us jamming on a ghetto blaster for hours. He plucked out a guitar melody which became the intro to the song and the rest flowed from there." - Charlie, 24th March 2015

Conceived during the writing sessions in Fife, it was originally known as Summer Song, a title it kept even after officially becoming Someone Somewhere (In Summertime), and being logged with the shorter title by the BBC during one of the band's session recordings.

During the mix, Charlie burst into tears, overwhelmed by the impact of the musci played over the studio's super quality speakers.

The track was written as "Someone Somewere In Summertime" on all formats of the album and as "Someone Somwewhere (In Summertime)" on all formats of the subsequent single. This led to both versions being used on later releases.

After New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) was recorded, Charlie developed a new guitar intro during subsequent live performances. This was later recorded in a studio when the extended mix was being developed. Virgin must have filed the master incorrectly in the vaults, as the album version often appears instead of the extended mix on later reissues.

"I think Someone Somewhere (In Summertime) not only is a great album opener but it's probably the first track of the batch we had written. When I think of New Gold Dream, I think that's the album where Simple Minds arrived and I think the Someone Somewhere (In Summertime) songwriting craft also gives the feeling that we'd arrived - that we'd reached some kind of maturity." - Jim, Sunday Herald interview, 2008.


lyrics
Stay, I'm burning slow,
With me in the rain, walking in the soft rain,
Calling out my name,
See me burning slow.
Brilliant days, wake up on brilliant days,
Shadows of brilliant ways will change all the time.
Memories, burning gold memories,
Gold of day memories change me in these times.

Somewhere there is some place, that one million eyes can't see,
And somewhere there is someone, who can see what I can see.

Someone, somewhere in summertime.
Someone, somewhere in summertime.
Someone, somewhere in summertime.

Moments burn, slow burning golden nights,
Once more see city lights, holding candles to the flame.
Brilliant days, wake up on brilliant days,
Shadows of brilliant ways will change me all the time.

Somewhere there is some place, that one million eyes can't see,
And somewhere there is someone, who can see what I can see.

Someone, somewhere in summertime.
Someone, somewhere in summertime.
Someone, somewhere in summertime.
Someone, somewhere in summertime.
Someone, somewhere in summertime.
