"All Summer Long" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for the American rock band The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1964 album All Summer Long, and as a single in the UK in February 1965 in place of Capitol's U.S. release, the Beach Boys' version of "Do You Wanna Dance?" -- perhaps a tactical move by EMI in London to avoid taking sales from its existing version by Cliff Richard, "Do You Want to Dance?" As things turned out, "All Summer Long" was not a hit on the now hard-rock British scene, breaking the Beach Boys' string of three previous consecutive UK hits.
