Summertime Doin' Time (Uptown Dub) by Sublime

If you listen closely, you will hear that a different voice sings summertime. This was Bradley’s friend Michael Happoldt singing it. He had to do so because in order for Sublime to clear the Gershwin sample they had to change their original lyric of “doin' time” to “summertime”. The problem with this was that Bradley Nowell had passed away after the original version, so Happoldt did the change for him. That explains why the title is “Doin' Time”, despite the fact that is never said throughout the song. But the original “doin' time version still exists, it just couldn’t be put on the album.

Or the bracelet? Face it, you feel a chill in your veins
