Smash Mouth: ‘Walkin’ on the Sun’
In the beginning, 13 years ago (!), when they were 1960s retro cool, before they became a cover band doing soundtracks for cartoons. I always thought this sounds like a lost track from the Zombies (I love the keyboard), so in the retro spirit of this blog, enjoy!

Wikipedia adds:
The song’s opening riff and counter-melody are based on “Swan’s Splashdown” from the 1966 Perrey and Kingsley electronic music album, The In Sound From Way Out!
