"Seven Days In Sunny June" is the second single from British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai's sixth studio album, Dynamite. Written by lead singer Jay Kay and new keyboardist Matt Johnson, the track is considered to be a throwback to the old acid jazz sound upon which Jamiroquai made its name. The song is about a tale of unrequited love, and peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart.

Music Video[edit]

The video features the band having a pool party in a garden, where they do random things - such as playing with a beach ball, riding minibikes, throwing confetti, as well as having ketchup lowered from a helicopter - as Jay Kay sings the lyrics. However, the word "bomb" in "drop the bomb on me" is cut out, as it - alongside the radio edit - released a month after the 7/7 terrorist attacks in London. Kay changes his clothing 7 times, representing the 7 days of the week - one of the garments being a Peru-national-football-team-inspired jacket. The video ends with Kay on the ground, laughing.
