"Seven Days in the Sun" is a song by Feeder, released as the second single from their Echo Park album. It was released in April 2001 and reached number 14 on the UK Singles Chart in April 2001. CD1 of the single features "Just a Day", which was later released as a single.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song featured band members Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose, and the late Jon Lee on a beach shot in Cape Town, South Africa, implementing various methods of reeling in some girls. Grant dresses up as a bike salesman, and gets the girls' passports in exchange for bicycles, Taka, a waiter in order to "demonstrate" his cooking skills, and Jon, in drag, possibly to show them his feminine side. However, it is only Taka that succeeds to impress. Nine years since the video was shot, Feeder released via their Facebook page previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage. The video appeared on the "Indie 500" list on VH2 in 2004 at number 407.[citation needed]
