Subject: Your 60's Song Of The Day

Written By: AmericanGirl on 11/10/18 at 2:26 pm

Let's give a "song of the day" for the 60's decade a chance and see how this goes.  I'll start.

The "Pre-Fab Four", better known as the Monkees, had a terrific string of hits in the mid/late 60s.  This one always had a good feel to it

Actually it wasn't a TV movie, it was a theatrical release in 1976 starring Robby Benson in the titular role and it was pretty bad. Due to no fault of Benson's, who has proven himself a capable actor over the years. The song is so abstract that putting a conventional Hollywood storyline to it just didn't work. Despite the bad script the movie was a reasonable success. Back circa 1976 there was a whole trend of turning country songs into movies.

"Crystal Blue Persuasion" by Tommy James & The Shondells (1969)
Personally my favourite from this band.


That song has an interesting background, and it's one you might not immediately think of when you think of this song.

From Wikipedia:

In a 1985 interview in Hitch magazine, James said the title of the song came to him while he was reading the Biblical Book of Revelation:

I took the title from the Book of Revelations in the Bible, reading about the New Jerusalem. The words jumped out at me, and they're not together; they're spread out over three or four verses. But it seemed to go together, it's my favorite of all my songs and one of our most requested.

According to James's manager, James was actually inspired by his readings of the Book of Ezekiel, which (he remembered as) speaking of a blue Shekhinah light that represented the presence of the Almighty God, and of the Book of Isaiah and Book of Revelation, which tell of a future age of brotherhood of mankind, living in peace and harmony.

Many listeners thought "Crystal Blue Persuasion" was a drug song advocating the use of "crystal meth" (methamphetamine), while on the West Coast. At the time of the song's release there were several popular types of high quality blue-colored LSD tablets in circulation—some listeners generally assumed James was referring to "acid". In 1979, noted music writer Dave Marsh described it as "a transparent allegory about James' involvement with amphetamines."

I wasn't sure if I should put this in the 60s or the 70s category. It was released and was a hit in Europe in 1969 but didn't reach these shores in the US until 1971. I decided to go with the original release date. It caused a fair amount of controversy in it's day. Even the Pope got involved.

Waist Deep In The Big Muddy
Pete Seeger
1967

This version from the Smothers Brothers Show in 1968. The Smothers Brothers had invited Seeger on to sing this song but the censors at CBS objected to it and refused to allow it to be aired. The Smothers Brothers continued to fight for Seeger to be allowed to perform it on their show, and eventually the censors relented and Seeger returned and performed it on February 25, 1968.

Nice. I absolutely love Chris Hillman's latest album "Bidin' My Time" which was produced by Tom Petty and released just a few short weeks before Petty died. One of the best albums I've heard in ages and ages. You owe it to yourself to check it out. Hillman is a musician's musician.

Nice one. That song was the last number one hit of the 60s. It was listed as number one in the December 27, 1970 issue of Billboard. It was the final single Diana Ross released with the Supremes, but ironically enough no Supremes are on it except for Ross. Typical Motown move. It's Johnny Bristol doing the male vocal, and other house Motown singers doing the backups. Diana Ross launched her solo career in January, 1970.

Speaking of Ed Ames AND "Windmills of Your Mind", a while back I was watching an old episode of the "Ed Sullivan Show" from the late 60s on the "Decades" network that airs old programming like that.  Ed Ames was on, and in what seemed like an attempt to be "current" or "relevant", he sang a rather unusual song I had never heard called "Changing Changing" which I thought sounded like it was trying to be "Windmills of Your Mind".  It also appears to me to have a number of drug references, not the least of which is "trading gold dust in for mushrooms". Here is is.

If you are bored with the Animals version, I suggest you seek out other versions of this oft-covered traditional song. The Animals are by no means the only version, and not necessarily even the definitive version. Seek out Dave Van Ronk's version, upon which Bob Dylan based his own 1961 version. Joan Baez did it in the early 60s. In 1970 a Detroit band called Frijid Pink had a big hit with it in a psychedelic arrangement that returns the song to its (presumably) original 4/4 timing (as in Van Ronk's version), rather than the Animal's unique 6/8 time signature. Another notable version is Dolly Parton's 1981 version where she gets lyrically quite specific of the song's original theme of a "fallen woman" or woman living a life of prostitution:

"There is a house down in New Orleans
Down in the Vieux Carre
A house they call the rising sun
Where love and money are made
My father he was a gambler
Mother died when I was young
And I've worked since then to pleasure the men
At the house of the rising sun"

The Animals are by no means the only version, and not necessarily even the definitive version. Seek out Dave Van Ronk's version, upon which Bob Dylan based his own 1961 version. Joan Baez did it in the early 60s. In 1970 a Detroit band called Frijid Pink had a big hit with it in a psychedelic arrangement that returns the song to its (presumably) original 4/4 timing (as in Van Ronk's version), rather than the Animal's unique 6/8 time signature. Another notable version is Dolly Parton's 1981 version where she gets lyrically quite specific of the song's original theme of a "fallen woman" or woman living a life of prostitution:

"There is a house down in New Orleans
Down in the Vieux Carre
A house they call the rising sun
Where love and money are made
My father he was a gambler
Mother died when I was young
And I've worked since then to pleasure the men
At the house of the rising sun"


I didn't say I didn't like it; I just said that even after more than half a century of popularity, the song still tends to get more than its share of radio airplay. However, I am just fine with listening to it.

Exactly. He seems to have the tendency of assuming that a song came out in a certain decade without knowing specifically what year it came out.

Interesting. I actually never knew that he recorded any solo stuff at that early date. (But then again, he was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as a solo artist in 1994, which meant that he must've been musically active in 1969.)

Close, but not 100% correct. Stewart actually had a record deal as a solo artist in 1969 BEFORE he joined the Faces. But there was some contractual sort of delay, so while he was waiting to make his album (or for the album to be released, maybe) he went ahead and joined the Faces, who had recently morphed from Small Faces, fronted by Steve Marriott who went on to join Humble Pie (its like a big chess game!). So Stewart had a concurrent solo career right from the get go when he joined the Faces. If you listen to those early, GREAT Rod Stewart albums (the first four or so, before the quality took a sharp decline starting in 1975), they might as well BE Faces albums. They are all on there, and Ron Wood (who had also been in the Jeff Beck Group) is especially prominent.

I LOVE that song (The Flesh Failures) and usually brings tears to my eyes. It is just so powerful. The 5th Dimension's version of it just doesn't cut it.

BTW, Diane Keaton was also in the original cast. 


Several years back, we went to a production of Hair at the local college. Excellent production-they even included the nudity. We sat next to a former colleague of Carlos' (who is a former friend-long story). That song came on and of course I just started bawling my eyes out. The guy started laughing at me for crying. At least Carlos didn't. He knows that I cry at movies-and so does he. In fact, there have been times when we will cry together at something we watch.

Because his other song, "25 Miles", was 1969.

Good find, Howard!  This is a long time favorite of mine from 1967.  :)

I actually like lip-synched performances of songs (and post them often), because we get to see the performers "perform" while we're listening to the studio version of the song.  Yes, live is great - but sometimes I really want to hear the studio version of a song...

They weren't' allowed to sing it on the Ed Sullivan show either. Mick Jagger had to famously sing "let's spend some time together".  During the Doors appearance on the Sullivan show Jim Morrison wasn't quite so cagey. Told that he was forbidden to sing the "girl we couldn't get much higher" line from "Light My Fire" and that he had to change it to "girl we couldn't get much better" (which makes no lyrical sense at all), Morrison looked straight into the camera during the live broadcast and sang "HIGHER" as clear as day. The Doors were promptly banned from ever performing on The Ed Sullivan Show again.  Big deal, it didn't hurt their career any.

I know, but at least the onair staff gave the listeners a headsup that it was going to happen (but they didn't know for sure when at first; however, once they did find out the zero hour, they mentioned it over the air and planned for it). And after it did, a Facebook group was created for fans of the station. And there is activity on there every single day, which is good.

But he re-recorded it in 1961 in-stereo for his album The Nat King Cole Story.

From Wiki: Cole recorded the tune anew in a stereo version of the Riddle arrangement, for the album The Nat King Cole Story (1961).


However, I do agree that his solo version of the song should be posted on the earlier thread, since his very original version of the recording was from 1952, as you said. O0

No, it was originally recorded in 1966 by a gospel group the Art Reynolds Singers. Art Reynolds wrote it. Clarence White, who would be in the Byrds by 1969, was at the original session and heard it then. He suggested the Byrds record it.

By the way, did you ever notice the Harrison-composed instrumental BRIDGE to the song which gives BADGE it's name, also shows up in other Beatle -related places, such as the intro to "Ringo's "It Don't Come Easy". It's also in McCartney's "Listen To What the Man Said" and at least a few other songs as well. There's just something very Beatle-ish about that progression, and they tended to use it a lot.

As you point that out, I can see it and concur - but hadn't noticed before.  Cool!

About Badge, as I recall the story goes, George Harrison and Eric Clapton were together working to finish the yet unnamed song for Cream's upcoming album.  Harrison was writing notes on some paper, not exactly neatly, and as Harrison wrote "Bridge" on the paper to make notes about the song's bridge, Eric Clapton misread it (upside down) and asked "what is that - Badge?"  ;D

Bob Dylan
"Lay Lady Lay"
1969
This song was originally intended for the movie "Midnight Cowboy" but Dylan didn't get it to them soon enough (probably on purpose, that's the way he is) so they went with Harry Nilsson's version of Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin" instead.

In numerous interviews Grace Slick said she wrote "White Rabbit" as a reaction to what she felt were drug references in "children's books" she read or was read to as a child. It was a very 1960s kind of attitude. "What?? You tell us not to take drugs? What about that stuff you read to us when we were little?". She was pretty perceptive about it. In "Alice In Wonderland" and/or "Through The Looking Glass" there are several such references. Alice drinks what appears to be an intoxicating beverage ("drink me"), eats small cakes with currants (pills) which make her literally "high", etc. A caterpillar is smoking a hookah and speaking in a "languid voice", not to mention he's sitting on a mushroom. Oh, it goes on and on. In "Peter Pan", "fairy dust" (a white powder) gets sprinkled on the kids and they literally start flying around the room. In "Wizard of Oz" they fall asleep in a field of poppies (opium), are woken up by snow (cocaine).

It is pretty clear that the "Alice" books and "Peter Pan" in particular are something more than children's stories. She may have extrapolated the rest of it. But it makes for a very interesting and innovative song.

Not sure I agree with "Peter Pan" but definitely "Alice". I ALWAYS thought that the "Alice" books were written for adults. Whoever decided that they were children's stories is beyond me. My dad always had a copy of both books in his library. When he passed away, I added his books to my library.

What was funny about the song White Rabbit, I always knew it was about drugs but then when I was in my early 20s, I really listened to the lyrics and THEN realized the references to "Alice in Wonderland." Yeah, I was a late bloomer. lol.

Fun!  I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with a musician who played for him on Facebook.  Based on what I discovered, Joe Brown seems quite the character.  :)

After doing a little research (now that I have time), I found out that Rupert Holmes did arrangement on the Cufflinks album (not too sure if he worked on the song Tracy or not) but he did some lead singing on the Cufflinks second album. I KNEW there was a connection there.

I prefer to listen to the album of Hair (which I was listening to it last week-AGAIN). So much better than the Fifth Dimension, The Cowsills (Hair), Oliver (Good Morning, Starshine), & Three Dog Night (Easy To Be Hard). While I love all those performers for some of their things but they just can't do it better than the original cast of the play.

Technically speaking, Steve Winwood's next band after Spencer Davis Group was Traffic, in 1967. Traffic briefly disbanded in 1969 which is when the short-lived Blind Faith happened. By 1970 Traffic had reformed, but without Dave Mason.

O0 Good info!  I always thought Traffic began after the short-lived Blind Faith...


Traffic (being Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Dave Mason and Chris Wood) made three albums between 1967-1969. Two of them are absolute classics, "Mr. Fantasy" (1967)  and "Traffic" (1968) and one, "Last Exit" (1969) is cobbled together from bits and pieces, B sides, live tracks, etc, but I like it quite a bit as well. It's one of those kinds of oddball albums that used to exist. Traffic fell apart in 1969 and that's when Winwood formed Blind Faith with Clapton. There was something about the "supergroup" hype that doomed Blind Faith from the start, and they quickly disbanded after one album and tour. Winwood began what was planned to be a solo album called "Mad Shadows", but partway through the proceedings he invited Capaldi and Wood to contribute and Traffic was reborn as a trio with the masterpiece "John Barleycorn Must Die" in 1970. They carried on until 1974 with various additional changing members. And what of Dave Mason? At the same time Traffic were doing "John Barleycorn" he moved to Los Angeles and began his first solo album "Alone Together" which is simply one of the most magnificent albums of the rock era. And the first pressing on Blue Thumb Records was done on swirly colored vinyl. No two are alike.

1969

Bert Sommer was one of the lesser known performers at Woodstock. His played on the first day and his performance of this Paul Simon song is said to have elicited the first standing ovation of the festival. The version here is from his album "Inside Bert Sommer". He was also in the original Broadway cast of "Hair".  He once said "I was in two of the biggest events of the 60s, Woodstock and 'Hair' and nobody knows me". He died in 1990.

Yes, there is some darkness in the song, it is not all "rah rah". That was very much the tenor of the times. There was an ambivalence about things. Movies reflected this also. The hero was not always a completely good guy, or was deeply conflicted. Things were not tied up in a neat ribbon. ("Three Days of the Condor", for example).

Indeed the period of 67ish-73ish was the heyday of the "Protest" song - and we liked it  ;)

Since today is the 50th anniversary of the Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin moon landing, I thought I'd select a song that has "moon" in the title. And I can think of a few that came out in the 60's.

My selection is "Blue Moon" by the Marcels, from 1961.

I saw him in concert-TWICE. Not saying that I am a BIG fan and did not seek out to see him, but I was basically in the right place & the right time. Once in the '70s when he was touring with Debby Boone. I had a friend who wanted to go see them but didn't want to go alone. I said, "Why not." I saw him again about 10 years ago or so when he was touring with Billy Joe Royal during their "Raindrops & Boondocks" tour. It was a fund raiser for the local firefighters so we went.

Even though the song was written in the 1950s, it is from the 1961 film West Side Story. I just love this song for it takes a phrase from the slow movement of Beethoven's 'Emperor' Piano Concerto, which forms the start of the melody. and also a longer phrase from the main theme of Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.

Yeah it's a good song. Oddly enough, it had actually been sung by another girl-group, The Blossoms (fronted by Darlene Love, who performed the lead vocal), but producer Phil Spector credited it to The Crystals; however, at the time of the recording, the real Crystals were touring the East Coast. Yet Mr. Spector decided to credit the recording to The Crystals, even though that band's lead vocalists couldn't come close to imitating Darlene Love.

I for one still like listening to it. :)

This gem almost single-handedly turned me into a "Motown collector" during the late 1970's...

Smokey Robinson & Miracles - More Love (1967)  :)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztGE8PfZ3hA

The "Motown collector" bit is a long story.  I'll preface it with this, though - as a college student I lived in a dorm and my friend across the hall was playing the Miracles' Anthology that she borrowed from the dorm library.  At the time there weren't any "oldies" stations to speak of, so I didn't have opportunity to hear 60's music that often.  I just flipped when I heard the song "More Love" and expressed surprise that it was so familiar yet unfamiliar.  A couple more gems I heard from her turntable convinced me.  After my friend returned the album, I hurried to the library to check it out.  And I played it.  And I renewed my checkout with the library.  And I played it.  And played it.  After about 3 months of this, the library said to me "why don't you just go buy the album"?  :-[  As embarrassed as I was, they were right - and that's where it started...

(Incidentally, in the late 70's hardly anyone was collecting Motown records - I'd often find really cool stuff in the 50 cents bin at the used record store, much to my delight.)

I saw it in a movie theater in 1976. It really isn't very good. Despite starring decent actors such as Robbie Benson and Glynnis O'Connor, the song is just too vague and abstract to base a movie with a linear plot on. The movie tries to fill in the holes the song leaves open with, in my opinion, very unsuccessful results. The very mystery of the song is it's strongest point.

That is true, he wrote LOTS of songs, not just his own (or that he was known for at least performing). And yes, some of the songs he wrote and performed were also later recorded by other performers. (One such example is, "Mr. Tambourine Man", which he wrote and recorded in 1965 for his album Bringing It All Back Home; The Byrds also recorded a version of it that same year and took it to the top of the charts.)

James Taylor

1968

From James Taylor's solo debut and one and only album on the Beatles' Apple Records label. He was 20 at the time. George Harrison, of course, appropriated the title of this for his own famous song "Something".

It was released in 1969.  It wasn't popular, though, until 1970.  That's natural - as an illustration, say a new artist releases a song two or three weeks from now (in December), but it takes several weeks (say February) for the song to get traction and become popular.  Then people would think of it as a 2020 song since that is when it became popular, even though it was first released in 2019.

Similar to "The Brady Bunch". It first premiered in the 1969 Fall season, but got no traction at all until the 70s. Nobody ever thinks of "The Brady Bunch" as a 1960s thing, even though it had it's start the 60s. It is, however, thought of as a definitive 70s phenomenon.

So if something was to be released in 1969, it most likely won't be popular until the 1970's? Why is that?  ???

Well, it depends on the time of year the release happens plus other factors.  In 1969 there was no social media that could turn a newly released song (by an unknown artist in this case) into an overnight smash.  So it was very normal for a song to take weeks to get heard and evaluated by industry pros, find its way onto radio station playlists, (sometimes) get aired on American Bandstand or some similar outlet, get to the place where the public hears it on the air the first time, then the public hears it on the air again, etc. etc.  This process often takes weeks especially for a new artist - who would consider themselves very lucky if their song doesn't peter out somewhere along the way.  Remember there was heavy competition for those precious on-air seconds.  Fortunately for Norman Greenbaum, his song was a winner.

That's right, that kinda thing happens a lot at the end of a calendar decade. In fact, there are several instances of a song being released in one country (or other part of the world) in a year ending in '9', but not getting to the U.S. until early the following year. (One example that readily comes to mind for me is "All Around The World" by Lisa Stansfield, which was a big international hit in most countries in 1989, but not popular in the U.S. until early 1990 (as a hand-me-down, so to speak).)



That's natural - as an illustration, say a new artist releases a song two or three weeks from now (in December), but it takes several weeks (say February) for the song to get traction and become popular.  Then people would think of it as a 2020 song since that is when it became popular, even though it was first released in 2019.

The super rare LONG version! The 1973 double album compilation "Buffalo Springfield" on Atco Records is the ONLY place this can be had. It was never even on CD. This long version does not appear on either the Buffalo Springfield box set or the excellent Stephen Stills box set "Carry On" from a few years back. The standard shorter version appears on both. Apparently Stephen Stills, who wrote the song, doesn't care for this long version so he never pushed for it's inclusion on the box sets. I did see him do this song with Judy Collins a year or so ago, and I've seen him do it with CSN.

Well, you're gonna laugh - or cry.  I intentionally posted the long version since that's what I just digitized, but I wasn't aware that version was rare.  The one I digitized was actually from a combo album (think "K-Tel" but minus the massive quality loss).  It was a 1974 "Warner Special Products" album, volume 2 of "Superstars of the 70's", a collection entitled (oddly enough) "Heavy Metal".  A rather eclectic collection of rock songs, few of which qualify in my book as "metal".  This collection includes the long version of "Bluebird".

This song was written in 1931. Pete has recorded it a few times over the decades with the Weavers. This one was recorded in 1967 and it my favorite version of it.

Which Side Are You On-Pete Seeger.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XEnTxlBuGo

I have mentioned this a few times. I have always felt like Pete was a family friend. Our paths has crossed so many times. My father & brother were working in local theatre and Pete did a fundraising show (for free). I have a copy of the letter thanking him for doing the show (1965). He also appeared in my yearbook because he used to come to my school from time to time. And here is a pic of my step-father with Pete around 1979-1980. I'm sure there are other pics of him floating around in my family.

The thing is about Pete, he ALWAYS acted like you were his friend even if he didn't really know who you were-like the day that Pic was taken. My parents just happened to run into him that day. However, we saw him just a few days before when he was giving a local concert (he did that a lot) so he might have remembered them from that.

I for one have heard this version a few times and realize that the title poses a question here. (In fact, former radio station 100.3 The Sound played it several times, especially on occasions when they played songs alphabetically - in which case they would follow it with Joe Cocker's cover, which was officially titled "Feeling Alright".)

It was the Joe Cocker version that set the template for all others that followed. The funny thing is that ever since the Cocker version even the song's composer Dave Mason plays the Cocker arrangement!

Traffic
"Feelin' Alright?"
1968

Another of Dave Mason's Traffic songs. People seem to know every last version of this song except the original one here. They don't realize it started life as a somewhat down-tempo song. Keep in mind the title has a question mark. It poses a question "are you feeling alright? I'm not feeling to good myself".  Later cover versions became anthemic,  asserting "I'm feeling alright!" and all nuance was lost.


O0 Have heard the original and some covers - love the feel of the original!

^ I'd hear this occasionally on oldies stations (when they were around) - I found it slightly odd, but not in an over-the-top way.  IMO there were plenty of other songs from that time that seemed "a little odd" (despite that I regard '67 as one of the best music years ever).  :)

Often times, the U.S. seems to get certain international songs as hand-me-downs from other parts of the world, such as U.K., and usually in consecutive years. For example, a song that's a hit in UK or Canada in the year n will get to the U.S. in the year n+1 and become a hit; this was especially true in the 1990s and beyond.

This discussion reminds me of a thread that was created in More Than A Decade a while back: http://www.inthe00s.com/index.php?topic=58339.0

Wait a minute...I thought Keith DREAMED the riff to "Satisfaction".

"One night, in 1965, Keith Richards was lying face down on his bed in London, England.
He had passed out after a night of partying.
When he woke up in the morning, he noticed that the new cassette tape he had put in the Phillips recorder he always kept beside his bed had run out to the end.
So he rewound it, and listened.
There he heard two minutes of an interesting guitar riff.
He didn't remember writing the chords, but he must have woken up from a dream and recorded it.
He knew that because when he played the tape back, he could hear himself grab his guitar, play the riff a few times, and drop the guitar pick - which was followed by 40 minutes of snoring.
Eventually, he gave the tape to Mick Jagger and asked him to write the words."

It is the first time I have heard this version. I spent the duration of this song trying to work out who the back vocals is, so far not a clue.


The musicians are Clem Cattini on drums, Big Jim Sullivan on guitar and John Paul Jones (yes, from led Zeppelin) on bass. I'm not sure who plays the organ. The background vocals sound to me like it's Donovan singing harmonies plus maybe another person or two. The reason this version exists is because when Epic Records was putting together this greatest hits album they could not get the rights to "Catch the Wind" or "Colours" which were from another label. So he re-did them. Very much more a "1968" style than the original "1965" style. "The 1968 "Catch the Wind" is absolutely GORGEOUS.

He turns 74 today. So does Dave Mason, who is more commonly associated with the 1970s (at least as a soloist), but he started out as a member of the band Traffic, which got started in the late 1960s.


I'm just hitting the jackpot today. I LOVE Dave Mason. Here's his rare 1968 solo single "Little Woman" backed by the band Family. Very unique "olde English" sound.

You're the second person that ever said that to me. A friend I turned on to this version years ago said it. It's not a female, it's Donovan himself. He had a tremendous falsetto in those days. And no credits (unfortunately) appear on the album.

It comes with a 12X12 booklet of photos. It's a great compilation. But HERE'S the confusing part. The original vinyl album contained the longer, slower re-recordings of "Catch the Wind" and "Colours". They are great versions. But when the album was re-issued on CD (at least the later versions of the CD), it replaced the re-recordings with the original 1965 versions. This is a bit counterproductive as those two superb versions are what made the greatest hits album unique in the first place. NOW if you want the re-recordings, once known as the "greatest hits versions" you have to get them on the CD of the "Hurdy Gurdy Man" album which includes them as bonus tracks. Confused yet?  I know it's kind of a moot point now that pretty much everybody streams, but I think the same rule of thumb follows on Spotify and the rest as to where to find the re-recordings. The re-recordings are now often designated as "the 1968 versions".

It was on this day (May 6th 1965), in their Clearwater, Florida hotel room, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards worked out the opening guitar riff of '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' following Richard's purchase of a Gibson fuzz-box earlier that day. The song is considered to be one of the all-time greatest rock songs ever recorded. In 2004 Rolling Stone magazine placed 'Satisfaction' in the second spot on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.


Wait a minute...I thought Keith DREAMED the riff to "Satisfaction".

"One night, in 1965, Keith Richards was lying face down on his bed in London, England.
He had passed out after a night of partying.
When he woke up in the morning, he noticed that the new cassette tape he had put in the Phillips recorder he always kept beside his bed had run out to the end.
So he rewound it, and listened.
There he heard two minutes of an interesting guitar riff.
He didn't remember writing the chords, but he must have woken up from a dream and recorded it.
He knew that because when he played the tape back, he could hear himself grab his guitar, play the riff a few times, and drop the guitar pick - which was followed by 40 minutes of snoring.
Eventually, he gave the tape to Mick Jagger and asked him to write the words."

-https://www.cbc.ca/radio/undertheinfluence/how-keith-richards-wrote-one-of-the-biggest-rock-songs-in-history-in-his-sleep-1.4749094


There are literally hundreds of interviews with Keith with variations on that basic story.
May 12th 1965, The Rolling Stones recorded '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' at RCA Hollywood studios. Keith Richards had come up with the guitar riff in the middle of the night a week earlier. It gave the band their first number 1 single in the US.

What we need to find out is when did The Rolling Stones arrive in the U.S.A. in 1965?

From wiki:

"The Rolling Stones' 1st American tour of 1965 was actually their third American tour, having toured the US twice in 1964. This tour included their first concert dates in Canada. The tour commenced on 23 April and concluded on 29 May 1965. On this tour, the band supported their album The Rolling Stones, Now!."

With the Stones playing Clearwater, Florida on May 6th, it looks the sleeping Keith Richards was at the hotel, not at his home in London, England.

J.P. Rags
"If It's Tuesday This Must be Belgium"
1969

Title song from the classic 1969 comedy movie. The movie is a scream if you haven't seen it. Every mid-century actor in the book is in it. The song was written by Donovan although he never officially released a version of his own. Some people used to think the oddly named "J.P. Rags" was a pseudonym for Donovan (they do sound SLIGHTLY alike) but apparently it's a real person.

I had just moved in with Carlos when I went to Disneyland for the first (and only) time about 20 years or so (has it been THAT long?)-complements of my sister. Carlos was showing me around saying we had to go on this ride and that ride and It's A Small World is one of those rides. Standing in line and hearing that song over and over and over and over again was bad enough. I felt really bad for the workers. I'm sure at night when they are in bed, they hear that song in head. This one little boy was afraid but they kept ensuring him that it wasn't scary. They were telling him that they were like Barbie dolls singing to him. lol.

It was there when I started my magnet collection. I wanted a souvenir, something to say that I was there but not too big. When I saw a magnet, I said, "That's it!" Now, my collection is HUGE!

I was disappointed that we didn't get to ride the teacups-the ride I REALLY wanted to go on but by time we got to them, it was getting late. When we were leaving, I thanked Carlos for taking me because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. He said to me, "I am so glad that you had a great time and if you ever want to go again...TAKE SOMEONE ELSE BECAUSE I HATE AMUSEMENT PARKS!" My jaw dropped. He never let on once that he hated them. I think I loved him more at that moment because he went because he knew that I really wanted to go and he made sure that I had a great time and didn't spend the time saying, "I hate this".

Actually the Young Rascals became the Rascals in 1968. But that's only because they had ORIGINALLY been the Rascals when the band was formed in 1965. But at that time there was some other band named the "Harmonica Rascals" and they didn't like another band being called "The Rascals". So The Rascals became The "Young Rascals" until it was cool to go back to being just The Rascals. Get it?  :D 

Something sort of similar was the case with Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention which started calling themselves just "The Mothers" circa 1970. But Zappa's name for the band from day one had ALWAYS been "The Mothers" but the record company objected to such a name for some reason. So, since they needed a new name and necessity is the mother of invention, they became the Mothers Of Invention until it was cool for Zappa to go back to calling the band The Mothers again. Get it?  :D

And of course its nothing at all like the Small Faces (with Steve Marriott) who morphed into pretty much an entirely different group when they became the Faces (with Rod Stewart). Get it?  :D

The lead vocal was performed solo by Bobby Hatfield, who later recorded other versions of the song credited solely to him. According to his singing partner Bill Medley, they had agreed to do one solo piece each per album. Both wanted to sing "Unchained Melody" for their fourth album, but Hatfield won the coin toss.IYj2hex99gY

Oh, my sister recently sent me a scanned signed pic of Pete (that was either in my dad's or my brother's possession) that said, "To the (our last name) children". I did not know that existed. I knew Dad worked with him on a local show once (that Pete did for free).

Sometime in the '80s, I went to see Tommy James & the Shondells at a big outdoor festival with my sister & her family in Tulsa. When they started singing "I Think We're Alone Now," my niece and her friend who were 12 at the time, "They stole this from Tiffany." There was a chorus of us who said to them, "No, Tiffany stole it from them."

I don't say "happy birthday in heaven" myself, because I am not sure there are birthdays in heaven. I mean, when you're in that advanced a realm, or consciousness (or whatever it is) something as mundane as birthdays are probably insignificant. Keep in mind, when you are there you are no longer "born". In fact you are "unborn". But I suppose it's as good a shorthand as any to indicate for our purposes here that someone is deceased.  :)

Yeah, it's more a way for those of us still earth-bound to pay homage to those who've gone before us.  A nod to the "Rock and Roll Heaven" concept, if you will.

(As a Christ follower there's a lot that I firmly believe - and also don't know - about the actual Heaven.  I don't presume to know whether birthdays are celebrated in Heaven or not.)

I'll continue using this terminology, though - hopefully this clears up what I mean by it.

Tim Buckley was always deep. He was the father of Jeff Buckey although don't think they really knew each other. You know how those 60s rock stars had kids strewn all over the place. :o 

Funny how they both died so young. Tim was 28 and Jeff was 30. Tim also appeared on the very last episode of the Monkees (who you just posted) playing "Song For A Siren". There seemed to be no real context for it and I'm not sure what he was doing there as he was a bit, uh, heavier than them. But the 60s had so much mix 'n' match like that. Remember that Jimi Hendrix opened for the Monkees too.

Although his name was well known, he never really received wide mainstream success in the 60s and early 70s, before his untimely death in 1975. His music was just a little too "out there", I guess. I bought his records, but he was more of a cult figure (though I don't recall we used that phrase back then).  "Morning Glory" was probably the song of his that got the most airplay.

Vertigo hit me once again today which makes this song VERY appropriate. 

Dizzy-Tommy Roe (1969)

I think it was one of my sisters who had this record and used to play it all the time when either it was my mother or father said, "This song is making me dizzy."

A song from my youth too, and my sister had the single too.
