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.

In fact, Edwin released many other songs during his career, and remained musically active until 2003, when he passed away.

The Box Tops - The Letter


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...

John Mayall
"Room To Move"
1969

I used to hear this one on the radio. From the wonderfully innovative "The Turning Point" album recorded live at the Fillmore East. The whole album is unique blend of blues, jazz, folk and more.

Once again, NOT a 60s song. This one is from 1958.

You gotta stop assuming that a song is from a specific decade without realizing specifically what year it's from.


(However, singer-actor Richard Chamberlain covered it in 1963.)

There was also a cover of it by Andy Gibb and Victoria Principal in 1981. They were a couple at the time.

Not only that, it has undergone several other cover recordings, as I've read on Wikopedia.
