Happy Hump Day!

It was the day a group from Liverpool reached #1 for the first time; a day when an Eagle showed up in Miami; a day when some rascals were in NYC; a day when a father and daughter recorded a #1 hit; a day … WAIT! You can hear all of this and a lot more by playing the medley!

Hopefully after listening, you will be in such a good mood, you’ll have a very wonderful Wednesday and getting over the “hump” will be easy peasy! 🙂

Memories … That’s What We’re All About

    Terrific medley. Loved the last song. Definitely showed how different the Beatles’ music was at the time.
    Thank you, Ray and have a wonderful Wednesday!

      Thanks, Jim!
      When you consider the fact that the Beatles song knocked Bobby Vinton’s “There! I Said It Again” off the top of the charts, it showed music was definitely changing! That last song should also resonate with Sandy Gaither. It’s one of her favorites.
      Have a wonderful day!

    If I weren’t working on taxes I’d write more, next year I’ll have better records of donations made. Thanks for the wonderful Wednesday music 🙂 🙂 Lee & Ted

    It is a wonderful Wednesday thanks to you
    Don’t know why, but Crimson and Clover has always been a fave…never really understood the lyrics, but the arrangement rocked

      Thanks, Mary Helen 🥰
      I never paid much attention to the lyrics because, as you said, the arrangement rocked! Here’s a Rock Factoid. The group had toured with Vice President Hubert Humphrey during his 1968 presidential campaign. Humphrey showed his appreciation by writing the liner notes for the Crimson and Clover album.

    Well, needless to say, this has been a wonderfully wicked experience on a Wednesday. I knew from the first few chords of the first song, that I was hooked! Loved Eddie rabbit back then and still do. And little Peggy March thank you for the good history on that that was fantastic. See we are never too old to learn. We can learn things every single day. That is one thing that I have maintained throughout my life is to remain open minded about things. And of course, I want to hold your hand, says The Beatles! That could’ve stayed on the charts even longer as far as I’m concerned. Love the Beatles. Frank and Nancy Sinatra saying something stupid is always a hit with me. I just love hearing the father daughter duo. there is something about it it’s like Nat King Cole and Natalie. And then of course you took us off in a different direction and brought on ABBA!! Oh my gosh that made me think about my long album that I have of theirs and how I might want to take that out and listen to it again. So that was a thriller, And of course, we all love, Glenn Frey! But I was absolutely so thrilled with the last song, my favorite, Tommy James, and the Shondells and crimson and clover has always been a favorite song of mine. I think I might’ve worn it out, playing it over and over again. Thank you for that!! This was a good one today, in fact, this was excellent.! So, once again, I say, Ray, you’re the best! 🥰

      Thank you, Sandy! 🥰
      I Want To Hold Your Hand was knocked off the top of the charts by She Loves You, and threeks later, Can’t Buy Me Love knocked that song off and stayed on top for six weeks. In total, The Beatles had the #1 songs until May 2!
      p.s. I saved the Shondells for last because of you!
