While I like the song, it is also not one I've ever looked up to sing along with. The version I am more familiar with is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmjLpePIz8o

Currently I listen quite a bit to some of the songs of the Four Tops, Men At Work, CCR, George Harrison. Sometimes I like to play the OST to Silent Hill 2 shile I work. Other times I just listen to what Arrow Classic Rock has to offer.

I just got done listening to Harrison's Here Comes the Sun. A brilliant song.

I used to play that one at parties back in my mobile discotheque days! catrub

How about these?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7b4vHGBk9cU

and/or some early Beach Boys or the Monkees?

I have never heard of The Bandwagon or Breakin' Down the Walls of Heartache.

Yes, Tommy James and the Shondells, Beach boys, and Monkees.

Are you familiar with Tommy Roe. I like to sing to some of his songs, particularly these:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCKXxJRgVgc

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNZWPVa9-ZQ

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0i-wfec5HGY

My mind was on this song earlier today but I stayed away from it (until now) as this type of song sometimes sends me into depression:

I think the first album I ever purchased was The Monkees.

I remember that when I'm A Believer was issued as a single my sister and I each rushed out and bought a copy although we were both still living at home, so it was being belted out at both ends of the house! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gv2MLlZKarM thumbsup

I was the youngest of six children so I pretty much had to listen to whatever my siblings listened to on the family record player. I had no records of my own. Then, when I was in my late teens I guess, the others had scattered to different areas of the house or moved out and had their own players (and took all their records with them) so I started using the record player to listen to dictation records while I was trying to learn shorthand. What do you think happened? One of my brothers decided he needed that record player down in the basement with him and that was the end of my dictation/shorthand lessons.

Woe is me lol.

lol (as the eldest of five I did not often have that sort of problem, although my mother did sometimes let my sister get her own way...)

Just popped into my head for no apparent reason ,but is now welcome on my playlist, and it takes us wayyyyyy back:

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?...76BB76DFD9727012D87076BB76&FORM=VIRE

Actually, it just occurred to me that it played on an episode of Supernatural and that's why it's in my head.

Good stuff hagatha, although I tended to prefer some of the other stuff by individual members of Traffic, in particular Dave Mason as well as Steve Winwood of course

More watching than listening perhaps but the BBC is running a series of four programmes "My Life as a Rolling Stone" which I am enjoying, with some great archive footage

She has a wonderful voice. I'll keep an eye on her. Hopefully she makes a go of it, with that talent.

A cool album I had missed until now by one of my wife Linda's favourite performers Michael McDonald https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8Lpw39GxwbMSWc86ueggzMan33DvlLVi

John showed me one of those a while back. I can see that I'd watched half of it already a while back. Weird and wonderful.

I had found them searching for the GoAway bird (which I remembered from my African upbringing) because Linda would not believe it existed - now we tease each other with its call as a light-hearted negative response in arguments! lol

I had to go on a road trip recently for some medical appointments, which is the perfect opportunity to catch up on old favourites.
This was one album that featured https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMNMmvIC2uGbPFFA0xCO5003NgyjTvLiO. An excellent album, and while Come On Eileen is the song that most would likely know the band for, songs from this album like Geno and I'm Just Looking are easily its equal (the latter is sultry good). I loved the brassiness involved, but also enjoyed their more stringsy aftermath.
And I am sure having listened that it tripped a recollection that a bit of one of their songs was used as the theme for a British tv show?

Flotsam, a great band/album and you are right about the TV theme (although I had to google it to find out) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXtq7KVi5SM

Meanwhile, my attention has just been caught by the rather promising new Paolo Nutini album https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJJOQ6ReMwA

Thanks for the info Lex. I vaguely remember the show but could tell you almost nothing about it.
The Nutini track is hitting the mark. Off to check out the rest!

The Go-away bird! I remember Go-away birds. We used to see them on our travels. I can't remember if they were on the coast, though.
