  1. That made me smile, MJA! When the world was simpler and I was young.

    Always like that song because the vocals were so clear and melodic.

    RadioMattM, that video was fun! I didn’t watch his show that often, but when he did things like this, it was worth it.

  2. HAVE ANY OF YOU HEARD THE “NEW COUNTRY” MUSIC?? NO MELODY, NO BEAT, LYRICS THAT SOUND LIKE THEY’RE BEING MADE UP AS THEY’RE BEING SUNG, USUALLY BY SOME PUSSY WHO’S WHINING ABOUT A GIRL???

    COMPARE TO THIS GREAT MUSIC POST FROM THE SIXTIES..LIKE HOLLYWOOD, MUCH OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY HAS SADLY LOST THEIR WAY…

    CHANGE MY MIND!!

  3. TimBuktu: If I am not mistaken, that was produced by Sly Stone. A friend and I used to play that many moons ago, me on bass and my friend on guitar. I usually did the singing, such as it was.

    I never thought about the guy going to war. There are many songs where the guy going (or just coming back) is the backdrop of the song.

    On shows such as Shingdig and Hullabaloo, groups used to play live. Here are the Beau Brummels doing Laugh Laugh. I like this because it is easier to dissect the harmony. https://youtu.be/1_GeYgT58d0

  4. I never could verify, but when they were using different artists performing this song for the opening of The Drew Carey show each week…..I swear I heard Tanya Tucker doing a helluva rip roaring job of it.

    Oh yeah, The Seeds. Proto-punk.

    I recently found one of their old hits: I Can’t Seem to Make You Mine.

  6. Vinyl sounded better until you wore-out the groove on the 45 like I did on this song back in the day. One of my favorites.

    So many good songs in the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s.

    It’s since 2000 or 2005 that music has taken a dive.

    I listened to 3 songs on the car radio recently (usually I do not turn on the radio) one by Pink, one by Fergie, and one by some outfit called Riot at the Disco.

    None had a tune, let alone a pretty tune that makes you want to listen to it over and over again. A song has to have catchy tune or I’m tuning out.

  8. Bad Brad, when they played Spirit In The Sky in the midst of the British stoner movie Saving Grace and the guy is outside peeing and the greenhouse where they’re growing dope lights up like a kaleidoscope on steroids and the stoner almost feels like he’s having an epiphany from God. My wife and I were laughing so hard that we lost it in gut busting laughter. My wife and I laughed hysterically at that and the 2 little old English ladies who got stoned thinking they were drinking tea which it wasn’t and got goofy with the googly eyes, laughing hysterically and getting the munchies. It’s a great highly recommended British comedy almost as good as Waking Ned Devine. The character of Doc Martin on PBS was one of the major stoners in this movie.

  10. I was born in Hawthorne California. Life was like Beach Blanket Bingo. Teenagers would strap their surf boards onto their bikes and pedal to the beach. And it was one garage band after another. All beach music. Dick Dale, the Safaris, etc. Some of them were pretty damn good. I always wondered if any of those musicians ever hit it big.
