A SUMMER & SIXTIES PLAYLIST . . . .
Just trying to mix old and new . . .
hopefully you won't go out and drive "crazy" like in days of yore!
I really like this song and it always reminds me of JIM McCLURE - (side note) Jim and I hosted a boy/girl party at his house in Junior High - sadly he and I were the only ones there without “dates”. His mom did make some exceptionally good food for the event though. About the song - it was originally recorded in 1964 but Motown held it, thinking it wasn’t up to their “standards” - until 1967. “Jimmy Mack” proved them wrong and was a big hit for MARTHA & THE VANDELLAS. (Not much of a vid - but good sound)
THE TREMELOES were a group put together by the production company in the U.K. and their name came from the misspelling of “tremolos” (added E) in a news release that happened to stick. So here are a couple of there better known songs of the 60’s - “Here Comes My Baby” and “Silence Is Golden”. (Not much video - good sound)
JACKSON BROWNE isn’t known for releasing “pop” singles as much as he is his cantankerous attitude and “hippie” music. But in 1982 he co-wrote “Somebody’s Baby” for the movie “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” and the song proved to be a popular hit with staying power. (Not much video - good sound)
These two songs go out to ALL of the “young road warriors” out there that drove their cars hard and fast while listening to these tunes blasting out of their tape decks - over and over. FOGHAT gave us “Slow Ride” and HEAD EAST offered up “Never Been Any Reason” - both giving young men everywhere a reason to drive fast (and uhhh . . . go to nudie bars). These don’t have much video, but good sound.
I kept this one on the list - just because I like it. It's the remake of “Baby Don’t Go” by DWIGHT YOAKAM & SHERYL CROW. Turn up the volume and grab your "Honey" - but there really isn’t much of a video.
