    He sure did, was watching him last night on YouTube, it was an old top of the pops performance. :rose:

    It might be just my opinion here, but sixties music in general seems the best. Not that the other decades had their moments. Of cos been born in the sixties might make me bias. :whistle:

    At work have a workmate who’s quite into his music, listening to songs on the radio as a child so can come up with lyrics in a song, not just at the beginning but also in the middle. He also knows the artists. This got me researching songs, particularly songs around when I was born.

    You’re song is on an album I downloaded from Apple called “The Best 60’s collection extra.” With more unusual 60’s hits for example Long John Baldry Mexico (Underneath the ⛅ in ) .

    Probably agree RR although I do like a lot of 70s music. I grew up (well a teenager when music seems to be at its biggest influence) in the 80s but still preferred 60s/70s even back then. I didn’t mind some of the 80s stuff such as Madness but didn’t fall for the peer pressure of liking bands such as Duran Duran although looking back even they did some alright stuff.

    As for the 2000s I think there has been some massive hits such as Drake but no idea how this song/music goes :unsure:

    There is also the matter of owing music nowadays. Before CDs it was just as good to own the record/packaging as the music. Great artwork/photography and also collector items such as picture/coloured disks or booklets/photos/posters within the album. I think Queen’s Jazz was quite a popular one ;-) CDs diminished this and Downloads have totally wiped out any interest for this sort of thing. Most probably why vinyl is back selling so well.

    The LP cover was “part and parcel” of the whole process of a music purchase.

    The sound of a decent analogue hi-fi setup will beat the socks-off of any digital-processed crap that is the mainstay of today.

    I prefer The Righteous Brothers version of You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling to Cilla Black’s which was release briefly before TRB’s hit the UK. For a brief moment in time they were both in the charts together. Cilla’s version dropped away when TRB’s came out.

    Some great lists. But most impressive of all is that Clivexx’s old boss played on Sugar Baby Love.

    See if anyone can guess this song from these lyrics

    The sun is shining, the grass is green
    The orange and palm trees sway
    There’s never been such a day
    In Beverly Hills, L.A.

    i was in awe cormack. I said it was like meeting Lennon McCarthy and Beethoven all in one

    Actually he had a better verifiable story. When the Beatles played that last live gig on the roof of apple he was in town attending an interview and he’s clearly identifiable I. The small crowd below. Just passing by.

    He (like nearly everyone I met in the music business) was a total Beatles nut too

    This always happens to me. I knew the lyrics but couldn’t get the song – so I googled it! Therefore I won’t put the answer up in case anyone else wants a shot.

    I’m tone deaf, can’t sing a note and can’t play an instrument and I’m a Beatle nut (or I thought I was until I went to the Convention in Liverpool one year).
