  1. Brings back memories. My favorites were "Eve of Destruction", Wipe Out (danced my butt off to that one) and They're coming to take me away HA HA HE HE. I just laughed at that one. Too funny. Memories what would we do without them?

  2. 1:45 I think any record with the word "Ringo" in it would sell in 1964. Cher even had a minor hit with a record called "Ringo, I love you."; the name on the label was "Bonnie Joe Mason" so people wouldn't think it was a guy singing.

  3. P. F. Sloan wrote "Eve of Destruction" with Steve Barri. They also wrote "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers(1966) and
    "A Must To Avoid" by Herman's Hermits(1966) among others. They also created the studio band The Grassroots. After the
    song "Where Were You When I Needed You" became a minor hit they threw together a band to go out on the road. The
    Grassroots later became one of the best selling bands of the early 70's. Sloan was also a member of the Wrecking Crew
    the elite group of studio musicians who did the actual musical accompaniment on many records in the 60's and 70's.

  4. I remember the song Telstar very well. It was on a Ventures album. I never heard of the tornadoes. There were so many one hit wonders simply because AM radio ruled the airways and hardly anyone had stereos in their homes until soldiers started coming home from VietNam. Most of us that were in our teens could probably name 10 more. The Troggs, Wild Thing, Treat her Right, Roy Head, Bread and Butter, The New Beats, The Archies, Sugar Sugar (the first bubble gum song). Harpers Bazaar, 59th Street Bridge Song (feelin' groovy), The Zombies, Keep her Hangin' On, a remake of the Supremes song. Heck, I could come up with 50 if I wanted to.

  5. Anyone remember "Cast Your Fate to the Wind' by the Sounds Orchestral?. Or "Teen Beat" by an incredible drummer named Sandy Nelson? Or "Stranger on the Shore" by Acker Bilk?

  6. Kiss Him Goodbye has probably gotten more air time at televised, cable, or radio broadcast sports events than it ever did when originally broadcast. The preferred song of about to be winning fans along with We Will, We Will Rock You.

  7. Barry Mcguire only had one pop hit but had a pretty successful career as a Christian rock artist. Saw him in concert in the early 80s. Just him & a guitar. Great show. Very friendly man

  8. Never could stand Barry the Fairy Maguire. Thank goodness only one hit.. with a capitol S… most depressing song of the century.. voice like fingernails on a chalkboard…. is he dead yet ?? …heaven forbid a comeback…
