Thanks to YouTube I have been in deep procastination mode taking a tour back through my younger days.
I never listen to oldies' music stations - I prefer to go no further back than the 80's, but I found some songs I loved when I was much younger. I'm not sure how many out there will remember these ones - but oh man - did they bring back memories. And believe it or not, I could still sing (and just did) many of them word for word
Here are just a few
This was always my favourite Herman's Hermits song. It wasn't as widely popular as some of the other ones - but I loved it
(and keep in mind this was back in the days when gay meant happy)
Here's another one I loved when I was a kid. I didn't found out until much later that Ron's nickname was Hazel - cause of his long (at the time) hair
And oh wow! Did I love this one when I was young and innocent
This is the one I'm most proud of being able to sing word for word without forgetting one single word
I could go on and on - but to spare you my own personal journey down memory lane, I'll just leave a couple more. I don't how long some have been visiting, but a while back I did a post on my crushes of yesteryear. One of the BIG ones I had was on a band in the 60's - Paul Revere and the Raiders. I had posters of this group all over my room - and Mark Lindsay in particular
*sigh* ah memories
(yes - we did used to dance like that. I wasn't quite as good as the go go dancers though.
And the quality isn't as good - but this was my favourite song by them - Hungry - as in I was hungry for Mark Lindsay in my young innocent teenage girl heart.
Katie saw these last night and would you believe she laughed at them? She LAUGHED at my Mark Lindsay! Humph.
(so did I)
And finally - some will know what I'm referring to - this is NOT the pirate and crew I was referring too.
