I got back on here tonight because I couldn't sleep and answered the questions you didn't know or had forgotten and typed for over an hour and none of it posted (was too long, I guess). It looks like some of what I typed would have posted. I had some additional trivia questions on it too. Damn it! All that time wasted and I probably won't remember what I wrote tonight, tomorrow. Here's a few short answers. I had the 8track tape of Crabby Appleton from the album "Crabby Appleton". They were a one hit wonder (or top 40 hit) with a song called "Go Back". I thought the album was good and thought they'd go farther than the one hit and the one album, but they didn't. This was around 1970 or 1971.

The album "Deja Vu" was by Crosby, Stills, and Nash and (sometimes Young) who was with them sometimes and other times not. By the way, do you remember any Neil Young solo hits? Do you remember what other group that (Graham) Nash also performed with and what some of their hits were? Here's another trivia question - What popular group did David Crosby perform with and name a couple of their hits. What band did Stephen Stills perform with before C,S & Y and what was their major hit? What was Stephen Still's major solo hit? This is trivia within trivia. I hope I'm not driving you crazy, but you may think I'm crazy ("You may be right, I may be crazy, but it just may be a lunatic you're looking for" - sound familiar. I think I've got the after midnight manias. By the way, who sang "After Midnight" and what are some of his other hit records. What singing group did he start in and what are at least two of their hits? LOL LOL LOL

It's just another "Manic Monday" (or actually Tuesday, by now) I won't ask. I did have a Tequila drink that my daughter made tonight plus some Cotton Candy type liquor in another drink. Maybe those drinks affected me. Have you ever heard up a cotton candy type liquor? It might have been rum - not sure what it was.

You named more Petula Clark hits than I could remember, but I'd also like to add her first and biggest hit "Downtown" and a couple of her lesser known top 40 hits "Don't Give Up" and (I believe her last top 40 hit called "Kiss Me Goodbye)- I love that song. I also loved "Color My World" and I used to know all the lyrics to that song (and it is such an energetic, happy song). I can only remember the chorus now. It has to have been at least 30 years or more since I've heard that song. I had it on a 45 and it is probably around my house somewhere (scratchy if not warped depending on where I stored it. I almost forgot - Remember "Don't Sleep In the Subway" - one of her hits. She was in a movie once with Peter O'Toole. Do you remember having seen that movie based on a well known novel?

Bubble Gum Songs - Simple Simon Says - 1910 Fruitgum Co. or is it The Ohio Express?
"Yummy, yummy, yummy" - "The Ohio Express
"Quick Joey Small" - I think "The Ohio Express
One, two, three - Redlight" I think the 1910 Fruitgum Co. did that.

I almost forgot about Tommy Roe ("Dizzy" and "Heather Honey" from my junior high days and "The Archies" ("Sugar, sugar) There was the "Tra la la song" by the Banana Splits.

Little Peggy March did "I will follow him" back when I was in the third grade. Remember it now?
lyrics "I love him, I love him, I love him and where he goes I'll follow, I'll follow, I'll follow ... This song was performed by a group of nun actresses in a popular 1990's comedy. Remember that movie?

I tell you as much as I enjoy reminiscing about old songs and old groups, I am going to have and try to sleep. My little grandson, whom I'm babysitting later this morning will be up and at em at 8 or 9 a.m and I'd better get to sleep so I have a fighting chance in keeping a five year old in line this morning. I hope you'll get back on here, later today. I'll try to or will get back another day.

I'm up again, but I didn't get any good sound sleep - probably because I left my medications home last night and am staying at my adult daughter's house. LOL

Some "British Invasion" groups are Herman's Hermit (I'm Into Something Good, Can't You Hear My Heartbeat"?, "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter", "I'm Henry the Eighth (I am), "Silouettes" to name some of their hits.
Another British Invasion band was the Dave Clark Five who had hits "Glad all Over", "Bits and Pieces", "Catch Us If you Can" and others that someone might be nice enough to remind me of.
Another "British Invasion" Group was Gerry and the Pacemakers who had hits "Ferry Cross the Mersey", "How do you do (what you do to me), "Don't Let the Sun Catch you Crying, etc.
Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders came from Britain also and had the big hit "The Game of Love" and The Mindbenders on their own in later years had their hit "A groovy kind of Love" (long before Phil Collins version).
There but can't remember the one song they had out. They had a silly dance when they danced to that song.
Does anyone remember the t.v. shows "Shindig" and
Hullaballoo" or Dick Clark's "Where the Action Is" and of course, American Bandstand?

The Essex's one hit wonder song (and I believe it made it to No. 1 in 1963) was "Easier Said Than Done" - "my friends all tell me go to him, run to him, say sweet, lovely things to him ...Tell him he's the one ... I've got a love so true, yet I'm sad and blue 'cause it's easier said than done.

My favorite all time song by Tommy James and The Shondells is "Crimson and Clover". What does he mean by "Crimson and clover (over and over)? I guess that's just one of those nonsense, but great songs. I also like most all of Tommy James songs such as "Sweet Cherry Wine", "I Think We're Alone Now", "Crystal Blue Persuasion (what does that Mean) "Say I am", and the one's already mentioned on here and some others I can't remember right now. What nonsense songs can you think of? Here's one "Judy In Disquise (with glasses), How about Cream's "White Room" and "Badge"? Ever Hear of "Pictures of Matchstick Men" by the Status Quo? "Inna a Gadda da Vida" was originally "IN a Garden of Eden" - I guess Iron Butterfly's lead singer had had a few too many when that record was recorded. There's plenty of nonsense songs - I hope you all out there will come up with some to remember and that I can come up with more to remember.

Other "The Doors" songs I remember are "Hello, I Love You" and "The Unknown Soldier".

Three Dog night songs include "One" (is the loneliest number - loved that one and "Eli' Coming", "Celebrate" (dance to the music), "One Man Band", "An Old Fashioned Love Song", "Mama Told Me Not to Come", "Easy to Be Hard", and many others that I can't remember right now. Their singers were Cory, Dennis and chuck but can't remember their last names (Dhuck Negron - I Believe.

Loved the Guess Who - a very popular group with songs lie "These Eyes", "No Time", "No Sugar Tonight", "Share the Land", "Clap for the Wolfman", "Guns, guns, guns", "Hang onto your life" and others. Burton Cummings was the lead singer. He later had a top 40 hit on his own without the Guess Who. Know that song?

Another member of the Guess Who went out later on and formed his own band. Remember the name of his band and a couple of their hits?

The Cowsills was a group like the Partridge family, except they were real life brothers and sister and mother. They had one mega hit in 1968 - played over and over (too much) on the radio and is from a Broadway musical. If you guessed "Hair" you guessed right. They had a couple of other top 40 songs "The Rain, The Park and Other Things ("I love the flower girl" and Six is the Number (about 666 being the number written in Revelations).

The Box Tops had the number one record of the year (at least in the Ashland area) called "The letter" (give me a ticket to an aeroplane). They also had a top 40 with "Neon Rainbow" and had a little known song about prostitutes called "Sweet Cream Ladies ("they will love you in the darkness, take advantage of your starkness, they refuse to recognize you in the light") Yes, that was really a song from the late 60's.

Grand Funk Railroad (they later dropped Railroad) and went by simply "Grand Funk" had hits "We're an American Band", "I'm your captain ("I'm getting closer to my home", "Mean mistreater", "The Locomotion" (remake - this is the least favorite of their songs for me). There's bound to be more of their songs that I can't remember right now. Mark Farner was lead singer, Mel(?) was bass player and ?? was the drummer - a three man band.

Prior to the "Saturday Night Fever Days" ("Staying Alive") the Bee Gees had soft songs such as "The New York Mining Disaster of 1942 ("Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?" and "I can't see nobody" and "Words" and "I've got to get a message to you", "Nights on Broadway" "I started a joke" and others that maybe someone, besides me can remember. Maurice Gibb was once married to a singer that had one mega hit. Know who she was and what her hit was?

I forgot to mention the Bee Gees had the song "Lonely Days (lonely nights, where would I be without my woman.

And to finish up (for the time being) the only songs I recall that none of the Beatles wrote, but recorded was "Twist and Shout" and Ringo's "Act Naturally". There's bound to be many more. Help me remember, someone.

You got me - I don't even know who "The Move" are. I remember "The yardbirds" from the 60's (song - "For Your Love). I don't know band they later came to be. You've got me guessing - I need an answer.

I think I'd better try and get in a few winks before my grandson gets up. I'll be back soon. Think of some trivia for me. I'll surely have more trivia for you.
