Did you ever have to make up your mind?
That wasn’t meant as a question…it was my way of cleverly introducing this post.
Baby-boomers and rock-and-roll fans of all ages probably sang the words while they read them…or they’re humming the tune right now (and probably will be for the next few hours).
Most of you know who sang them back in 1966, or you used to know, but the band’s name is on the tip of your tongue.
For the record…it was The Lovin’ Spoonful.
The Spoonful had a pretty impressive run between ’65 and ’68 which included seven Top 10 hits and another seven in the Top 100.
You might say they were hotter than a match head…
Like many bands they also had their trials and tribulations…
Tomorrow night (Friday October 31, 2014) on my radio program I will have the bass player from the Spoonful – Steve Boone – live in the studio with me.
We’ll be talking about all kinds of stuff, and playing some music in-between topics – beginning at 7:00 pm EST.
Tune in if you believe in magic…
