When I was in my 20's when "Worst that could happen" became one of my personal favorites as did the reinvented Johnny Maestro. One day one of my friends asked about the scar around Johnny's mouth. I recall telling him "that must be the time Johnny walked home from the Bronx at 2:AM."

They also had a good one with "Blessed is the rain."

I think they destroyed themselves and rightfully so, with a terrible song called "Your Husband - My Wife.

Thank you Raven.  I enjoyed watching the Archies do Sugar Sugar, that played through perfectly.  Unfortunately Good Morning Sunshine went start and stop.  However, I have access on bilibili to 23 versions of Good Morning Sunshine, and rather than my having to check out each one I would appreciate it if you would tell me the name of the performers.

I would appreciate it if you would tell me the name of the performers.  

So glad that the videos worked for you. When I pre-tested the two videos before posting them, both worked fine. Sorry that the Good Morning Starshine did not work well all the way through for you. But, I'm glad that you have an alternative means to play the song for you.

As for the singers in the songs....

The singer in the Good Morning Starshine song is sung by 'Oliver', the name he goes by professionally. His full name is William Oliver Swofford,

For the Sugar Sugar video....the lead singer of The Archies is Ron Dante.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for going to that trouble for me.   As I've said now a few times my vision is waning and I misread the title Good Morning Starshine to be Good Morning Sunshine.  I will play that one through tomorrow morning.  Either because my 13 year old computer slowly loses its grip during the day, or the internet congestion builds up so things work much better in the morning and I'm sure it will play smoothly in the morning.   I appreciate when members post a title and performer because then I often have alternative sources other than YouTube so I can find the song, but many members don't say anything, just post a YouTube, and all I get is a blank comment.

Very glad you like it, Buzz. I was never a hippy per se, as I was too busy working as a model and being a single Mom for two kids, but, I really enjoyed a lot of the music from those days.

I would have posted this as one of my choices if I had thought that it was well known.  The song was written to address the wife he was leaving.  I think it was his greatest song.  Gord lived 4 houses away from me for a year. 

I think you've made excellent song choices all around.

One of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time.  Tragically, gone way to soon.  

Laura sings 60's soul:

If you don't know Laura Nyro, this is the entire "Eli and the Thirteenth Confession" album from 1968.   It is beyond great.

A heartfelt tribute by Better Midler when Laura Nyro was posthumously inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Great add, she was a far greater singer/songwriter than is usually realized.  Her music just didn't match what was commercially successful at the time.  I find it timeless.  Cancer took her at a far too young an age.

Since she was so great, but not well-known today, I thought it might be a good introduction to younger members who don't know of her to post a full album as well as several songs. 

When I was in high school, in the 60s, all the girls wanted to be Laura Nyro.

Yes, it is.  It became very painful to play.  It's been about 13 - 14 years since I stopped, although I keep thinking I want to pick it up and try.  I started playing music when I was 8 years old, maybe younger because I used to pick out songs on my neighbors piano even before I was 8 as I recall.

I'm going to give some respect to Englebert Humperdinck. He may have been out of step with the swinging sixties, but this guy had some pipes. I think he is still performing in his mid 80's.

The greatest impromptu jam session in history. Taj Mahal and his band were playing at the Palomino Club in North Hollywood CA featuring Jesse Ed Davis a guitarist that everyone wanted to play with when in walked Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, and George Harrison and the rest is history.
