McGuinn, Clark & Hillman - I Love Her [Demo] (1979)

When The Byrds finally disbanded permanently in 1973, each member went on to varying degrees of success. In 1977, Roger McGuinn (who had been touring with Bob Dylan the past few years), Gene Clark (who had been recording solo albums), and Chris Hillman (who had also been recording solo albums), found themselves on the same tour through Britain. The three reunited to form this supergroup and released one album together, McGuinn, Clark & Hillman, in 1979. They attempted another release together in 1980, but Clark’s lack of reliability resulted in the album, named City, being credited to McGuinn and Hillman while “featuring Clark.”

This song had initially not been included when the album was first released in 1979. It wasn’t until over twenty years later that this song (and two others) was made available for the public to hear. “Surrender to Me,” “Little Girl,” and this song were all demos added to the end of the album’s re-release in 2001. This song really brought back the sound of The Byrds.

Lyrics:

I love her, I love her
I’m always thinking of her
The way she makes me feel
Keeps her on my mind

Loving and gentle
It wasn’t accidental
Thank God I found her
Thank the Lord she’s mine
I love to see her face
In the morning when I rise

She’s still dreaming
When she opens up her eyes

Heaven knows I know
Our love is like a rainbow
Filled with every promise
Shining in the sun

I love her, I love her
I’m always thinking of her
The way she makes me feel
Keeps her on my mind

She’s still dreaming
When she opens up her eyes

Heaven knows I know
Our love is like a rainbow
Filled with every promise
Shining in the sun

Loving and gentle
It wasn’t accidental
Thank God I found her
Thank God I found her
Thank God I found her
Thank the Lord she’s mine

Fats Domino - Blueberry Hill (1956)

Born Antoine Domino, Jr. in New Orleans, Louisiana, this artist’s first language was Creole. He first gained nation-wide attention when his single, “The Fat Man,” sold over a million copies in 1949 (and is widely accepted as the first rock and roll record to do so). His success continued through the ‘50s, where rock and roll was king, and he slowly rolled into retirement by the 1980s. As he once stated, retirement to his home in Louisiana came easy, since he “couldn’t get any food” that he liked anywhere else in the country.

Originally released in 1940 by six different artists, including Glenn Miller, Gene Autry, and Jimmy Dorsey, this song had its lyrics written by Al Lewis and its music written by Vincent Rose. Its most successful rendition was released by this artist in 1956, spending eight weeks at number one on the R&B charts, and becoming his staple song.

Lyrics:

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill, when I found you

The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill
And lingered until my dream came true

The wind in the willow played love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made were never to be

Though we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

The wind in the willow played love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made were only to be

Though we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

The Blue Velvets - Oh My Love (1961)

Formed in 1959 and featuring a young John Fogerty, this band started out as a three-person instrumental group in the San Francisco Bay area. In 1960, John’s older brother, Tom Fogerty, joined the group and took the spot as the front man. In 1964 they changed their name to The Golliwogs and John’s efficiency as a writer, singer, and musician, eventually led him to taking the lead of the group by the end of 1967. By December of that year, they changed their name for the final time, to Creedence Clearwater Revival, where they found immense success.

This song was the only song of the group’s early years to receive much airtime. It was selected by Casey Kasem to be played on Oakland’s Top 40 playlist in the fall of 1961. It was written and sung by Tom Fogerty. John Fogerty played guitar; Stu Cook played piano; and Doug Clifford was on the drums. All of these members went on to play in CCR.

Badfinger - Day After Day (1971)

Coming together in the early ‘60s as The Iveys, this group was the most successful group to come out of The BeatlesApple Records, which they were signed to in 1968. They changed their name in 1969 and, as they became more popular, started to gather attention as The Beatles’ protégés. You can really hear McCartney’s songwriting in “Come and Get It,” which he gave to the group.

Written by member Pete Ham, this song is the group’s most well known hit. It was produced by George Harrison up until he departed to produce the Concert for Bangladesh, at which point production was handed over to Todd Rundgren. Harrison also contributed to the slide guitar portion of the song, along with Ham.

The Mothers of Invention - Go Cry On Somebody Else's Shoulder (1966)

Originally known as The Soul Giants when formed in 1964, this group changed their name when their new frontman, Frank Zappa, joined the group that same year. Their new name, often referred to as only “The Mothers,” was said to be an abbreviation of the term “mother****ers,” which was an adjective at the time to describe great musicians. Other members of the group have included Flo & Eddie (previously of The Turtles); Elliot Ingber (later of Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band); and Ian Underwood (who recorded with Barbra Streisand as well as performed on the theme to Knight Rider).

This song comes from the group’s debut double album, Freak Out!. The album was noted for being one of rock’s first concept albums, satirizing American rock music and pop culture, as well as influencing the production of The Beatles’ masterpiece, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Lyrics:

A year ago today
Was when you went away
But now you come back knocking on my door
And you’ll say you're back to stay
But I say:

Go cry on somebody else's shoulder
I'm somewhat wiser now
And one whole year older
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you anymore

You cheated me baby
And told some dirty lies about me
Fooled around with all those other guys
That's why I had to set you free
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you anymore

A year ago today
You went away
And now you come back cryin'- cryin'
“Darling please let me in”
But I don't need you
No, I don't love you anymore
So go lean on- go cry on
Somebody else's door

Go cry on somebody else's shoulder
I'm somewhat wiser now
And one whole year older
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you anymore

(Oh, my darling)
Go ahead and cry
Go ahead and let the tears fall out of your eye
(Darling)
Let 'em fall on your dress
Who cares if it makes a mess?
I gave you my high school ring
At the root beer stand
We had a teenage love, baby
I thought it was sharp
It was really so grand, but

You cheated me baby
And told some dirty lies about me
Fooled around with all those other guys
That's why I had to get my khakis pressed
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you anymore

(Baby)
Baby
(I- I- I- I)
I love you so much, darling
(I, oh, I love you)
Why don't you dig me?
(Baby)
I- I dig you
But you don't dig me
(Oh, I need you)
I don't understand what it is
(Baby)
I- I had my car re-upholstered
I got my hair processed
(Oh, I love you)
I got a nice pompadour job on it
(Oh, my baby)
I bought a new pair of shoes
(Oh, my love)
I got some new khakis and I met you
And we went out to get a Coca-Cola…

Tommy James and the Shondells - Crimson and Clover (1968)

In 1959, Tommy Jackson (soon Tommy James) was already singing in bands around his hometown. In one of his groups, he recorded a cover of the song “Hanky Panky” just before the group dissolved from the music scene. When the song became a huge hit a few years later, Tommy James found new Shondells to back him and continued the band. They had two number one singles and twelve top forty hits.

After releasing their hit “Mony Mony,” James wanted to take the group in a new direction. This song was the first example of that new direction. When James played it for WLS radio station in Chicago, off-air, the station secretly recorded the song and later played it on-air as their “world exclusive.” Despite never being fully completed, the song went to number one.

The Beau Brummels - Laugh, Laugh (1964)

Helping to create the emerging San Francisco music scene that was arising in response to the British Invasion, this American group was originally produced by Sly Stone. Formed in 1964, the group had multiple members swapped due to illnesses and being drafted for the war in Vietnam. In the mid-60s, their drummer John Petersen left to help form Harpers Bizarre.

When The Beatles cartoon was released in 1965 and became an instant success, other animation studios decided that they wanted to cash in on the ‘60s music craze. Hanna-Barbera chose this group to feature on their legendary cartoon, The Flintstones, where an animated version of the group, renamed The Beau Brummelstones, performed this song at Bedrock’s Shinrock teen dance show (a parody of the ‘60s show, Shindig!). (Watch the clip here.)

I hate to say it
But I told you so
Don't mind my preaching to you
I said don't trust him
Baby, now you know
You don't learn everything
There is to know in school

Wouldn't believe me
When I gave advice
I said that he was a tease
If you want help
You better ask me nice
So be sincere, convince me
With a “pretty please”

Laugh, laugh, I thought I'd die
It seemed so funny to me
Laugh, laugh, you met a guy
Who taught you how it feels to be

Lonely, oh, so lonely

Don't think I'm bein’ funny
When I say
You got just what you deserve
I can't help feeling
You found out today
You thought you were too good
You had a lot of nerve

Won't say I'm sorry
For the things I've said
I'm glad he packed up to go
You kept on bragging
He was yours instead
Found you don't know everything
There is to know

Laugh, laugh, I thought I'd die
It seemed so funny to me
Laugh, laugh, you met a guy
Who taught you how it feels to be

Lonely, oh, so lonely

Before I go
I got to say one thing
Don't close your ears to me
Take my advice and
You'll find out that being
Just another girl
Won't cause you misery

Don't say you can't
Get any boy to call
Don't be so smug or else
You'll find you can't
Get any boy at all
You'll wind up an old lady
Sitting on the shelf

Laugh, laugh, I thought I'd die
It seemed so funny to me
Laugh, laugh, you met a guy
Who taught you how it feels to be

Lonely, oh, so lonely…

Phil Ochs - I Ain't Marching Anymore (1965)

Born in 1940, this protest singer (or topical singer, as he preferred) wrote tons of songs against the USA’s involvement in Vietnam throughout the 1960s. He performed at anti-Vietnam protests, civil rights rallies, student protests, and labor events throughout the ‘60s. Sadly, the 1970s saw his mental health deteriorate and succumb to bipolar disorder and alcoholism before taking his own life in 1976.

This song, sometimes thought of as his signature song, was written as the USA’s involvement in Vietnam began to grow. He stated, “the fact that you won't be hearing this song on the radio is more than enough justification for the writing of it.” In 1968, he performed the song outside of the Democratic National Convention, which led to hundreds of males to burn their draft cards in protest. He called it the highlight of his career.

Lyrics:

Oh I marched to the battle of New Orleans
At the end of the early British wars
The young land started growin’
The young blood started flowin’
But I ain't a-marchin' anymore

For I've killed my share of Injuns
In a thousand different fights
I was there at the Little Big Horn
I heard many men lyin’
I saw many more a-dyin’
But I ain't a-marchin' anymore

It's always the old to lead us to the wars
Always the young to fall
Now look at all we've won with a saber and a gun
Tell me is it worth it all

For I stole California from the Mexican land
Fought in the bloody Civil War
Yes, I even killed my brothers
And so many others
But I ain't marchin' anymore

For I marched to the battles of the German trench
In a war that was bound “to end all wars”
Oh I must ’a killed a million men
And now they want me back again
But I ain't marchin' anymore

It's always the old to lead us to the wars
Always the young to fall
Now look at all we've won with a saber and a gun
Tell me is it worth it all

For I flew the final mission in the Japanese skies
Set off the mighty mushroom roar
When I saw the cities burnin’
I knew that I was learnin’
That I ain't marchin' anymore

Now the labor leader’s screamin'
When they close the missile plants
United Fruit screams at the Cuban shore
Call it "peace" or call it "treason"
Call it "love" or call it "reason"
But I ain't marchin' anymore

No, I ain't marchin' anymore

Les Fleur de Lys - Circles (1966)

Formed in 1964, this psychedelic group has a lot of history for little success. Their keyboardist, Pete Sears, would later play with Rod Stewart, as well as go on to be a founding member of Jefferson Starship (a spinoff of Jefferson Airplane). At one point, the group was also recruited to record the song “Reflections of Charles Brown” (listen here) under the name Rupert’s People (a ripoff of Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade of Pale”).

This song was written by Pete Townshend and first released by his group, The Who, in 1965 under the title “Instant Party (Circles)” on their debut album, My Generation. This group’s version, which I actually think I may enjoy more, has a bit more psychedelic feeling to it and was co-produced by Jimmy Page and Glyn Johns. It was released a year after the original.

Circles- my head is goin’ ‘round in circles
My mind is caught up in a whirlpool
Draggin’ me down

Time will tell if I'll take the homeward track
The dizziness will make my feet walk back
Walk on back to you

Everything I do, I think of you
No matter how I try, I can't get by
Circles leading me back to you

‘round and ‘round and ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
and ‘round and ‘round and ‘round and ‘round…

Just one thing could kill the pain of losing you
It gets me so dizzy that I walk right back again
Back to you

Time will tell if I'll take the homeward track
The dizziness will make my feet walk back
Walk on back to you

Down and down and down like a pool I go
Round and round like a fool, I go
Dragging me down

The Marshall Tucker Band - Can't You See (1973)

Performing for nearly forty years, this group was responsible for helping to push “southern rock” into a mainstream genre in the ‘70s. There have been over twenty-five members in all, but the most notable were brothers Toy and Tommy Caldwell. The group named themselves after an inscription they found engraved into a key to a warehouse they had rented to rehearse in. They didn’t realize that the name was of a man still living: a blind piano tuner who had rented the warehouse just before the band.

This song was first released on the group’s self-titled first album in 1973. It has been covered by Hank Williams, Jr., Waylon Jennings, and others.

Paul McCartney & Wings - Band on the Run (1973)

Formed by Paul and Linda McCartney in the aftermath of The Beatles break-up, this band remained together for ten years until finally dissolving in 1981. The group primarily consisted of Paul McCartney, previously of The Beatles; Linda McCartney, Paul’s wife; and Denny Laine, previously of The Moody Blues. Although many other people came and went as members of the band, it was the three above that wrote all of the band’s songs, and Paul who sang the majority of them.

This song is one of my all-time favorites. It comes from the group’s third album, Band on the Run, which was released in 1973. It was the second of five singles to be released by the group which reached number one in the US. The line “If we ever get out of here” was unknowingly contributed by George Harrison, years prior, when speaking about one of The Beatles meetings they were stuck in.

Stuck inside these four walls
Sent inside forever

All I need is a pint a day
If I ever get outta here

Well the rain exploded with a mighty crash as we fell into the sun
And the first one said to the second one there, “I hope you're having fun”
Band on the run

And a bell was ringing in the village square for the rabbits on the run

And the jailor man and sailor Sam were searchin’ everyone

Yea, the band on the run

Well the night was falling as the desert world began to settle down
In the town, they're searching for us everywhere, but we never will be found
Band on the run
Band on the run
And the county judge who held a grudge
Will search for evermore
For the band on the run

Joni Mitchell - Michael from Mountains (1968)

Born Roberta Joan Anderson in Canada and known as one of the greatest songwriters in history, this female artist first found success when she moved to the US in 1965. The popularity of having other folk artists of the time recording her music led to her debut album in 1968. She has released a total of nineteen studio albums, ranging in style from folk to jazz, classical, and pop.

Coming from her debut album, Song to a Seagull, this song was inspired by Mitchell’s love of classical and folk music. This song, as well as the entire first side of the album, is about Mitchell’s failed marriage to Chuck Mitchell, from where her stage name came.

Lyrics:

Michael wakes you up with sweets
He takes you up streets and the rain comes down
Sidewalk markets locked up tight
And umbrellas bright on a grey background
There's oil in the puddles in taffeta patterns
That run down the drain
In colored arrangements
That Michael will change with a stick that he found

Michael from mountains
Go where you will go to
Know that I will know you
Someday I may know you very well

Michael brings you to a park
He sings and it’s dark when the clouds come by
Yellow slickers up on swings
Like puppets on strings hanging in the sky
They'll splash home to suppers in wallpapered kitchens
Their mothers will scold
But Michael will hold you
To keep away cold ‘til the sidewalks are dry

Michael from mountains
Go where you will go to
Know that I will know you
Someday I may know you very well

Michael leads you up the stairs
He needs you to care and you know you do
Cats come crying to the key
And dry you will be in a towel or two
There's rain in the window
There's sun in the painting that smiles on the wall
You want to know all
But his mountains have called so you never do

Michael from mountains
Go where you will go to
Know that I will know you
Someday I may know you very well

Someday I will know you very well

King Crimson - The Court of the Crimson King (1969)

Eighteen people have been able to claim to be members of this band, but Robert Fripp is the only one to be there from start to finish. They were formed in 1968 from the ashes of Giles, Giles and Fripp and featured Greg Lake of future ELP fame in their earliest years. They never garnered much radio airtime, but they did achieve a cult following.

This song comes from the group’s first album, In the Court of the Crimson King. Pete Townshend of The Who referred to the album as “an uncanny masterpiece” and it is often seen as one of the founding albums of progressive rock. This song, the last track on the album, was the only song released by the group to reach the charts in the US.

Lyrics:

The rusted chains of prison moons
Are shattered by the sun
I walk a road- horizons change
The tournament's begun
The purple piper plays his tune
The choir softly sing
Three lullabies in an ancient tongue
For the court of the Crimson King

The keeper of the city keys
Put shutters on the dreams
I wait outside the pilgrim's door
With insufficient schemes
The Black Queen chants
The funeral march
The cracked brass bells will ring
To summon back the fire witch
To the court of the Crimson King

The gardener plants an evergreen
Whilst trampling on a flower
I chase the wind of a prism ship
To taste the sweet and sour
The pattern juggler lifts his hand
The orchestra begin
As slowly turns the grinding wheel
In the court of the Crimson King

On soft gray mornings, widows cry
The wise men share a joke
I run to grasp divining signs
To satisfy the hoax
The yellow jester does not play
But gently pulls the strings
And smiles as the puppets dance
In the court of the Crimson King

Percy Faith - Theme from a Summer Place (1960)

This man went from playing violin and piano to conducting after his hands were badly burnt in a fire. He has the honor of being credited with the creation of “easy listening” and “mood music,” which he achieved by increasing the size of his band’s string section and balancing out the heavy brass section which was heavily favored by others at the time.

This song, which originally had lyrics, was written for the film A Summer Place. This particular version heard below used no lyrics and went to number one in the US for nine weeks, a record still held today for an instrumental song. It reached number two in the UK and number one in Italy.

The Tremeloes - Here Comes My Baby (1967)

Originally known as Brian Poole and the Tremoloes, this group can attribute their final and current band name to a misspelling in the newspaper. On January 1st, 1962, Decca auditioned two groups: this one and The Beatles. Having similar beat styles, Decca chose this group over The Beatles. Although they didn't reach the same success as The Fab Four, they did manage to release hit songs until 1971 (and continue to perform to this day).

This song was originally written and performed by Cat Stevens in 1967. This group’s version of the song reached number four in the UK and number thirteen in the US. It was their first hit in a 1967 trio of hits to chart highly and eventually achieve a Gold Certification by the RIAA.

In the midnight, moonlight hour
He’s walking along that lovely mile
And every time I do
I keep seeing this picture of you

Here comes my baby
Here she comes now
And it comes as no surprise for me:
With another guy

Well here comes my baby
Here she comes now
Walking with her love
With her love that's oh-so fine
Never to be mine
No matter how I try

You never walk alone
And you’re forever talking on the phone
I tried to call your name
But every time it comes out the same

Here comes my baby
Here she comes now

Well here comes my baby
Here she comes now
Walking with her love
With her love that's oh-so fine
Never to be mine
No matter how I try

And it comes as no surprise for me:

Well here comes my baby
Here she comes now

With her love that's oh-so fine
