DaveL I thought this was Steppenwolf's 1st hit. I'm drawing a purple haze on that for the moment.
DaveL The sound placed it at the top. You know it wasn't the lyrics which were so severely lacking it became a mere spelling bee.

DaveL The Beatles evolved from a mere singing group to a group with a lyrical commentary representing the majority of the boomers at the time.
DaveL With an evolution of revolution, 'the' finger was used for expression. It was popular, direct, & in retrospect, lame. Why I mention it, now??

DaveL Dusting of the do-wop w/ a do-wop double play w/ The Teddy Bears. Intro to Phil Specter.
DaveL Speaking of Phil Spector. He wasn't in 2 performing but, rather producing. This song was representative of the now famous Spector 'wall of sound.'
DaveL I play this, again as another representative of that 'wall of sound' that trademarks many of the hits from the era.
DaveL Have to play it, again. There was something wrong w/ playback on the previously posted selection. This was just a real favorite.
DaveL Interestingly simplistic but, significant as a hit from L.A.'s KRLA top 50 tune-dex. I don't understand why or, how but, it made it 2 the big time.
DaveL The Rolling Stones! 3rd behind the Beatles, & DC 5 in the infamous 'invasion' with their debut on the American charts.
DaveL 1965's candy. Thnx 2 all for props. Getting set 4 take off from the earports of the world, & my trip back to reality, including fun on the job!
DaveL From when, I don't know. I just knew The Love Shack had to be!
DaveL For the earports of the world this is Led Zeppelin at the top of the charts in 1969.
DaveL A Beatles double deal.

DaveL The 'invasion' would have never been complete w/o the Stones.
DaveL Time for a rock 'n roll wake-up call!
DaveL First there is a mountain. Then there isn't. Kind of like hello-good-bye. The mind can be so fragile.
DaveL As the day breaks, one last look at the starshine.

DaveL Are you ready to start the day? Of course, you are. How about something w/ a good beat, & (this is the important part) easy to dance to?

DaveL Imagine this is from 1958, and it would be a great 'theme' song for todays, TWITTER, and all the tweets!
DaveL My kind of humor! One of the founding fathers of rock 'n roll!@sir_edward_ross: "couldn't find the Big Blipper but found Big Bopper @Travvybear " (reblip)
DaveL As the Dodgers-Phillies get started, I'm reminded of missing Harry Caray at Wrigley. I've never been 2 Chicago. Cubs to win world series, 2010.

DaveL You heard me right! CUBS to win World Series 2010 no matter whether the score is 25 or 6 to 4.
DaveL Hold Me Tight, and I Can See Clearly Now are 2 others giving notoriety to Johnny Nash. With a reggae sound attached, Stir It Up is another.
DaveL @sir_edward_ross. It is possible to escape. Many escaped in to, and out of TVs original prime-time Twilight Zone from the 60's.

DaveL Let's look at what black & white tv did for the purple people eater in 1958. It was all there was!
DaveL Didn't mean to scare anybody with a flying purple people eater.
DaveL Paul Simon went on to record several hits following a very successful venture with Art Garfunkel.
DaveL Excellent! Thnx for excellent add!@Gypsylyn: "♥ Dance With Me ♥ Orleans" (reblip)
DaveL Wow!@pcsketch: Somehow reminded me of Steppenwolf from the beginning. (reblip)
DaveL From a Steppenwolf Lp. Far from a Magic Carpet Ride. @pcsketch @DJTIMMY @comicmama @Dancer12 @sir_edward_ross
DaveL Don't mis-understand. Never anything wrong w/ mainstream Steppenwolf.
DaveL I have had some ? re: playing this but, it represents the 60's. There was an anti-drug community playing 2nd place 2 the highly publicized drug crowd
DaveL Thnx for another 'fab 40' hit!@Gypsylyn: "~ Brown Eyed Girl ~ Van Morrison ..;-)" (reblip)
DaveL B4 there were pushers, b4 the Beatles, way back b4 times were so confused, there was fun, rock 'n roll.@DJRosaNava: "Bobby Vee - Devil Or Angel " (reblip)
DaveL You can't plz all. Seems like we lost one via The Pusher but, only one. Then gained another. Appreciate all & understand.
