How old are you, OP?

52, R2. I think the song came out in 1965. I was young but I remember it well.

It's a great tune OP. I'd never heard it, but I just downloaded it.

R2, who cares how old the OP is? I'm only 24, but great music is timeless. Some of the best tunes in my library are from the 50s, 60s and 70s- way before I was born.

One of the best things about this website is all the great music the posters have introduced me to- Nina Simone, Dinah Washington, Jeff Buckley, The Guess Who, Joni Mitchell, The Stone Roses, Eva Cassidy, Al Green, The Clash- the list goes on and on, and most of it was recorded before I was a teenager.

So, thank you OP, and thanks to all of the posters who have turned me on to timeless, classic pop music. You have my eternal gratitude! As a token of my gratitude, here's a link to one of the cool disco tunes I heard about through Datalounge-

Thank you, R4. You're a wise and open-minded. I liked your link too. I remember dancing to that song in the days of disco.

I like it, but Five O'Clock World is my favorite of theirs. God, I love that song.

Especially the beginning of You're the One made it one of the most addictive songs of my youth. I could listen to it over and over again.

Why was everyone so uptight in those days? Even the pop musicians wore suits and performed like robots.

The performance is not robotic. It is very much the style and rhythm of the day. This was a big hit. As for their style of dress...that's what people wore. You didn't appear on stage in jeans and a T-shirt.

Every see the early days of Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Temptations, The Four Tops? The wore jackets and ties. Even The Beatles wore suits when the first appeared on TV. They weren't uptight, but rather just well-dreseed--maybe over-dressed compared to the changes that took hold in 1967-'68. But this was 1965. It was different then.

They are so clean-cut and tidy. Yuk.

Petula Clark (of "Downtown" fame) actually wrote this song, believe it or not. Here is a video of her singing it.
