    That is indeed Classic BG ("Sugar, Sugar" being the archetype), but I submit the lyrics of SHT:

    Imagine me and you, I do
    I think about you day and night, it's only right
    To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
    So happy together

    If I should call you up, invest a dime
    And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
    Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
    So happy together

    I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
    For all my life
    When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
    For all my life

    Me and you and you and me
    No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
    The only one for me is you, and you for me
    So happy together

    I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
    For all my life
    When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
    For all my life

    Me and you and you and me
    No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
    The only one for me is you, and you for me
    So happy together

    Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba
    Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba

    Me and you and you and me
    No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
    The only one for me is you, and you for me
    So happy together

    So happy together
    How is the weather
    So happy together
    We're happy together
    So happy together
    Happy together
    So happy together
    So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba)
    The Prosecution rests.
    I've read that The Turtles recorded a lot of their "bubble gum" music as a facetious response to "real" bubble gum music.

    Besides that....what's wrong with bubble gum music? The Flourescent Leech would not be happy.

        Same song: http://www.amazon.com/gp/music/wma-pop- ... 04-4767857

          Count the no's? No, thank you. I'll just stick with Nobody Does It Better. Wrong year, but great song.

            Hmm, double standard alert.

              Hit the road JACK!! And don't come back no more,no more.....

              http://publications.mediapost.com/index ... _aid=63620

              Looks like WCBS FM is being unJACKED, Wayne b from jersey alerts us to the story.
              Holly Levis left CBS as Jack PD last week to join WALK 97.5 in an on-air slot.
              Who returns? I'd like to see Joe McCoy back as PD.Norm N. Nite on the air again in NYC would be wonderful also.

                and
                -Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts from the British Empire and Beyond, 1964-1969

                Both are 4-CD sets. Not every cut is a total winner, but there's great stuff here that you've either never heard and/or have completely forgotten.
                Out of the 4-CD Psychedelia set, I found these worthy of putting on my iPod:

                I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night 3:00 The Electric Prunes
                Dirty Water 2:48 Standells
                Night Time 2:32 The Strangeloves
                Lies 2:44 Knickerbockers
                Psychotic Reaction 3:07 The Count Five
                Baby Please Don't Go 5:39 Amboy Dukes
                Tobacco Road 4:42 The Blues Magoos
                No Time Like The Right Time 2:47 The Blues Project
                Oh Yeah 2:49 Shadows Of Knight
                Hey Joe 2:51 The Leaves
                Talk Talk 1:59 The Music Machine
                Nobody But Me 2:19 Human Beinz
                Incense and Peppermints 2:50 Strawberry Alarm Clock
                Time Won't Let Me 2:50 The Outsiders
                Laugh, Laugh 2:54 The Beau Brummels
                Shape of Things to Come 1:54 Max Frost & The Troopers
                Who Do You Love 2:04 The Woolies
                Little Girl 2:29 Syndicate Of Sound
                (We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet 2:18 The Blues Magoos
                Shape Of Things To Come 1:54 Max Frost & The Troopers
                Fight Fire 2:34 The Golliwogs
                She's About A Mover 2:25 Sir Douglas Quintet
                I Need You 2:16 The Rationals
                Psycho 2:17 The Sonics
                Story Of My Life 2:44 Unrelated Segments
                Journey To The Center Of The Mind 3:34 The Amboy Dukes
                Blues' Theme 2:10 Davie Allan &The Arrows
                The Witch 2:40 Sonics
                I like alot of those, too, but also really like some of the other (and possibly weirder) things like:
                -You Must be a Witch--Lollipop Shoppe (!)
                -I'm Five Years Ahead of My Time--The Third Bardo
                -Optical Sound--Human Expression
                etc.

                7 and 7 Is--Love is simply amazing, and Going All the Way--The Squires, is the greatest pop song that (basically) no one's ever heard. The latter was a one-hit wonder group from CT, where I grew up. I now remember liking it back then, but hadn't heard it even once between ca. 1968 and the date I got this CD set a few years ago.

                By the way, Davie Allen's recent albums are great fun.

                These sets play up the proto-punk and garage sound of the day, which I'm particularly interested in...

                  Just found that on-line (some radio station's playlist) and just listened to it. I almost sorta/kinda remember it, but not really. Very cool song, though. Thanks! Louie, Louie was the #1 garageband song.
