The title of this one says it all. The actual lyrics..? Who the hell knows what these drug addled hippies were trying to say. The flip side is more of the same, only with a flute...

Last night i watched this flick called "It's a bikini world" Really awful low budget beach movie from 1967, but i figured what the hell... 1960s chicks in bikinis with a cool soundtrack?! There are worse ways a fella could spend an hour and a half of his life... So i cracked a cold one and fired it up.
The kids in the movie went to this nightclub where live bands played. Bobby 'Boris' Pickett was one of the actors, and the music acts included were The Castaways, (I always asumed it was a woman who sang the 'Liar liar- pants on fire' bit. Nope, it's the regular lead singer.) The Toys, The Animals, and this one by The Gentrys. You can find all the music clips from it on YouTube.
Spread it on thick!

I already posted this one like a year and a half ago, but sometimes you just gotta hear a song again for the very first time.
That sometime would be now.
This one is the flip-side of the AM gold hit 'Take A Letter Maria.' Just one of many reasons you should always check out the b-sides of the big hits... You never know what's hiding under there.

I'm not sure what "Emo" music is exactly because i'm not an angst-ridden teenager, and i don't dig on modern sounds all that much, but if you want to talk about the definition of the word "emotional"- Christ, this one damn near brings a tear to my eye every time i spin it. The singer is practically bawling. This one was straight from the heart for sure. It's got to be one of the saddest god damn songs i own...
I'm sure he got over it though. Eventually i will too.
