50s-70s Rock

A fun song by McCartney written as a crash course in songwriting.

I picked up this one from the Good Morning Vietnam soundtrack, a classic by Wayne Fontana and The Mindbenders.

We played a few covers for a local music school: CCR’s Down on the Corner, ELO’s Rock ‘n’ Roll is King, and The Mamas and The Papas’ California Dreamin’.

By The Turtles, and only in the 60s could they include a French Horn like that! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRCe5…)

Who hasn’t covered this great song over the years? Even if you can’t dance, it makes you want to! (A couple of our harmonies get a bit hinky…not the perfect venue for hearing each other live on simple equipment.)

Covered by the Beach Boys, but this one’s by the Mamas and the Papas.

A John Fogerty/CCR classic. We don’t have a gut bass, washboard, or kalamazoo, but my sister did find a pretty cool cowbell sound on her drums.

Written by Hoyt Axton, this song was made famous by Three Dog Night—if it’s a cold night in Australia, you gotta’ snuggle with your dingo, and three for the freezers!
