All this talk's put me into reminiscence mode. I remembered an LP (see - who the hell knows what one of those things is now?) which was quite formative in my musical tastes - You Can All Join In, which was a sampler album and, of course, I didn't have it any more. I've just found every single track in the original 1969 format on Youtube. So I have it again now and will become a real pain the bum tomorrow as I wander around with my headphones on. It's just a shame I can only make a CD out of the tracks rather than a huge hissy LP.

YouTube's obviously getting a thumping :lol:

Yes - I remembered Nice Enough To Eat in the early hours - just after I'd conjured The Rock Machine Turns You On out of the back of my head.

Eeeeee - them were days!

Quite happy? You missed Dylan (I'll Be Your Baby Tonight), Tim Rose (Come Away, Melinda), and who could possibly forget I Won't Leave My Wooden Wife For You, Sugar by United States of America?

Why would you need a new forum for the old and decrepit? What's wrong with this one? :lol:

Jesus H. I'd forgotten about them,''It's not that I'm ashamed about you and me,but I've got to consider my morality'' We're a bit off topic,but..

Here's some thing that happened the other day: (I'll be brief) OH is a Zumba instructor.Her oldest class is at a local village hall.There's a Quaker couple there that haven't missed a week for 3 years,both in their 70's but fit as butcher's dogs.She changes the warm up music every week,and as that bit's freestyle,people often make requests.Couple of weeks back said couple requested 'Sympathy for the Devil 'as the warm up music ,explaining it was their wedding anniversary and it was special to them.Quiet chat afterwards explained a lot..

Married at Marylebone registry office 5 July 1969..so where did they go straight after?..yep,Stones in The Park,just over the road..!

Now how cool is that?!

Aah you mentioned one that I remember, Come away Melinda (come in and close the door). There were several Apocalyptic songs about around that time, Eve of destruction, Barry McGuire and It's good news week, Hedgehoppers Anonymous I remember, so I must have been alert for at least a few days of that decade.

The problem with the 70's was that BBC Radio 1 was a load of crap, but the 60's started off with Radio Luxembourg and built up to a crescendo with the pirates Radio Caroline, Radio London (Big L) and others that got killed off when the 70's started.
Although there WAS Jimmy Young on Radio 2. :lol:

...... Mind you, the 50's were worse. TWO radio stations, BBC Home Service and BBC Light Program and I think 2 programs that were allowed to play records, Housewives Choice and Family Favourites, and they were full of Doris Day, Alma Cogan and Michael Holliday.
I wasn't allowed to listen to Luxembourg, we had one radio and I was deemed too young to listen to Bill Haley :(
