In which we continue to revisit the summer of ’66.
This one is “big in Boston,” but the band was not from the area. The song was written by Ed Cobb, who produced the band, and also wrote the two-times hit “Tainted Love.” Dick Dodd, the drummer/vocalist for The Standells and former Mickey Mouse Club star, is the one lip-synching in the video.
I’ve never played guitar, but someone showed me how to play that opening riff once (I forget who. Damn it.) Anyway, here’s an absolute classic garage-rock tune. And, guess what? The Charles is not that dirty these days!
Love and kisses.
