Hi all.  Wink

I like a lot many beatles songs from the early vietnam era (1963-1967).
But also some doors, hollies and others.
Here's a short list of my favourites...

The Beatles
ticket to ride
she loves you
the night before
if i fell


The doors
Take as it comes
alabama song
people are strange
you're lost little girl
light my fire


The hollies
Bus stop

Gary Lewis & the playboys
This diamond ring

Too many song for a complete list...  Wink

Welcome to the station Paul.  You have come to the right place.  At one time or another most of those songs get played.  And the station Manager is good at taking requests and is updating the play lists all the time.  He reads these posts and is constantly mixing things around to appeal to the listeners. 

I hope you stick around and enjoy the music Smiley

Petula Clark - Downtown
Pleasant, Carnaby Street, mod-pop song.  I remember it well from my early college days, before I dropped out and went into the Army.

Seekers - I'll never find another you
Good, folk-rock tune.  This one brings back a lot of memories, too.  Don't think I've heard it on the station yet [Nix:  Are you listening?]

I think I read somewhere that Nix doesn't like the song "Downtown".  He probably got burned out on it after an all night marathon of watching Flight of the Intruder over and over again  LOL

There are also two songs which make me hard to fight back the tears.
They're not from vietnam era but they're referred to that period.

Sant Ridgeway - Camouflage
Kim Wilde - Cambodia

I don't like them very much for the music but i'm really moved while listening to them. Especially Ridgeway's.

Hey, Nix!  We're in agreement on Aquarius!  Sort of an overproduced, fake Broadway rendition of the hippie phenomenon.  Didn't even like it when it first came out - much less retro'd!  Roll Eyes

To each their own... it made it's way here the same way.  I've also discovered some music that I love through requests or at least took the time to fully listen to.  There's also those that I heard outside of here on remakes, etc. that I liked and discovered the original.  One of those is the Status Quo and Matchstick Men (Ozzy Osbourne & Type-O Negative Remake) which made it into the current rotation... I was reminded of it in a recent ad I believe.

Hey, there's another few good subjects I'll have to get out here... What songs from the era are you hearing in commercials... The Song, Artist and the commercial... Like Donovan's To Catch The Wind, which made it here after seeing that ad and loving the song. Smiley  Heard it on the Greatest Hits I have but I think the commercial actually made me pay closer attention to it. Smiley  The other subject I'll get is if someone has found a song they like from hearing a remake.  Lots of Tommy Shondell songs (to my surprise) have been covered, mostly in the 80s and fairly big hits that I never knew he originally had done.

Yes, and the song is wrong too.  It wasn't the age of aquarius.  I Googled it to understand the song and found that according to astrology the age of aquarius doesn't come for quite some time  LOL

The music of CCR has always been in tune with the era of Vietnam for me.  Really, to many to name.  Good stuff.  I am new to the forum and love the music of the time.
