    I loved the Cilla Black tune....well, I love Burt Bacharach and Hal David tunes. They are unbeatable for great lyrics and unforgettable, completely singable, musical hooks.

    You know this was as a Dionne Warwick number 1 hit in the USA in '64 with Ms Black's version topping the charts at #1 in the UK top hit list while Warwick's did not do so well over there.

    HI @momofthegoons - Harry Nilsson is a favorite of mine. Maybe not that song, but his score for the The Point and his "Everybody's Talking At Me" from Midnight Cowboy were pure genius IMO.

    Sad that he's gone.

    Progressive rock is a wide and varied fusion of styles. Everything from Pink Floyd to King Crimson.
    "Pet Sounds
    and Sgt. Pepper's, with their lyrical unity, extended structure, complexity, eclecticism, experimentalism, and influences derived from classical music forms, are largely viewed as beginnings in the progressive rock genre."

    I wasn't thinking about explaining the term progressive rock. Thanks! My father used to listen to Genesis a lot (only Peter Gabriel era). Yes was played most often in our household:

    Almost Cut My Hair
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    (Redirected from Almost Cut My Hair (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young song))
    "Almost Cut My Hair" is a song by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, originally released on the band's 1970 album Déjà Vu.[1]

    The song describes a real-life dilemma faced by many hippies: whether to cut one's hair to a more practical length, or leave it long as a symbol of rebellion.[2] It was written by David Crosby, and features solo vocals by Crosby, with the rest of the band joining in on instruments rather than (as in many of their other songs) on vocal harmony. Unlike most of the tracks on Déja Vu, the quartet and their studio musicians, Dallas Taylor (drums) and Greg Reeves (bass), all recorded it at the same place and time.[1] It was one of only two songs from the album that Neil Young joined in on despite not writing.[3]

    Although the notion of long hair as a "freak flag" appeared earlier, notably in a 1967 Jimi Hendrix song "If 6 Was 9", Crosby's song has been credited with popularizing the idea of long hair as a deliberate and visible symbol of the wearer's affiliation with the counterculture, and opposition to establishment values. James Perone writes that, "more than any other song of the entire era", it "captures the extent to which the divisiveness in American society ... had boiled over into violence and terror".[1]

    It became one of Crosby's "signature songs",[4] and "probably his most important political song".[5] Crosby himself stated "It was the most juvenile set of lyrics I've ever written ... but it has a certain emotional impact, there's no question about that."[4]

    I recommend using Wikipedia to see the personnel on each song. It is interesting for those who are not knowledgeable about it.
    Let's go surfin with some R&B and soul. :)
    The Wrecking Crew played most of the instruments.
    Glen Campbell, Leon Russell, Carol Kaye etc, included.

    A personal fave
    "The song was recorded shortly after Brian completed Beach Boys' Party! in between sessions for the Pet Sounds tracks "Sloop John B" and "You Still Believe in Me". It was initially labelled "Carol K" on its session tape box, a reference to the song's bassist, Carol Kaye."
