Late 60s song by Louis Armstrong that flopped in the charts at the time.... 35 years later it was used in a commercial and made it to 3rd in the UK charts...

Not exactly. "What a Wonderful World" actually got no higher than number 12 on the still-young "adult contemporary" chart in 1967, and no higher than number 7 on the same chart when Good Morning, Vietnam prompted the single's re-release in 1988. The Armstrong record that overshadowed anything else he did in the 1960s was, unfortunately . . .


Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

. . . and I say "unfortunately" because despite going to number one on the charts in 1964 (and, ridiculously, winning the Grammy award for the year's best single) it wasn't even close to the quality of what Armstrong did for so many years prior to the 1960s, especially this album of 1954 from which I offer a great taste . . .

Well thanks everyone for the tunes this year... and replies to the tunes... I don't often reply because I don't see myself as knowledgeable enough to... but I listen to them.

Anyhoo... ran across a little odd thing that some Beatles fans might enjoy... just a weird oddity.... seems the Beatles fan club would put out little disks (often floppy disks) during the holidays... Here is a collection of them over the years (60s) .... like I said, only something probable die hard fans would appreciate... I left the art (pics) with it...

Album says 20 One Hit Wonders and mostly seems to be 60s songs and a lot of them are cover songs. But I knew most the songs (Beetles ect) so it wasn't obscure stuff. Maybe someone will get a kick or two of this. Album source so expect some imperfections.

Every time someone mentions Nuggets this one becomes my ear worm . . .

Sagittarius, "My World Fell Down"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

. . . and if it sounds like a kind-of discard from the Beach Boys's Pet Sounds/Smile era, it's the next best thing: Sagittarius was actually three musicians with Beach Boys connections: Gary Usher (who'd co-written songs with Brian Wilson earlier in the Beach Boys' career), Bruce Johnston (who joined the band first as Brian Wilson's stand-in on bass for Beach Boys tours, when Wilson began making composing and recording his full-time work), and Glen Campbell (before his own fame, he was one of the Wrecking Crew studio musicians who played on a lot of Beach Boys studio recordings and toured with them as their bassist briefly before Johnston got the job full-time), who actually sang the lead on "My World Fell Down," though obviously not in his soon-to-be-familiar baritone.

And, the "G. Stephens" listed as the song's co-writer is probably one Geoff Stephens, who created one of the 1960s biggest by-the-way hits: 1966's "Winchester Cathedral," which inadvertently provided a road map to Monty Python---Stephens wrote "Winchester Cathedral" in the style of the vintage British music hall revues he loved growing up, made the record with studio musicians he dubbed the New Vaudeville Band, and suddenly needed a road band when the thing became an international smash including going number one in the U.S.

Stephens found one, or so he thought, a group of musical satirists using Brit music hall, jazz, and rock and roll as their foundation and calling themselves the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. The Bonzos as a whole weren't interested, but one of their original horn men, Bob Kerr, was, and signed onto Stephens's touring band. The New Vaudeville Band petered out once the "Winchester Cathedral" novelty wore off (they managed two more chart singles in England, though), but the Bonzos endured . . . including a guitarist/keyboardsman who wrote about half their material (trumpeter/vocalist Viv Stanshall wrote the other half), helping their music influence the comedy troupe he eventually joined: the late Neil Innes.

@Sighlass

From 1966, when the touring New Vaudeville Band appeared on The Hollywood Palace television variety show to mime two songs---on the night Kate Smith was the show's guest host. (You may notice, too, that the pocket trumpeter who lip-synchs "Winchester Cathedral" has a resemblance to American comedian Larry Storch . . .)

The New Vaudeville Band, "Peek-A-Boo"/"Winchester Cathedral"

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

The cartoon balloons they used during the spot were an idea Bob Kerr brought over from the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band he'd left to join the touring NVB; the Bonzos kept it as part of their own stage act for just about their entire existence.

Just in case you're curious, here's a taste of the Bonzos from their first (and best) album:

My pleasure, @Sighlass! Yes, I liked most of the songs by The Ronettes. Yeah, Ronnie's ex-husband Phil Spector … well, what can I say about him.

Well, here he is singing in 1958 (Phil's on the right):

@Sighlass

Can y'all ping me on posts that contain any music or info about Glen Campbell? After he passed, I decided to hop onto YouTube and listen to a few of his songs. I ended up watching about a zillion videos and developed a ridiculous school-girl crush 3333hugs (an embarrassing admission at my advanced age). I don't pay much attention to celebrity or pop culture, so I never knew about the troubled years of his life and was completely ignorant of the Tanya Tucker episode until it became part of the news coverage upon his passing.

Like numerous others, I had little appreciation for his talent when he was living. Once I started digging in, I could have kicked myself for never going to one of his concerts. My BFF went to 3 over the years and said he was a fabulous entertainer. I'm thankful that so many of his performances are preserved on video. If they were vinyl records, I'd have worn them thin by now.  3333hugs

I didn't like this song "My World Fell Down," but I could recognize his voice from the beginning. I've watched all the Glen Campbell bios and extended interviews on YouTube and don't remember his mentioning this. I love learning these little tidbits about his career.
