When I do random scrolls through YouTube, I find things I’ve been mistaken about for … let’s see … I was born in the ’50s … this came out in the mid-’60s … it’s 2012 … carry the 1 … yeah, pretty much all my life.
Oh, and it’s a great song! But how was I to know it wasn’t an all-guy group?? It was the ’60s. We had to go through a British invasion and a Motown beat and Jersey Boys and the San Francisco sound and Dylan going electric and, tell me again, who was the Walrus?
It was all so confusing.
And they kept saying things like “You can’t tell the boys from the girls.” Plus, we didn’t have MTV! We didn’t know what anybody looked like. Stick a photo of most of the bands of the ’60s in front of me, and I couldn’t tell you who they were. But play three seconds of a song and I can tell you what it is and who sang it.
