Song Lyric Sunday 24th February

This week February 24, 2019,  Jim give us the theme of Harmony/Melody/Music
https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/64726988/posts/2184063180
I enjoy music, decent music, not the loud noise blasting my eardrums from passing cars which chances are would remain stationery without the bass vibrations giving them forward propulsion.

Westlife, The Spice Girls, Il Divo, Backstreet Boys, Beach Boys, all groups with fabulous harmonies and melodious music.

I’m going back a bit now, but does anyone remember this?
It was one of many singles I bought as a teenager and played to death.

Move in a Little Closer Baby:
Songwriters: O’Connor, Capitanelli

Recorded by Harmony Grass in 1968 and peaked at No 24 in the UK charts in January 1969. The B Side was ‘Happiness is Toy Shaped’.

It was also a hit for Mama Cass Elliott in 1969

When your world’s closing in
And there’s no place to hide
And you’re needing a friend
To be there, at your side
Send a message to me
I’ll arrive and you’ll see
Whether you’re right or wrong
This is where you belong
Give it a try and you’ll see

Move in a little closer, baby
You’ve got to keep me closer, baby
Come in a little closer, baby
Together, we can make it happen
Wait and see

When your troubles arrive
Pouring down from the sky
And you’re feeling the down
You don’t know what to do

Give a holler to me
I’m the one that you need
Reach for my helping hand
Then you will understand
How simplified it can be

Move in a little closer, baby
You’ve got to keep me closer, baby
Come in a little closer, baby
Together, we can make it happen
Wait and see

Move in a little closer, baby
You’ve got to keep me closer, baby
Come in a little closer, baby
Together, we can make it happen
Wait and see

Move in a little closer, baby
You’ve got to keep me closer, baby
Come in a little closer, baby …

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I don’t think I’ve heard this one before. It’s kinda nice.

    • Mama Cass’s version didn’t get that high in the charts, and this one didn’t get that much airplay, but it was 1968/9 so a bit before your time. I liked the harmonies and tempo. It was good to dust to!

  2. colonialist says:

    I remember the chorus, not so much the between bits.

  3. willowdot21 says:

    Love love …they don’t write songs like this anymore….. Did I just say that ??? ❤️

  4. It really reminds me of the 60s and I love the vocal harmonies and the drumming. I never heard this song or this group, but I did enjoy listening to it.

  5. John Holton says:

    I was 12-13 in ’68-’69, and have never heard it before, either the Harmony Grass or the Mama Cass version. Mama Cass’s version only reached #58, which could explain that. I kind of like her cover better, but it’s a great song and I know what it’s like to buy a record, take it home and play the grooves off of it. Great choice!

  6. Why haven’t I heard of this? It’s a great choice Di and it has nice harmonies. 💕🙂
