December Theme #13

Unlucky for some, but not for this chart topper which was released late in 1969.
Written and performed by Norman Greenbaum, it hit the number one spot in 1970.

Doctor and the Medics released a cover in 1986, and Gareth Gates (runner up to Will Young in the first Pop Idol series) recorded it as a charity single for Comic Relief with The Kumars in 2003. Both covers also made it to Number One here in the UK.

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. Always liked this song, hated the reboots of it.

  2. For me, the original remains the best! Now I’ll have it playing in my head all day (make a change from Christmas music!)

  3. John Holton says:

    Great song, especially the full version…
