Lamont Washington Colored Spade I'm a Colored spade. Yes, "Colored Spade" is another song from the musical, "Hair". Not only would it be considered inappropriate today, it probably would have been considered inappropriate by many in 1968, but at the time it was more commonly used by many biggots to describe some in American society. Lamont Washington who played the African-American character of Hud in the original Broadway production of "Hair" sang it in a cheeky, tongue-in-cheek type a manner to sort of throw it back at the biggots of the time. - Peter

Len Barry 1 2 3  1-2-3 Oh, that's how elementary it's gonna be. The fall 1965 #2 hit, "1 2 3" has an interesting life all it's own. The song started as the Supremes' tune "Ask Any Girl" as written by the Motown writing trio of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland. "Ask Any Girl" released in 1962 didn't go far. Later Len Barry, the former lead singer of the Dovells, got the songwriting trio of Len Madara, David White and Leonard Borisoff to rework "Ask Any Girl" with the smash, "1 2 3" being the result. - Peter

Lesley Gore You Don't Own Me. You don't own me, I'm not just one of your many toys. "You Don't Own Me" was a #2 hit for Lesley Gore in February 1964, ending up just behind the Beatles, who owned the #1 spot with "I Want To Hold Your Hand" during the two weeks that Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me" stayed at #2. "You Don't Own Me" was written by John Madara and David White. "You Don't Own Me" is also very ahead of it's time, for what Lesley Gore sings about. Remember that 1964 was eight years (and nearly nine in terms of the calendar of these two hits being #1) before 1972 when there would be Helen Reddy's "I Am Woman" being #1 and even three years before Aretha Franklin's version of "Respect". Lesley Gore certainly matches in intensity Helen Reddy and Aretha Franklin on "You Don't Own Me" in intensity that she's demanding to stand on her won without the guy putting on her display. - Peter
Lesley Gore I Don't Wanna Be A Loser I don't wanna be a loser. I don't wanna have a broken heart.  - Candy Welty
Lesley Gore It's My Party It's My Party, and I'll cry if I want to.  - anything
Lesley Gore Judy's Turn To Cry Now, it's Judy' turn to cry, Judy's turn to cry, Judy's turn to cry-cry-cry, 'cause Johnny's come back, come back to me. "Judy's Turn To Cry" was the top ten follow-up to Lesley Gore's #1 song, "It's My Party". Lesley Gore beat other artist to the punch by providing her own answer tune to "It's My Party" with "Judy's Turn To Cry" as Johnny leaves Judy (as he did Lesley in "It's My Party") to come back to Lesley. Pure soap opera of the teen variety, 1963 style. "Judy's Turn To Cry" as with "It's My Party" was produced and written by James ingram, a producer and later artist in his own right that would have much success in the future with an artist named, Michael Jackson. - Peter

Lina Fly Fly fly fly fly, fly fly fly, (repeat) I heard her say, life ain't fair, and I felt her when she said it, 'cause i've been there, where she's heading. Absolutely super urban R&B track with beautifully delivered lead vocals and lovely harmonies also. Very uplifting uptempo track produced during the middle part of the 2000's. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. - Mikey J

Los Bravos is yet another example of how the British Invasion of the 1960's was much more international. Los Bravos was a five man group, with four of it's members from Spain and the fifth member (lead singer Michael Volker Kogel aka Mike Kennedy) hailing from Germany. But "Black Is Black" is one great dance and rock tune and is still very popular with many young people -- when they get to hear it. - Peter

Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong sang this tune from the hit Broadway play and took it to #1 in May 1964. That is also him playing the solo trumpet on the record. "Hello, Dolly!" was so popular, both as a Broadway musical and a hit song, that President Lyndon Baines Johnson's re-election campaign (actually finishing up the term of the assassinated JFK) reworded the song and used it in the re-election campaign as, "Hello, Lyndon!" - Peter
