Green Zombies at the Bus Stop

Posted by shanoah on June 27, 2008

I can sympathise about the dentist, Sean. There are a couple teeth I really need to have a dentist look at, actually. I keep missing making an appointment.

Pity I’ve already played “Dentist“, from Little Shop of Horrors here.

Anyways, time to revisit the 60’s yet again. What can I say; I’ve been enjoying hunting up old music and posting it, so hopefully all of you have been as well.

Green Onions – Booker T. & The M.G.’s (1962)

Who hasn’t heard this classic groove? This is probably the most popular thing they’ve done…

Bus Stop – The Hollies (1966)

The opening of this song is so classic. Besides, I have an affinity with bus stops, relying on public transportation myself.

She’s Not There – The Zombies (probably 1964)

Thought it was worth pointing out that the Zombies had at least one good song besides “Time of the Season”.

If I can find a find a song other then the bands most well known song, I often prefer to play that instead, to make things interesting, and this was the Zombies first big hit. There are exceptions, obviously.
