Bobby Hebb – Sunny

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain
The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here
My Sunny one shines so sincere
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet
Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way
You gave to me your all and all
Now I feel ten feet tall
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny, thank you for the truth you let me see
Sunny, thank you for the facts from A to Z
My life was torn like a windblown sand
And the rock was formed when you held my hand
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny

Sunny, thank you for the smile upon your face
Sunny, thank you for the gleam that shows its grace
You’re my spark of nature’s fire
You’re my sweet complete desire
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain
The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here
My Sunny one shines so sincere
Sunny one so true, I love you

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

“Rhythm of the Rain” is a song performed by The Cascades, released in November 1962. It was written by Cascades band member John Claude Gummoe. On March 9, 1963, it rose to number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and spent two weeks at number 1 on Billboard’s Easy Listening chart. Billboard ranked the record as the number 4 song of 1963.

The CASCADES-Rhythm Of the Rain

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again

The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know
That when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart

Rain please tell me now does that seem fair
For her to steal my heart away when she don’t care
I can’t love another when my hearts somewhere far away

The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart

Rain won’t you tell her that I love her so
Please ask the sun to set her heart aglow
Rain in her heart and let the love we knew start to grow

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again

Oh, listen to the falling rain
Pitter pater, pitter pater
Oh, oh, oh, listen to the falling rain
Pitter pater, pitter pater

L.O.V-E. – Música

“L-O-V-E” is a song recorded by Nat King Cole for his studio album L-O-V-E (1965)

L-O-V-E Nat King Cole (Lyrics)

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don’t break it
Love was made for me and you

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don’t break it
Love was made for me and you
Love was made for me and you
Love was made for me and you

Remember Then – Música

“Remember Then” is a pop song written by Tony Powers and Beverly Ross, and first recorded in 1962 by doo-wop vocal group The Earls. Original copies of The Earls’ version, on the Old Town label, show only Powers as the writer, while some later versions give a writing or co-writing credit to record producer Stan Vincent. BMI lists all three as co-writers.
In late 1962 and early 1963, the song spent nine weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching No. 24, while reaching No. 29 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart. The song has since become widely used by rock and roll revival acts and remains well known for its chorus of “Re-meh-meh, re-meh-meh-mem-ber (oop-shoop) / Re-meh-meh, re-meh-meh-mem-ber (oop-shoop)….” Tony Powers later remembered the song being written with Ross (who also co-wrote the song “Lollipop”)

Lovin’ Spoonful – Daydream

What a day for a daydream
What a day for a daydreamin’ boy
And I’m lost in a daydream
Dreamin’ ’bout my bundle of joy

And even if time ain’t really on my side
It’s one of those days for taking a walk outside
I’m blowing the day to take a walk in the sun
And fall on my face on somebody’s new-mown lawn

I’ve been having a sweet dream
I been dreaming since I woke up today
It’s starring me and my sweet thing
‘Cause she’s the one makes me feel this way

And even if time is passing me by a lot
I couldn’t care less about the dues you say I got
Tomorrow I’ll pay the dues for dropping my load
A pie in the face for being a sleepy bull dog

And you can be sure that if you’re feeling right
A daydream will last long into the night
Tomorrow at breakfast you may pick up your ears
Or you may be daydreaming for a thousand years

What a day for a daydream
Custom-made for a daydreaming boy
And I’m lost in a daydream
Dreaming ’bout my bundle of joy

The Beach Boys – Surfin’ USA

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U. S. A.
Then everybody’d be surfin’
Like Californi-a
You’d seem ’em wearing their baggies
Huarache sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin’ U. S. A.

You’d catch ’em surfin’ at Del Mar
Ventura County line
Santa Cruz and Trestle
Australia’s Narrabeen
All over Manhattan
And down Doheny Way

Everybody’s gone surfin’
Surfin’ U.S.A.

We’ll all be planning that route
We’re gonna take real soon
We’re waxing down our surfboards
We can’t wait for June
We’ll all be gone for the summer
We’re on surfari to stay
Tell the teacher we’re surfin’
Surfin’ U. S. A.

Haggerties and Swamies
Pacific Palisades
San Onofre and Sunset
Redondo Beach L. A.
All over La Jolla
At Wa’imea Bay

Everybody’s gone surfin’
Surfin’ U.S. A.

Everybody’s gone surfin’
Surfin’ U.S. A.

Everybody’s gone surfin’
Surfin’ U.S. A.

There is a Time – Música

The Dillards are an American bluegrass band from Salem, Missouri, popularly known for their appearance as “The Darlings” on The Andy Griffith Show.
– The Andy Griffith Show
Though The Dillards were already an established bluegrass band, their biggest claim to fame is performing musically as members of the fictional Darling family on The Andy Griffith Show, introducing bluegrass to many Americans who had never heard it. This was a recurring role and the Dillards were led by veteran character actor Denver Pyle as their father and jug player, Briscoe Darling. Maggie Peterson played Charlene Darling, their sister and the focus for the attentions of character Ernest T. Bass, played by Howard Morris. The appearances of the Dillards as the Darlings ran between 1963 and 1966. In 1986, the Dillards reprised the role in the reunion show Return to Mayberry. As part of their current tour, Rodney Dillard answers questions about the TV series. He says the songs such as “Dooley” are about people the family knew.

The Dillards & Maggie Peterson – “There Is A Time” – 1964

There is a time for love and laughter
The days will pass like summer storms
The winter wind will follow after
But there is love and love is warm

There is a time for us to wander
When time is young and so are we
The woods are greener over yonder
The path is new the world is free

There is a time when leaves are fallin’
The woods are gray the paths are old
The snow will come when geese are callin’
You need a fire against the cold

There is a time for us to wander
When time is young and so are we
The woods are greener over yonder
The path is new the world is free

INSTRUMENTAL

There is a time for us to wander
When time is young and so are we
The woods are greener over yonder
The path is new the world is free

The path is new the world is free

This verse is not included in this version

So do your roaming in the springtime
And you’ll find your love in the summer sun
The frost will come and bring the harvest
And you can sleep when day is done

The Locomotion – Música

“The Loco-Motion” is a 1962 pop song written by American songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King. “The Loco-Motion” was originally written for Dee Dee Sharp, but Sharp turned the song down. The song is notable for appearing in the American Top 5 three times, each time in a different decade: in 1962 by the American pop singer Little Eva (U.S. No. 1); in 1974 by the American band Grand Funk Railroad (U.S. No. 1); and finally in 1988 by the Australian singer Kylie Minogue (U.S. No. 3).
The song is a popular and enduring example of the dance-song genre: much of the lyrics are devoted to a description of the dance itself, usually performed as a type of line dance. However, the song came before the dance.
“The Loco-Motion” was also the second song to reach No. 1 by two different musical acts in America. The earlier song to do this was “Go Away Little Girl”, also written by Goffin and King. It is one of only nine songs to achieve this feat.

Little Eva – Loco-motion(1962)

Everybody’s doing a brand new dance now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)
I know you’ll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)

My little baby sister can do it with ease
It’s easier than learning your ABCs
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips now
Come on, baby, jump up, jump back
Well, I think you got the knack, whoa, whoa

Now that you can do it let’s make a chain now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)
A chuga chuga motion like a railroad train now
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)

Do it nice and easy now, don’t loose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lotta soul
Come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Move around the floor in a Loco-motion
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you do get the notion
(Come on, baby, do the Loco-motion)

There’s never been a dance that’s so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you’re feeling blue
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

You gotta swing your hips now
That’s right, you’re doing fine
Come on, baby
Mmm, jump up, jump back
You’re looking cool
Mmm, jump up, jump back
