THE TURTLES - PART 1

While I was compiling my recent HALCION DAZE mix, I came across the song "Guide for the Married Man" by THE TURTLES. I don't really remember how I came across it (or why, for that matter). Maybe the title seemed to fit what that mix was starting to feel like for me -- something having to do with 1960s domesticity, behind-the-scenes debauchery, etc. The TV series "Mad Men" certainly played a part, as I was then in the process of watching the first season on DVD. Though I came to think the show is overrated (the writing, in particular, but also the acting of everyone other than John Slattery), I loved the look and feel of the thing. The overall vibe, I guess.

Anyway, before I get too far off track... I ultimately deemed the Turtles' tune unsuitable for the mix, but I still liked the song. Previous to that, I'd only really been familiar with a handful of the band's hits -- the great "Happy Together" first and foremost. A deeper investigation seemed in order. Here are the results of said investigation....

[MP3] "Happy Together" [1967]

[
MP3] "You Baby" [1966]

[
MP3] "She's My Girl" [1967]

[
MP3] "You Showed Me" [1968]

[
MP3] "Can I Get to Know You Better" [1966]

[
MP3] "Eve of Destruction" [1965]

I was surprised to read in the Wikipedia link about the connection between The Turtles and Ray Davies. Interesting b/c I always thought some of the Turtles songs sounded like a poppier version of the Kinks.

I love this blog, is really amazing. The turtles are my favorite animal because they are quiet and they never represent a danger for anybody. This is the main reason why i love it. And how big they can be. Simply wonderful.

October dominical costa rica tours
November 1969, USA & I had shed my blue Safari suite top - I think some American hippie may have taken it; they were in awe of this many pocketed 1/2 length shirt-jacket in the Village, where I stayed at 64 Jane Street. It was also a fashionable envy item at Newport & Woodstock. At Live Peace in Toronto some freak offered me a heap of stash if I would trade him that ridiculous, but highly functional and cool pale-blue Safari Suit top.
