Lyrics
All men must have someone, have someone
Who would never take advantage
Of a love bright as the sun
Someone to understand them,
And you just may be the one
All men must have someone, have someone
Who would never take for granted
All the pleasures and the fun
Someone to stand beside them
And you just may be the one
I saw when you walked by
The love light in your eye
And I knew I must try
To win you more than just a friend,
I'm starting near the end,
And here I go again
All men must have someone, have someone
Who would never take advantage
Of a love bright as the sun
Someone to stand beside them
And you just may be the one
Someone to understand them,
And you just may be the one

Dickey Lee sings his classic 1962 teenage tragedy hit "Patches", set to a slideshow of photos that illustrate the song's deeply tragic lyrics. You might want to have tissues on hand for this tearjerker.

Glen Campbell sings "Wichita Lineman" on The Smothers Brothers in 1968 or 1969

Neil Diamond sings his 1967 hit, "Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon" - It ends a smidge short, but is still enjoyable

Singer/song writer Bobbie Gentry sings "Ode To Billie Joe" in 1967 on The Smothers Brothers. Bobbie would not divulge what was thrown off the bridge even though everyone was dying to know and constantly asked her confirm if it was an engagement ring, a draft card, or an aborted baby. The closest she came was to say "suppose it was a ring", but it seemed as if she was just throwing that out there so people would stop asking.
Lyrics
It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin' cotton, and my brother was balin' hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And mama hollered out the back door, y'all, remember to wipe your feet
And then she said, I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today, Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge
And papa said to mama, as he passed around the blackeyed peas
Well, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense; pass the biscuits, please
There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow
And mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow
Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge
And brother said he recollected when he, and Tom, and Billie Joe
Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show
And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last Sunday night?
I'll have another piece-a apple pie; you know, it don't seem right
I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw Ridge
And now ya tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge
And mama said to me, child, what's happened to your appetite?
I've been cookin' all morning, and you haven't touched a single bite
That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor, dropped by today
Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh, by the way
He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge
And she and Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge
A year has come and gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joe
And brother married Becky Thompson; they bought a store in Tupelo
There was a virus going 'round; papa caught it, and he died last spring
And now mama doesn't seem to want to do much of anything
And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge
And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Lyrics:

In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty
I want to be in the warm heart of your loving mind
To feel you all around me
And to take your hand along the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky
I want to hide a while behind your smile
And everywhere I'd look, your eyes I'd find
For me to love you now, would be the sweetest thing
T'would make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near, to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind
Standing in your heart is where I want to be
And long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Lyrics:

No one told me about her
The way she lied
Well, no one told me about her
How many people cried
Well, it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there, oh oh oh
Nobody told me about her
What could I do
Well, nobody told me about her
Though they all knew
Well, it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there
Let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acted, the color of her hair
Her voice is soft and cool
Her eyes are clear and bright
But she's not there
Well, it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there, oh oh oh
Well, let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acted, the color of her hair
Her voice is soft and cool
Her eyes are clear and bright
But she's not there

Lyrics

Girl, I can't let you do this
Let you walk away
Girl, how can I live through this
When you're all I wake up for each day
Baby, you're my soul and my heart's inspiration
You're all I've got to get me by
You're my soul and my heart's inspiration
Without you, baby, what good am I?
I never had much goin'
But at least I had you
How can you walk out knowin'
I ain't got nothin' left if you do
Baby, you're my soul and my heart's inspiration
You're all I've got to get me by
You're my soul and my heart's inspiration
Without you, baby, what good am I? Oh, what good am I?
Baby, I can't make it without cha
And I'm, I'm tellin' ya, honey
You're my reason for laughin', for cryin', for livin' and for dyin'
Baby, I can't make it without you
Please, I'm begging you, baby
If you go, it will kill me
I swear it, dear, my love can't bear it
You're my soul and my heart's inspiration
You're all I've got to get me by
You're my soul and my heart's inspiration
Without you, baby, what good am I? What good am I?

The Monkees perform "Pleasant Valley Sunday", released in 1967. This is a clip from their hit TV show.

Lyrics

The local rock group down the street
Is trying hard to learn their song
Seranade the weekend squire, who just came out to mow his lawn

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one seems to care

See Mrs. Gray she's proud today because her roses are in bloom
Mr. Green he's so serene, He's got a t.v. in every room

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don't understand

Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul and make it hard for me to see
My thoughts all seem to stray, to places far away
I need a change of scenery

Ta Ta Ta...

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday...

Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra sing "Summer Wine" , a blend of pop and country that was released in 1967.

"Summer Wine"

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to
A song that I had only sang to just a few
She saw my silver spurs and said let's pass some time
And I will give to you...summer wine
Oh..oh..oh...summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you...summer wine
Oh...summer wine

My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak
I tried to get up but I couldn't find my feet
She reassured me with the unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me...more summer wine
Woh..woh..oh...summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you...summer wine
Mm...summer wine

When I woke up, the sun was shining in my eyes
My silver spurs were gone, my head felt twice its size
She took my silver spurs, a dollar and a dime
And left me craving for...more summer wine
Oh..oh..summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off those silver spurs, help me pass the time
And I will give to you my summer wine
Oh...oh...summer wine

Jan and Dean perform "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena" on The T.A.M.I. Show, October 1964.
Lyrics:
The little old lady from Pasadena
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
Has a pretty little flowerbed of white gardenias
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
But parked in a rickety old garage
Is a brand new, shiny red, super-stock Dodge

And everybody's sayin' that there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from Pasadena
She drives real fast and she drives real hard
She's the terror of Colorado Boulevard
It's the little old lady from Pasadena

If you see her on the street, don't try to choose her
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
You might drive a goer but you'll never lose her
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
Well, she's gonna get a ticket now sooner or later
'Cause she can't keep her foot off the accelerator

And everybody's sayin' that there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from Pasadena
She drives real fast and she drives real hard
She's the terror of Colorado Boulevard
It's the little old lady from Pasadena

(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
The guys come to race her from miles around
But she'll give 'em a length, then she'll shut 'em down

And everybody's sayin' that there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from Pasadena
She drives real fast and she drives real hard
She's the terror of Colorado Boulevard
It's the little old lady from Pasadena

(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
(Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
