Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
It's 1964, and the British are coming. America seems thrilled.
Big hits in 1964: All Day and All of the Night (The Kinks), As Tears Go By (Marianne Faithfull), Dancing in the Street (Martha and the Vandellas), Ferry Cross the Mersey (Gary and the Pacemakers), Gloria (Them), Hello Dolly! (Louis Armstrong), I Get Around (The Beach Boys), I'm Into Something Good (Herman's Hermits), My Guy (Mary Wells), The Way You Do the Things You Do (The Temptations), Pretty Woman (Roy Orbison), and You Really Got Me (The Kinks).
It was, of course, a massive year for the Beatles, but the Supremes had a very good year as well.
