Bloody hell. We've all gone a bit 'All Our Yesterdays' here, haven't we? ; )

I'll stick to the music...

The Beatles were everywhere. Loved the early singles. Also loved daft things like Ha Said The Clown, Peekaboo, If I Were A Rich Man.

By the time I was 7yrs old, I was really into music and I couldn't wait to see TOTP, to catch a glimpse of The Move or Manfred Mann. I can still remember seeing Fire Brigade and Mighty Quinn performed there - I was gutted when Esther & Abi Ofarim knocked the Manfred's off the no.1 slot with the dire Cinderalla Rockafella. I blamed my sister for buying it!!

I loved Lady Madonna and Hey Jude big style, too.

Just been looking at the list of no's for 1968 - some truly great pop records.

Hello Goodbye
Ballad of Bonnie & Clyde
Everlasting Love
Mighty Quinn
Cinderalla Rockafella
Legend of Xanadu
Lady Madonna
What A Wonderful World
Young Girl
Jumpin' Jack Flash
Baby Come Back
I Pretend (Des!!)
Mony Mony
Fire (Arthur Brown)
Do It Again
I've Gotta Get A Message To You
Hey Jude
Those Were The Days
With A Little Help From My Friends
The Good The Bad & The Ugly

and to end on a typically silly note,

Lily The Pink!

OK, there's the odd turkey there, but overall...well, no wonder I loved pop music so much.
