    One of my favorite oldies. Thanks.

    A great song from the 60’s! Awesome to see the performer on crappy 1960’s technology video…lends a certain authenticity to it. Most on-air performances were lip-synched, e.g. American Bandstand. I moan the demise of live or lip-synched performances on TV today. I was pleased to have enjoyed late night “In Concert” and “Saturday Night Special” broadcasts of the early 70’s! A teenaged guy then could never afford to attend concerts like that without being independently wealth! Networks could have never done it if the artists were commanding the $$$$ they are making today. One episode of “In Concert” would cost ABC billions today.

    Also…it is refreshing to see a somewhat refreshing normal-appearing performer singing about an innocent kind of love and commitment that we no longer have. Now we a subjected to threats of violence, abuse and rape in a thoroughly disgusting venue.

    Probably denounced as a stalker.
