ATF: Copacetic

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



Good Vibrations
The Beach Boys
I love the colorful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
I hear the sound of a gentle word
On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

I'm picking up good vibrations
She's giving me the excitations
Good bop bop
I’m picking up good vibrations
Good vibrations
She’s giving me the excitations
Bop bop
Excitations
She’s giving me the excitations
Good

She’s giving me the excitations

Close my eyes
She is somehow closer now
Softly smile
I know she must be kind
When I look in her eyes
She comes with me to a blossom world

I'm picking up good vibrations
She's giving me the excitations
Good bop bop
I’m picking up good vibrations
Good vibrations
She’s giving me the excitations
Bop bop
Excitations
She’s giving me the excitations

I don't know where
But she sends me there
Oh my my my
What a sensation
Oh my my
What elation

Got to keep those loving good
Vibrations a-happening with her
Got to keep those loving good
Vibrations a-happening with her
Got to keep those loving good
Vibrations a-happening with her

Aaaaah

Good
Godd
Good
Bop bop
Good vibrations
She’s giving me the excitations
Good

Good
Bop bop
Good vibrations

Hurdy Gurdy Man
Donovan
Thrown like a star in my vast sleep
I open my eyes to take a peep
To find that I was by the sea
Gazing with tranquillity
'Twas then when the Hurdy Gurdy man
Came singing songs of love
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy man
Came singing songs of love

Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
,Gurdy he sang
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Gurdy he sang
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Gurdy he sang

Histories of ages past
Unenlightened shadows cast
Down through all eternity
The crying of humanity
'Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy man
Comes singing songs of love,
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy man
Comes singing songs of love

Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Gurdy he sang
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Gurdy he sang

Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Gurdy he sang
Here comes the roly poly man
And he's singing songs of love
Roly poly
Roly poly
Roly poly
Poly he sang
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Gurdy he sang
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Hurdy gurdy
Gurdy he sang
Roly poly
Roly poly…

  1. I liked Donovan and had a few of his albums back in the day. Everyone I knew had a Beach Boys album.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Stephen!!! I had a 45 with Good Vibrations on one side. I do not remember what was on the other side. I must admit that I have no idea why Hurdy Gurdy Man holds such an appeal to me.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Ann!!! As I told Stephen, I have no idea why that song has stuck with me. I cannot remember the last time I heard it over the radio (or anywhere else, for that matter).
