Surprisingly this was The Lovin’ Spoonfuls only number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  It made number 1 on this day August 23, 1966 and stayed for 3 weeks.  John Sebastian’s younger brother Mark wrote this song and John made it a bit more upbeat.  You gotta love those ‘pork chops,’ ahh the 60’s.  Thanks to Alquit2 for the video.

Another chart topper today, only in 1974 was Tell Me Something Good by Rufis featuring Chaka Khan.  This is a really good video to get your FUNK ON, Live in NEW YORK’S Central Park! sadly the author did not allow embedding but it is worth the click.
