"The Hollies, an English rock group known for their pioneering and distinctive three part vocal harmony style. The Hollies became one of the leading British groups of the 1960s. Formed by Allan Clarke and Graham Nash in late 1962 as a Merseybeat type music group in Manchester. They enjoyed considerable popularity in many countries (at least 60 singles or EPs and 26 albums charting somewhere in the world spanning over five decades), although they did not achieve major US chart success until 1966 with "Bus Stop".

They are one of the few British pop groups of the early 1960s that have never officially broken up and continue to record and perform..
Oh, what a GREAT song!
A song about old-fashioned love and courtship, “under my umbrella...”
They don’t write songs like that anymore, do they?
Much better song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COiIC3A0ROM
A staple song of Top 40 radio. Loved it.
All the good song-writers are either dead or retired. Besides, today's "musicians" would not recognize harmony and melody if it came up and kicked them in the butt.
Sorry to disagree but you really should start listening to C&W. Best music going these days.
Quite welcome. The sub-woofer on the floor under the desk unties my shoelaces with that song. (grin)
A lot of good movie music has also come out in recent years.
Ha! That’s great. Brings back some memories for sure.
Here’s a crazy song by Beck but I just love the beat and the guitar work:
I learned what they were singing for the first time after the Internet--with its lyrics sites-came along.
Can’t agree with you at all. Modern C&W is like bad pop music with a twang. Just awful! Where’s the REAL C&W?????!!!!!!!!!!!
There has been some great movie music. Last of The Mohicans soundtrack is outstanding. I get so caught up in the music...I forget to watch the movie.
Bus Stop is a great Hollies song.
But this is my personal fav...
