The episode of Doctor Who I just watched had a snarky comment about Cliff Richard. :)

4. The Spencer Davis Group – Keep On Running, peaked at #1 for 2 wks in Jan 1966, 7 wks in the Top 10.

10. The Barron Knights – Merry Gentle Pops, peaked at #7 in Jan 1966, 2 wks in the Top 10. Couldn’t find a video of this song. They started out as a legitimate pop band, then started impersonating other bands, doing parodies of current hits and weaving them into a storyline. This record was a Christmas story, as they parodied the hits of the day from Donovan, Marianne Faithfull, The Rolling Stones, The Hollies, The Ivy League, and Peter Cook & Dudley Moore.

Here’s what they looked like, doing a Christmas parody of 1964 songs, a pretty good impersonation of Jimmy Saville about half way through…

6. The Four Seasons – Let’s Hang On, peaked at #6 in Jan 66, 4 wks in the Top 10. “That little chicklet diamond on your hand…” The only live video is a 30 second clip from Ed Sullivan. Hard to find a decent clip with good audio and video:



Here’s the 30 second Ed clip, for what it’s worth:
