Bonus Video: St. Louis Union – Girl, peaked at #16 in Feb 66, yep the Beatles song. Rubber Soul was a goldmine for British artists taking their whack at covering the Beatles…

Bonus Video: Lulu – Call Me, didn’t chart, even though she sang it on Top of the Pops! Originally recorded by Petula Clark for a UK EP in 1965. Sorry about the audio quality here, there’s only 2 ‘videos’ of this on YT, both sound ghastly…





To make up for it, I’ll give you Petula’s version:

Bonus video: Evie Sands original version of The Hollies "I Can't Let Go".
A great version which went absolutely nowhere, didn't even crack Billboard's Hot 100...

"Elusive Butterfly" is a real guilty favorite. Such an upbeat, happy song. "Across my dreams, with nets of wonder, I chase the bright, elusive butterfly of love..."

10. The Bachelors – The Sound of Silence
peaked at #4 in April 66, 7 wks in the TT. Simon and Garfunkel’s original #1 smash in the States didn’t even crack the UK charts, was it even released as a single? Their first chart hit Homeward Bound will show up in a few weeks…
