Song "It's Good News Week" 1965

Post by Norm »

Please don't use Google or Bing, but can anyone remember who sang it?

For some reason I remember the song and the words and can sing it at our Karaoke sessions.

It came out in the mid-sixties about the same time as "Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire.

Thanks Leon, I knew the answer but it was an unusual single.
For some reason I remember all the words and I sang it in the car as we were driving to our bar today.
Debbie was mystified because she'd never heard of it.
She's heard me sing "Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire many times but this one popped up out of the blue so I thought I'd ask the question. Thanks for commenting on it.

Quite true Leon, never heard from again.

Looking back I suppose there were a lot of 'one-hit wonders'.

Scott McKenzie: "San Francisco"

Actually Barry McGuire himself with "Eve..."

Peter Sarstedt: "Where do you go to my lovely"

- and so on.
