I bought a mamas and the papas greatest hits album at Walmart for five bucks. Turns out I only like “California Dreaming” and “Monday Monday.”
California dreaming got me thinking of a mix CD of my favorites from the AM station that’s since switched formats to talk radio. :mad:
I also like “Reach out” by the Four Tops, and “Mr. Monday” by The Original Caste. (sorry for no YouTube links; PC is off and I suck at Tapatalk). Something about songs of this era in a minor key that sounds really fresh to my twenty something ears! I studied classical music, and I find these surprisingly upbeat compared to the normal, dreary treatment minor key melodies got in western European classical music.
TL;DR version: know any other old pop/rock/motown/soul songs, which are primarily in a minor key? I smell a new play list!
