"Different Drum"-Stone Ponys...who was that female singer that wore no shoes?
"The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)"-Harpers Bizarre...Simon & Garfunkle did it and they may have written it.
"The In Crowd"-Dobie Grey OR The Ramsey Lewis Trio (Instrumental)
"Walking My Cat Named Dog"-Norma Tenega...I still have the 45RPM
"Cant Seem To Make You Mine"-The Seeds...weird song with great guitar/keyboard solo.

Ed S. - who was that female singer that wore no shoes?

The one that comes to mind is early/ mid-60s English singer Sandie Shaw. Don't think she had any chart success here so it may not be who you are thinking of.

The singer of the Stone Ponys wore no shoes...Linda Ronstadt.
Sandi Shaw had a big hit here in the Los Angeles area called "Girl don't Come".

Yes, Paul Simon wrote The 59th Street Bridge Song, and also Red Rubber Ball, a hit for the Cyrcle.

spottymuldoon and all...
After I posted to your post, I realized that I remember hearing "(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me" done by Sandie Shaw on the radio. So I went to her albums here on Amazon and yes she had that playing on the radio too. They are both really great songs and I am glad you reminded me of her. I am sampling her greatest hits package and I am liking what I hear. I think I am going to have a Sandie Shaw album soon.
I might add that not all radio market regions in the United States played the same songs. So my posts are relating to the stations I heard in the Los Angeles area, KRLA, KHJ, and KFWB.
Another big song here was "Whittier Boulevard" by the Midnighters. I have lived in Whittier all but the first five years of life and I kinda think that was a regional hit. Whittier Boulevard was taken over on Friday and Saturday Nights by teen cruisers by the hundreds...bumper to bumper traffic of guys yelling at girls and everybody trying to hook up. I was one of them and had a great time meeting girls and racing other cars with the radio cranked waaaaaaaaayyyyy up with my buddy Mike. I met my first steady gal on Whittier Boulevard and Mike met his wife one cruising night at Knotts Berry Farm Amusement park.

ED -

I didn't mention Linda as I assumed you knew she was the singer. I know both the S. Shaw songs you've mentioned, didn't realize they were hits of any kind here. The only song I have of hers now is the rather bizarre cover she does of Sympathy For The Devil on a record titled Covers Of A Rolling Stone.

That's what I get when I type from memory. And I've become too accustomed to this fancy computer to check my spelling. Of course, no computer spell check system would have any idea of The Cyrkle!

I was wondering too, I saw you mention something about the live Monkees tv special on the Monkees favorite songs thread. There is a cd of that concert, and a 2 cd set of three concerts from that tour. They weren't very impressive in concert but it sounds like that didn't bother the thousands of screaming teenage a bit!

ED S. says: are too good to me. I have been playing the Amazon Samples Of Sandie Shaw from her re-mastered "The Very Best Of Sandie Shaw" for the past couple of hours and looked a 11 pages of Sandie Shaw records on ebay, almost all of it for sale in Europe or South America. Not much British stuff so she must have a cult following. I binged "pictures of Sandie Shaw" and WOW. She was stunning. In the 1980's, she covered the Smiths "Hand In Glove" with The Smiths as the backing band. Morrissy is a fan. And shoes!
I genuinly like her. She was the first British singer to win the Eurovision Award, 1967. She was big in France and did an album in French.
