About California Dreamin’

The song from The Mamas And The Papas was first released in 1965 and was certified as a Gold Record the next year. The song has maintained its popularity over the years and was ranked in the 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time by Rolling Stone. The song is about the love and longing for the warmth of Los Angeles while living in the bitter cold of New York. But the meaning transcends beyond that and has gone on to mean different things for several people who swear by the number.

 


About Somebody To Love

Somebody To Love was a song that was first recorded by the Folk Rock band The Great Society. However it was the psychedelic counterculture rock band Jeffersen Airplane that brought it its huge popularity. While the song kept up with the traditional sound of the band it also brought it many new elements to their music, which is why it’s considered to be path breaking in some regards. The lyrics of the song might be in second person but it is easily relatable.

 


About Time Of The Season

The song has reached iconic status for the British Rock Band The Zombies who first released it in 1968. It wasn’t the first single from the Odessey and Oracle album but it was definitely the one that led to its tremendous success. The voice of the lead singer Colin Blunstone is one of the hallmarks of this number, which talks about the emotions behind the Summer Of Love. Now that’s something listeners of all ages can identify with.

About Crystal Blue Persuasion

It’s the 1969 song by Tommy James and The Shandells, which won instant popularity because of its stunning lyrics and sound. In fact that sound was a deviation from what was expected out of Tommy James at that point in his career. The song has more of a gentle tempoed groove and made it to the No 2 on the Billboard Pop Singles Charts. Its video also had a lasting impact on the viewers of the time.

 


About Piece Of My Heart

Sung by Erma Franklin in 1967 it is a romantic love song that has its appeal amongst listeners till date. Erma was renowned singer Aretha Franklin’s older sister and her voice works like magic for this number that was a top ten R & B hit in the US.

Reviews

Brilliant collection
Sharon who bought Country Music Of Your Life revealed in her review that it was the most authentic country music collection for her. She went on expecting the best of country music in the collection and that’s exactly what she got and listens to it often.

 

False claims
Peter who reviewed Country Music Of Your Life complained in his review that he thought he will be getting a collection of 10 CDs plus two bonus CDs as per the claim. But that’s not the case as he found out. Getting only eight CDs and two bonus ones was hugely disappointing for him as he felt cheated.
