This memory of this song came to me this morning--where its still Sunday and it seems like a day for pause and a bit of reflection. Not all Sundays are that way for all of us I know, but at least we all get a "Sunday" now and then.
The American folk-rock band "Spanky and Our Gang" debuted in 1967 with an album that contained three hits, including this one, which topped out at Number 9 on the Billboard Charts.
Owing in part to the tragic early death of group member Malcom Hale, (from a faulty space heater in his home, of all things) the group released only a couple more albums, then broke up in 1969. Elaine "Spanky" MacFarlane--whose named was inspired by television reruns of the old "Our Gang" comedy short films from the 1930's--went on to tour with the Mamas and the Papas as a replacement from the late Mama Cass Elliott who died in 1973. She also had a solo career.
