Let's all get up and dance to a song

So one of the fulltime replacements at work has a Spotify account and used it today to play Golden Oldies from my childhood and adolescence. I may have to do the same, because I've never been able to make such a comprehensive compilation myself. Lacking a record player, say, and finding all 60s Greatest Hits CDs to be terrible in sound, and not techy enough to master mp3s or whatever the format is. Much better to let Spotify play it for me.

But it was *weird* having those forgotten bands suddenly thrust upon me again. The Beau Brummels, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Chad and Jeremy, The Tremeloes, The Buckinghams, The Exciters... Good times, guys, good times.

(R's mom was born in the late 50s so no, these weren't a hit before she was born, but close, very close.)
