    Recently, I've been picking out some obscure songs from the '60s and sharing them with friends who haven't heard them before to get their reactions.

    This song - the original version of "Mommy and Daddy" by The Monkees - has gotten some interesting responses, usually "Interesting, I didn't know The Monkees had songs like that?"



    Anyone have any other obscure songs from the '60s they like to share and if so what kind of responses do you get?

    Buzzsaw by The Turtles. Is that obscure?
    "OK, they weren't just a pop band."

    I share obscure songs all the time. The 60's is a never ending pool. Since "Buzzsaw" by the Turtles was mentioned, check out "To See the Sun." It wasn't originally released during the 60's due to White Whale deeming it as not being commercial enough to follow up "Happy Together."

    How about Kinky Boots sung by Patrick Macnee and Honor Blackman (The Avengers)?

    The song I normally bring up in these kind of discussions is Our National Anthem by The Gentle Soul. The response is usually "How was this not a hit?"

    Here's another obscure number, Weekend People by Mystic. They're still around apparently.
    Just need to clarify that it's not the George Martin who co-produced this - it's someone else who happens to share the same name.

    Awesome cover version by the band Africa from 1968. Takes an odd turn halfway through...

    Marmalade-- "I See The Rain" Feels/sounds like something the Beatles could have recorded in late '65 or in 1966.

    Not sure how obscure this but it's nothing like their well known hit.

    That's pretty cool. Who did they bring in to play that organ part?

    Cool. I LOVE surf songs that sound like all six strings are .052 gauge on the lead guitar!!!!! So heavy!

    Sounds sort of like if Lou Adler had produced the Sunshine Company.
