Thanks for posting.  This is a very upbeat song - about how to make life more positive.  Given the time period, it was a relief to the general momentum of society to try & remember people are basically good

CNN's 1968 special was good. First two episodes last night and the final two tonight. Will miss those due to the Caps game so will have to catch up later.

They have been playing this song.  Learned this a few years ago but took so long to master the parts that I was too tired in the end to put it all together. Will try and take that on as a summer project.

Got that on the DVR, but been super busy so haven't been able to watch it yet. Probably will tonight before Westworld.

The Wrecking Crew is a 2008 American documentary film about the Los Angeles-based group of session musicians known as the Wrecking Crew, famed for having played on numerous hit recordings throughout the 1960s.

It's release was delayed until 2015, partly to obtain the rights to play clips from up to 110 songs. They played on records made by the Beach Boys, the Mamas & the Papas, The Byrds, the Monkees, Ike and Tina Turner, Glen Campbell, Jan and Dean, Righteous Brothers, the Ronettes, the Crystals, the Everly Brothers, the 5th Dimension, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Sonny & Cher, Jan and Dean, the Association, the Partridge Family, and Mason Williams' 1968 hit "Classical Gas", among others.

The film played for one night only at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, MD last month.

I am recommending “Billions” on Showtime. It’s absolutely fantastic. The acting is great.  Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis are terrific. The supporting characters are also great. I LOVE Maggie Siff for instance. The writing is great. The story is great.  The show is just great. I highly, highly recommend it. It’s riveting and must see TV for me now. It’s my favorite show now that The Americans is gone.

The Americans finale was, indeed, fantastic, although I was kinda hoping Phillip or Elizabeth would die.

I finally got into Shameless (the American version) earlier this year and got through the finale of season 6 last night.

Amazing show.  Great writing, acting, storylines, and just the right mix of realism and surrealism to keep things entertaining.

I was hooked on that show. But gave up when Frank got the Liver transplant. Macy does a fantastic, fantastic job. But he did it too well. I hated Frank so much I couldn’t watch anymore...

I didn't mind.  Frank is like a heel in wrestling.  Totally despicable, but he gives the show spice.  He's so absurdly full of crap that I can't help but laugh.

Now Debbie after season 3--she is very hard to tolerate for me.

But no matter what happens with any specific character, there's so much intrigue going on with everyone that nothing ever feels "ruined" by a frustrating subplot (e.g. Fiona's weird-ass first marriage).  That's what I like about the show.  Does a good job of weaving a lot of unique but somehow interesting storylines.  I feel like most modern dramas that try that usually have something weak in the lot, like when Dexter kept trying to make everyone care about Quinn, Batista, and Laguerta.
