Can't Trust That Day

Forty-five years ago, "Monday, Monday" by the Mamas & the Papas reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. It was their only number one hit, although a few other songs got significant radio play. They were somewhat before my time, but I'm aware to their legacy on the "pop-ification" of the Folk sound. Moreover, their sound is evocative of their era.

I'm not really big on this style of music, but it's interesting to give it a hearing every so often. The vocal harmonics are very attractive. The song structures are engaging. It's pretty good stuff.

Here's a vid:

BTW, as a native Californian, I prefer this is the song a prefer. ;-)
