Spanky & Our Gang



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song was the follow-up to Spanky & Our Gang's hits "Sunday Will Never Be The Same" and "Lazy Day," and it scored quite well, peaking at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100. This was their last Top 30 hit, though they continued to score a number of minor hits until October 1968, when lead guitarist Malcolm Hale died of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning at the age of 27. Front woman Elaine "Spanky" McFarlane achieved some success as a solo artist, sometimes fronting for The Mamas & The Papas after the tragic death of the late Cass Elliot.

First song that made me fall in love with a mystery girl in High School. She became my wife but it only lasted 5yrs. This song still pulls on my heart when i hear it.

This is one of the most sublime,subtle,sexy as well as romantic songs I've ever heard. I remember riding in the back seat of my parents' car as a child listening to Spanky McFarlane's voice and feeling calm & transported to a wonderful place. And even tho I was so young, after hearing this song, somehow I was never the same again; but in a good way.

Did they really trade their guitarist to The Doobie Brothers? Are they named after something naughty? And what's up with the band name?
