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.
