  • Lyrics
  • David Gates wrote this after reading about the London Bridge being auctioned off and moved to Arizona.
  • This song marked one of the first uses of a Moog Synthesizer on a Pop record. Paul Beaver of the pioneering synthesizer duo "Beaver & Krause" programmed it, and David Gates played the part on a keyboard. >>

  • Barry from New York, NcGotta love that Moog synthesizer. Back in 1969, the synthesizer was a novelty machine.
    It wasn't until the late 70s/early 80s when synths were abused by musicians worldwide.
