Make Them Understand

Album: Birmingham Beat (1965)

Songfacts®:

  • Like the A-side "Take My Hand," this was written by Roy Wood, the two songs being his first songwriting credits on vinyl. More downtempo than "Take My Hand," it is a rather bland song typical of the '60s but without any obvious Beatles influence. However, although Mike Sheridan and his variously named bands didn't last long, Roy Wood would soon go on to bigger and greater things beginning with The Move later that year. >>
