  • Woke up this mornin' feelin' fine
    There's somethin' special on my mind
    Last night I met a new girl in the neighbourhood, whoa yeah
    Somethin' tells me I'm into something good (Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')

    She's the kind of girl who's not too shy
    And I can tell I'm her kind of guy
    She danced close to me like I hoped she would (she danced with me like I hoped she would)
    Somethin' tells me I'm into something good (Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')

    We only danced for a minute or two
    But then she stuck close to me the whole night through
    Can I be fallin' in love
    She's everthing I've been dreamin' of
    She's everthing I've been dreamin' of

    I walked her home and she held my hand
    I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand
    So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
    (I asked to see her and she told me I could)
    Somethin' tells me I'm into something good (somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
    (Somethin' tells me I'm into somethin', ahhh)

    I walked her home and she held my hand
    I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand
    So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
    (I asked to see her and she told me I could)
    Somethin' tells me I'm into something good (somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
    Somethin' tells me I'm into something good (somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
    To something good, oh yeah, something good (somethin' tells me I'm into somethin')
    To something good, something good, something good Writer/s: Carole King, Gerry Goffin

  • Jennifur SunI swear I hear something that sounds like an organ on this song but if it is wonder who played it, or am i wrong always makes me happy when i hear it
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaWish I could thank Carol for this song - it is such a fun one.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 13th 1965, a video of Herman Hermits performing ""I'm Into something Good" was aired on the ABC-TV program 'Shindig!'...
    And twenty-seven days later on February 9th, 1965 the group performed the song on the NBC-TV program 'Hullabaloo!'...
    {See next post below}.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 9th 1965, Herman's Hermits performed "I'm Into Something Good" on the NBC-TV program "Hullabaloo!"...
    Four months earlier on October 11th, 1964 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #79; and on December 6th it peaked at #13 (for 1 week) and also spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
    I guess for Herman's Hermits the number thirteen was not an unlucky number; for their next nine releases all made the Top 10 and two reached #1 ("Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter" for 3 weeks in 1965 and "I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am" for 1 week, also in 1965)...
    "This Door Swings Both Ways" broke the string of Top 10 hits, it reached #12.
  • Jack from Lucerne Valley, CaHerman's Hermits never recorded for Cameo-Parkway. They, and the Animals, were on M-G-M in America, Columbia in Britain. Klein obtained their music in a deal seperate from Cameo-Parkway.
  • Murray from Liverpool, England, EnglandSorry to have to repeat myself, but in the official UK charts, "Will you (still) love me tomorrow" was NOT a No1 in the UK - it only got to No. 3!!!
  • Dill from Alexandria, VaToo bad about the jerk who won't allow the records into movies. But all these people saying they can't listen without thinking of The Naked Gun -- maybe it's a better thing that some of the great records are NOT in certain crappy movies.
    (Naked Gun was good, though.)
  • Murray from Liverpool, England, EnglandVictor - no, "Will You (Still) Love Me Tomorrow" only got to No 3 in the UK charts. I have the official UK chart book here that confirms this. And Kelli, they sung like that because that's how they spoke - they were English, from Manchester. Nothing is more annoying than British singers putting on fake American accents!
  • Tony from Red Deer, AbIt almost pains to say it, but one the BEST versions of this I have ever heard was performed by, of all people, David Cassidy and the Partridge Family!
  • Mike from Hueytown , AlYeah I always think of the Naked gun movie too. What a goofy, cheesy song hahahahaha
  • Edward Pearce from Ashford, Kent, EnglandRegarding Victor's comment questioning if this was Goffin and King's only UK number one hit, as a songwriting team they were prolific writers of hit songs, but no others topped the UK charts. The Shirelles hit "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" did top the American charts but only reached #4 in the UK. The closest they have come to repeating this feat was probably in 1988 when Kylie Minogue's cover of 'The Loco-Motion' peaked at #2.
  • James from Vidalia, GaThis song was also used in the Leslie Nielson film "Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad" in a scene with Priscilla Presley that looks like a music video. I always think of that movie every time I hear it.
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumA very good song, I also like "A must to avoid" and other songs of Herman Hermits. Carol King and Gerry Goffin have written many beautiful songs, like "Every breath I take" for Gene Pitney produced by Phil Spector. You can find this song on the "Back to Mono" cd-box of
    Phil Spector.
  • Kelli from Cedar Rapids, IaHermans Hermits always exaggerated their English accents for affect...it's very irritating.
  • Victor from Haworth, EnglandI assume you mean it was Hermans Hermits only Number 1 hit in the UK. Carol King and Gerry Goffin had over 80 UK chart hits within a prolific 5 years. Many of them were No1s, starting with the Shirelles, "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow".
