Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 29th 1968, the Turtles' "You Showed Me" entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on April 25th, 1969 it peaked at #6 (for 1 week) and spent 12 weeks on the Top 100... In 1991 Salt-N-Pepa so-so sample covered version reached #15 on the United Kingdom's Singles chart... The Turtles' record that preceded it on the Top 100 was "Elenore", and it also peaked at #6 and also spent 12 weeks on the Top 100.
Martin from Fresno, CaBeautiful song. I agree with Guy.
Jesse from Madison, WiA very nice early recording that featured the then-oh-so-futuristic Moog Synthesizer. One of the very few tunes to use a blatantly electronic sounding setting on the synth too, in those days. At the time, and through most of the '70s, if you weren't an accepted "synthesizer using band" like Yes or ELP, the producers carefully treated the synth to not be so obvious. In this tune, it can't be mistaken for or questioned to be anything else. The dual square-wave setting is all electronic. That, coupled with the characteristically strong songwriting of the band, is why I so much LOVE this song. Along with "Sound Asleep", this is their best in my eyes.
Leigh from Santa Monica, CaThis song is an ethereal gem. They don't get much better. This is what happened, when you mix Roger McGuinn & Gene Clark...Godspeed
Joycemorrison from Phhaha yea "delightful" is the word! simple lyrics, catch beat... gives me the last song syndrome. =)
Guy from Woodinville, WaOne of those delightful mid-60s Turtles songs. Right up there with the Rascals when it comes to feel-good songs!
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
