The Hollies, 1969. Party on top, serious below

I like to know and report the year that songs charted because they can be seen in their social context. Here we have a delightful 1969 Hollies lip-sync to their rousing Carrie Ann. Its a transitional time in musician appearance, and we see the band wearing the matching suits, previously obligatory for tv appearances, but there is a bit of rebellion going on in the hair department.

To this day, I never quite figured out what the British 1950s school game of ‘Janitor, Monitor’ was.
