Herman’s Hermits had some really catchy songs over the years, and I like most all of them. I don’t remember seeing their movie, but I probably did at one time.

***

Here’s the Wiki article about the movie:

Hold On! is a 1966 musical film directed by Arthur Lubin and starring Peter Noone, Shelley Fabares, Herbert Anderson, and Sue Ane Langdon. The film features performances by Herman’s Hermits and stars the band as fictionalized versions of themselves. The soundtrack was released as an album, also called Hold On!.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hold_On!_(album)

“Hold On”, by Herman’s Hermits, was released in 1966, for the movie they made of the same name. It is on the MGM (US/Canada), and Columbia (UK) labels.

***

Hold on, hold on

You’ve got a girl who really loves you
(You’ve got a girl who really cares)
She’ll do anything you ask her to
Yet you treat her wrong
Oh, you just string her along
Brother, if I were in your shoes

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she’s mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

She does her best to make you happy
(She always does her very best)
You do your best to make her blue
Buddy, you’ve got it made
But you’d rather go and play
I know one thing for sure, if I were you

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she’s mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

She’s always there each time you need her
(Each time you need her she is there)
She gives her love so willingly
But you just don’t care
You know that she’ll be there
How I wish she’d felt that way about me

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she’s mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

Hold on, hold on

This is a song I like a lot. I only thought it was an original Herman’s Hermits song, but I found out different.

I’ve included the original, by Skeeter Davis, and also the extra one by Herman’s Hermits. I actually prefer theirs the best.

The lyrics are on the first video.

Here’s a little bit about the song from the Wiki article:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_End_of_the_World_(song_by_Arthur_Kent_and_Sylvia_Dee)

The End of the World” is a pop song written by composer Arthur Kent and lyricist Sylvia Dee, who often worked as a team. They wrote the song for American singer Skeeter Davis, and her recording of it was highly successful in the early 1960s, reaching the Top-5 on four different charts, including #2 on the main Billboard Hot 100. It spawned many cover versions.

***

“End of the World”, by Skeeter Davis, was released as a single in1962. It was written for her by Arthur Kent and Sylvia Dee, and is on the RCA Victor label.

This is one of my weird photos. It shows a gallon of milk (plastic jug/blue top).

What makes it weird is that it is outside in taxi & valet parking breezeway at the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport!

It was just sitting there on a pedestal, right by the street. No one was around to claim it.

For today’s look back at love songs, we have the decade of the 60s. There are so many good songs from this time period, and I remember lots of them, as this was my teen years. We listened to the radio all the time, bought the long playing LPs and the single song 45s to play on our stereos and record players. We had our favorite bands, and read about them in our teen magazines, cutting out photos to tape on our bedroom walls.

Herman’s Hermits was one of my favorite bands of the time, so I chose this song for today.

Thanks, Bee, for giving us a good reason to listen to some old favorite songs, and share them here. 🙂

“There’s a Kind of Hush”, by Herman’s Hermits, was released in 1967, from their album, “There’s a Kind of Hush All Over the World”. It was written by Geoff Stephens and Les Reed,

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight.
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love.
You know what I mean.
Just the two of us and nobody else in sight.
There’s nobody else and I’m feeling good just holding you tight.

So listen very carefully.
Closer now and you will see what I mean.
It isn’t a dream.
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever.

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight.
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love.
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la

So listen very carefully.
Closer now and you will see what I mean.
It isn’t a dream.
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight.
All over the world people just like us are fallin’ in love.
Yeah, they’re fallin’ in love.
Hush, they’re fallin’ in love.
Hush.

You know what irritates me? When I look for the written out lyrics, and they don’t completely follow the words being sung. This is one of those kind, but the closest I could find. Then again, this video was taken from a live performance somewhere, so maybe they changed it up for that.
