Music Single : The Rascals – Groovin’

download (33)

Birds and bongos and that’s CB “groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon. Reelin couldn’t get away to soon. I can’t imagine anything that’s better. The world is ours when ever we’re together. Doing anything we like to do. All those happy people we could meet just groovin’. Life could be ecstasy you and me endlessly”. Yup, I’m a happy camper when I hear this one. I sing along like a school girl.

CB wants to be in this song. Who says CB isn’t groovy. I’m groovy when I hear this cut. The Rascals cut some of my favorite tunes. When Felix sings the line “Life could be ecstasy…” I’m gone. Slap it on and go groovin with your honey whoever your honey is and life will be better

I’m officially making this my theme song.

(Thanks to Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati for the words)

    I like the original but I also want to hear the version where you sing like a schoolgirl 🏫 👧

      My voice has changed since I first sang along but it’s all in the commitment to the moment. I might sound like hell but I’m in the song %100.
      Question for ya. When it came to a catagory for this tune I was a little stumped. I know you’re a Pop guy. Does it fit that genre?

    The always accurate (?) Wikipedia lists it as ‘R&B, blue-eyed soul.’ What’s great about this tune is how well the music fits the lyrics. May I say as well that there is a rumor – only a rumor mind you – that there is an audio out there on the Deep Web of CB singing this either like A) a schoolgirl or 2) a guy with his shorts too tight. BTW, another misheard lyric. “You and me endlessly.” I like you and me and Leslie better. WAY better. Just the implications.

      I’m ‘Groovin’ today for sure. It’s Sunday. And I will be belting it out like only a “school girl” and CB can.
      Oh yeah that lyric is perfect for the take I did. I’ll be working that in today.

    Good choice for a theme song.

    Felix might be the only Rascal with an active career. He’s always kept busy.
