the music from 1968 was so creative and fresh that it's still being covered by other artists these days.

i'll play three versions of fairfield friend mac gayden and buzz cason's "everlasting love" (you won't be bored, i promise you), plus original 1968 releases by burt bacharach and covers by...well, lots of people.

aimee mannmany people first heard aimee mann's [left] version of the song "one" during the opening credits of the movie "magnolia" (which i will play) or maybe the raucus climax of three dog night's version, but today you'll the orignal lonely tune by harry nilsson. the doors' "hello i love" was amped up a bit by oleander's 2000 version, with an intro built around the doors' outro bassline.

my favorite this week is sergio mendes & brazil 66's version of "the look of love."

all the songs are listed here.
