    No. I think it might be this song though. I heard her humming it recently

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    Norman Greenbaum's one and only hit was "Spirit in the Sky," or was it his only hit? Recording as Dr. West's Medicine Show & Junk Band, "The Eggplant that Ate Chicago." I remember it as a novelty song, but even as a novelty, it still charted at a respectable #52 on the Billboard in 1966 (I was 10 at the time).

    A band called Sopwith Camel, "Hello, hello." It charted on the charts at #25 in 1967, which is pretty decent.

    New Vaudeville Band, "Winchester Cathedral."

    This song was everywhere when I was a kid. The song reached the Top 10 in the UK and #1 in the US. It sold over three million copies worldwide, earning the RIAA certification of gold disc status, and also won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Song in 1967. They had a couple of hits in Europe after "Winchester Cathedral," but none in the US that I know of.

    I do not remember this band or the song. It's catchy, but I don't recall ever hearing it. If I did, I've blocked it out.

    The band Christie, featuring Jeff Christie on vocals, singing their only known hit, "Yellow River." They were actually fairly prolific over the years, but "Yellow River" was pretty much it.

    I remember Yellow River - and even after all these years I could sing along with it. Catchy.
