The Turtles – 1968
Let’s talk seriously here for a moment. Future husband, are you listening, wherever you are? Forget John Cusack and Peter Gabriel for a second. (Actually, just forget John Cusack. I love Peter Gabriel.) (Damnit. I love John Cusack too.) If you serenade me with this song, in a velvet jacket/ruffled shirt combo just like that… consider your work done.
Aside: How did John Cusack go from being so gosh darn cute in the ’80s to that dude in mandals from Con Air? But. He’s not Nic Cage so… I count my blessings.
