The other day, I posted a video here from an Australian TV show that did a segment on the history of the song, "I'll Never Find Another You," which was a big hit for the Aussie group, The Seekers.
I had another similar piece I was holding onto that that TV show did on the history of what is probably The Seeker's most-lasting hit, "Georgy Girl." But since my pal Mark Evanier had a piece about the song on his site here last night, I figured that it might be a good idea to post that "history" today.
As before, the history starts in 1967 and takes a few nice twists. For a group that broke up in 1968, they've stayed close over the decades, and this affectionate piece features current interviews with Judith Durham and "the Boys" -- Athol Guy, Keith Potger, and Bruce Woodley
A couple of notes about the song. The music is by Tom Springfield, who not only was part of the popular '60s singing group The Springfields, he is also the brother of the extremely popular Dusty Springfield. And the lyrics are by Jim Dale, who is far-better known these days for his acting -- as the Tony-winning star of the Broadway musical Barnum, and even more so to millions as the narrator of all seven Harry Potter audio books.
One other note about the video -- at the 3:00 minute mark, the actor in the scene from the British TV series Men Behaving Badly (which later got adapted for U.S. TV) is Martin Clunes, who is probably best-known to American television viewers for starring in the Doc Martin series.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
