"A Little '60's Tune"

CD single "A LITTLE '60's TUNE" was released late in 1999 several months before my debut CD "THE FAME GAME"(released September 2000). It is a tribute song to the '60's, but more importantly was written at the dawn of the Millennium as we all had fears of "Y2K" and pending doom; our fears were fanned either by religious belief or Orwellian novels---to some it was just another New Year--but I think most of us ran the gamut of nail-biting to preparing for the worst by stocking shelves with canned goods...and yes, a select few were ready for Armageddon with stockpiles of ammo and gas masks. With all these thoughts in mind, this little ditty which intersperses musical riffs and vocals from several famous '60's songs, intended to be an uplifting Beatlesque/Monkees-like tune that would infuse us all with hope. The main chorus, "Peace, Love and Happiness, who would have ever guessed, we could have reached it in 1999--what a state of bliss, who could have pictured this, they sang about in in 1969"...says it all. The idea of the song was to foster that innocent Summer of Love feeling of the '60's and have that prevail into the New Millennium. When I wrote the melody, I realized it had an overwhelming '60's feel to it and so the song essentially wrote itself--"This Little '6o's Tune came to me in my sleep"...it actually did. And it seemed like it could have been written by Lennon, Mamas & Papas, Donovan, etc., and so I mentioned several of these artists and wove their melodies in with mine to create what has been hailed as a little masterpiece. The song played across the nation in late 1999, promoted by Kenny Loggins' cousin Paul Loggins out of Santa Monica. The feedback was fantastic, I interviewed with various DJ's across the country after the song aired--was a very cool time. And now this literal collectors item is available FOR YOU TO PURCHASE at a very reasonable price at CDBaby. Go to www.cdbaby.com/loftus3 to hear it and purchase it for only $5.00!
