While they were discussing the music of yesterday and today, our host and extraordinary Malt Shop Cruise Director, Dane Butcher asked the ladies what they thought of current popular music. DeeDee, the remaining member of the original Crystals, said today’s music has no recognizable ‘signature’ melody such as the songs we all remember from the Malt Shop era. Everyone agreed.
That signature was obvious when we made our way later to the Lido Deck Pool Party where The Happenings (below) were performing—and the best seats for the show were in the hot tubs. Who wouldn’t recognize the opening notes of Go Away Little Girl, which was a hit for the group written by Carole King, and the refrain I Love You More Today Than Yesterday?
Stay tuned, there is another show tonight starring Little Anthony & The Imperials and more stories to share in the days to come.
