listen people, to what I say

In early 1966, my sister bought Herman’s Hermits’ new single, Listen People. She proceeded to play it night and day, driving my bother and me to beyond distraction. In fact, sooooooooooo far beyond distraction, that we decided, “Nevermore!”


This entry on the Herman’s Hermits single Listen People from 1966 has been moved from this website to my new website, Rather Rare Records ( It has been rewritten expanded and includes two videos of two versions of the song (one from 1965, one from 1966). I have also changed the piece’s title to “listen people and don’t play that same old song over and over and over again, my friend.”

Comments and arguments welcome!
