Dave Clark Five

I have just caught up with the Dave Clark Film that was on BBC Two on Saturday.

I did l like the group in the sixties but did not realise what other music they produced beyond Glad All Over!  Dave Clark was a a shrewd business man, and apparently is to this day, owning all his tunes and managing the group himself.  They also only ever did a 5 day week, and took time off to relax and enjoy themselves.

So here are a few videos, mainly for my benefit, and maybe some of  yours to remind me what they were like singing different numbers, not as widely known.

From the 1964 Panavision teen movie, “Get Yourself A College Girl”. State Senator Willard Waterman is one uptight dude, but a politician with his ear to the ground. In danger of losing his election he decides to go to a ski resort to see what the youth of today are all about. Music publisher Chad Everett and coed/songwriter Mary Ann Mobley are ready to show him as well.

If you have time here is a 54 minute feature of their songs
