I'm getting the feeling that the hippie days ('66-'69, anyway) were all lazy days of sunshine and upbeat melancholy. Hope to hear some Kinks in here (except that I now have to turn to Game of Thrones . . .)

Such great songs, thanks! I didn't hear "lazy day" but Stan played Spanky and our Gang doing it (that's the original, right?). He gave it a personal intro, closing out his show (2 nights ago). Take care, Warren Lee, RIP.
