World's Worst iPod: Gunhill Road "Back When My Hair Was Short"

This song only made it up to #40 on the pop charts in 1973, but it's been seared into Kitty's brain ever since.

Alas, it was the best chart position ever attained by the trio called Gunhill Road.

It's one of the first examples of pop culture talking about hippie disillusionment. At least that we know of!

I'll never forget that tune!
I went to one of those summer camps where the tradition was to compose a song about your group and sing it to "battle" all the other groups. One song would win each summer. In 1973 my group's song, written to the tune of Back When My Hair Was Short did NOT win; however, I have never forgotten the words or that tune. This is even more endearing, perhaps, because it was an orthodox Jewish camp and the song lyrics were in Hebrew. My group, the Lions (Araiyot) will long remember this song; of that I am sure!

Suggestion for sappiest song ever
I Will Always Think of You by the New Colony Six. Or even their other hit Things I'd Like to Say. Only available through You Tube, which is probably a blessing. I replayed these 2 songs over and over in 8th grade. Truly cringe worthy.
