Last week the Mamas & the Papas remained at the top with "California Dreamin'", which received 36 votes out of the 181 cast. And this week they will be challenged by Simon & Garfunkel, Sade and Pet Shop Boys.

Another (relatively) easy week, Marc. This week, I'm voting for The Mamas and The Papas, Pet Shop Boys (LOVE me some PSB!!) and, of course, Karen & Richard!! Have a groovy week, Marc! =)

Hey Marc -

I'm loving my She & Him CD - nice 60's sound and a great remake of Blondie's Sunday Girl. She sounds a lot like Debbie.

BTW - I made you my PASSENGER PICKUP: DEEP DISH of the week (sometimes 2).

Thanks for sharing your selections, Lance! Hopefully you're not a Bee Gees fan because I just added them to this week's post after discovering that I'd already featured that Culture Club song.

Well, I do actually like the Brothers Gibb, but not nearly as much as I like the M&P & PSB (and you KNOW how I feel about Karen & Richard)... so I guess I'll keep the vote I already put in. =)

Sean, I'm so glad you're enjoying the CD - and thanks for the DEEP DISH shout-out on your groovy blog! :)
