Last week the Mamas & the Papas remained at the top with "California Dreamin'", which received 29 votes out of the 190 cast. And this week they will be challenged by Katrina and the Waves, Olivia Newton-John and Nat King Cole.

Wow a week of tough choices! So many good songs to pick from, there's only one I can't stand-that sugar overdose, I'm Walking on Sunshine, ugh!

I ended up going with Nat King Cole, The 5th Dimension and Carly Simon. But with the exception of Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer, such an evocative song and great performance, an hour from now I'd probably pick others.

Thanks for sharing your selections, Joel! It's always fun to hear what songs people love AND hate. :)

I agree with Joel. Well, almost. Nat and Carly are definite MUSTS in this list. But my third choice has to be The Mamas and The Papas.

Have a groovy week, Marc! Enjoy the Summer Solstice! =)
