Baby Boomer Fun: The Turtles & Tricia Nixon

08/09/07

Thursday is Baby Boomer Fun Day here, no real estate, so here goes...

The Turtles had a great run in American popular music. Their biggest years were probably from 1965 - 1968 when they posted a string of top singles such as, It Ain't Me Babe, You Baby, Happy Together, She'd Rather be With Me, and Elenore.

In May of 1969, they were invited, along with The Temptations, to play a masked ball at The White House hosted by Tricia Nixon. Tricia was apparently escorted that night by Barry Goldwater jr.

The video below, (1 min 56 seconds), is the 1965 single It Ain't Me Babe, from an episode of Shindig! The tune came in at #73 for that year.
