Erinnert an Paul McCartney's "Put It There". Gefällt mir gut.

CDN: #8, 1965
USA: #61, 1965
*****
... nicht nur farbenfroh, der Text ...
*****
So ist es, Farbenlinde sollten hier wenn irgendmöglich
weghören, sie würden sich sehrwahrscheinlich furchtbar
langweilen.....:)

Ganz knappe 5.

Einfach gestrickt, aber schön gesungen und gespielt.
***
magertjes
**
Mit diesem Gedudel kam er seinem Vorbild Bob Dylan schon gefährlich nahe.
****
Noch so einer der wenigen bekannten Songs von ihm. Da liegt er wirklich ganz nah bei Bob Dylan. Das ist musikalisch kein Kompliment.
****

3,6.
****
durchaus anhörbar
****
gut
*****
Der Song gefällt mir. Schöne Melodie, einfache akustische Gitarre und ein bisschen Harmonika. Auch der Text ist cool.
