Great song 'Five O'Clock World'. If they'd hit the scene 10 years before they did, they'd have been big stars.

Won't get to the Hall unless they buy a ticket.

"Five O'Clock World" and "The One I Love" were good songs but unfortunately there's not much separating them from about half a dozen other good bands from the same era. You can't induct everyone.

Minor correction, the song I called "The One I Love" is actually called "You're the One"

Amazingly good vocal group, but they should not get in. But if you're a sucker for good vocal groups like me, they do an absolutely breathtaking rendition of Cohen's "Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye", a haunting version of "Greenfields" that improves upon the original by the Brothers Four, a great version of "Please Mr. Sun", and a decent attempt to pander to the hippie crowd with "Lovers Of The World Unite." And I'd be remiss if I didn't also mention their cover of "See That Girl", topped only by the Righteous Brothers'.

But the Rock Hall will never acknowledge them, despite some great upbeat pop classics. The Association have a better chance, imo.
