I happily admit to not knowing much, um, modern music, particularly all the “The” bands – The Killers, The Feeling, The Kooks (in fact, I’m so unfamiliar that I had to ring my husband just for those names!), so although I’d heard of The Zombies (I think), I had never heard any of their songs. Until today.
This Will Be Our Year, which you can find on their album, The Original Studio Recordings Vol. 1, sounds like a cross between The Monkees and The Beatles and the lyrics are appropriately first dancey:
The warmth of your love
is like the warmth of the sun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come
