Sunday Video: Dancing Bear

The Mamas and The Papas released a lot of hit songs, and memorable singles. However, I happened to come across a particular single on one of their greatest hits collections that really resonated with me.

The song was Dancing Bear.

The sound is just so mythic... and the imagery is sort of weird, even for a song that is contemporaneous with the age of psychedelic rock, and I sort of appreciate that.

didn't know this song..but I guess I only know California dreaming if I'm asked for songs of them (although..I think I also know this version of dancing in the street).

I think they were much bigger in North America than they were elsewhere.
