Musical coincidences # 390

April 30, 2013

My friend Michael (architect of the Educating Peter series) spotted this one:

David McWilliams – “Days Of Pearly Spencer” (1967) (excerpt)

Zager & Evans – “Fred” (1969) (excerpt)

When Michael told me about the coincidence, he also asked the following question:

“Why would anyone name a song Fred?????”

I’d be asking the very same question.

Here are the full versions:

David McWilliams – “Days Of Pearly Spencer” (1967)

David McWilliams – The Days of Pearly Spencer by peter95000

Zager & Evans – “Fred” (1969)
