I recently heard an obscure song from 1968 called “Fogbound” by a band called The Smoke over at the very enjoyable A Bit Like You And Me blog. (The specific post is here.) The song is typical of 1968 in that it’s influenced by The Beatles (what wasn’t in 1968?) – so much so that the song even quotes “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” as it fades out.
We’ll get to that bit of Beatles-pilfering later, but first the coincidence:
The Smoke – “Fogbound” (1968) (excerpt)
That tune is certainly turning out to be a popular one, because it was also used in another song that I know of. I mentioned it in a previous Musical coincidence some time ago, but I’ll play it here:
Chris Brown – “All My Rivals” (2006) (excerpt)
Yep. A popular tune.
Oh, and that reference to “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”? Here it is:
The Smoke – “Fogbound” (1968) (shameless excerpt)
