Song of the night: “You Were On My Mind” by Jamie HooverPosted: November 24, 2012
Jamie Hoover is a founding member of The Spongetones, and one hell of a talented musician. “You Were On My Mind” was written by Sylvia Tyson of the legendary Canadian folk duo Ian and Sylvia. The duo recorded it in 1964, and California folk-rock group The We Five re-recorded it in 1965. Their version went to #3 on the Billboard chart that fall. Many singers and bands have covered it over the years, but I do believe Jamie owns it now.
That said, I always thought 10,000 Maniacs should have covered this one.
