Song of the Week: The Merry-Go-Round -- Listen Listen/Missing You

The Merry-Go-Round were fronted be teen prodigy, Emitt Rhodes. The band released six solid singles on the A&M Records label before Rhodes embarked on a solo career. None of their singles is better than this two sided gem which we present to you today.

The plug side is Listen, Listen and it was written by Rhodes. It's a bit of an anomaly for The Merry-Go-Round as it is a bonafide rocker. Not their usual forte. The Flip-Side was written by songwriter and Scooby Doo theme singer, Larry Marks. Larry Marks also did duty as the producer. Missing You remains perhaps my favorite Merry-Go-Round song of all time. Rhodes's vocals are spot on. Enjoy today's double sided gem. 


  1. Fantastico. Né canzone sul loro album. Grande scoperta. Grazie.
