Barry McGuire Pop Quiz
What was the number 1 pop hit 45 years ago this September 25th--following the Beatles' "Help" and The McCoys "Hang on Sloopy"? The answer is: Barry McGuire's *one* hit "Eve of Destruction." I heard that tune on an oldies station recently and chuckled to myself that no doubt fifty years and even a hundred years from now, someone, somewhere, will be playing that song. But I'll tell you over and over again my friend, I don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.
