FOR THE NOVEMBER 2016 BUG JAM, Richard Davis and Elizabeth Katz have submitted the Crispian St. Peters version for us to play!
"You Were on My Mind" is a popular song written by Sylvia Fricker in 1962. It was originally performed by Fricker and her then husband-to-be Ian Tyson as the duo Ian & Sylvia and they recorded it for their 1964 album, Northern Journey.
In 1965 the song was covered in an up-tempo version, with slightly altered lyrics and melody by the California pop quintet We Five. Their recording reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September 1965 and topped the Billboard easy listening chart for five weeks. Billboard ranked the record as the No. 4 song of 1965. The performance by We Five is noteworthy for the gradual buildup in intensity.
