"Cherish" by The Association.

OK, back to the 60's: Keyboardist Terry Kirkman wrote this '66 romantic ballad about unrequited love in 1/2 an hour. It became a staple of his L.A. band's concert repertoire and their 2nd hit, topping the charts in both the US (3 weeks) and Canada. David Cassidy's rendition in '72 was his 1st solo hit (#9). Also covered by Nina Simone, Petula Clark, The Four Tops and the sensitive Barry Manilow. Featured in the "Pretty In Pink" soundtrack. Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Can't You Hear My Heartbeat". I always liked Herman's Hermits - regulars on "Shindig". I saw them with Peter Noone years ago at the River Fest in Ft. Madison and @ the Ia. State Fair - they STILL sounded great.
