Anatomy of a Song / Some Kind of Wonderful

By Gary:
After 816 Posts, and most of them done by me, I like to indulge myself now and then.  This song was written in 1967 by John Ellison and recorded originally by the Soul Brothers Six.  It just cracked the top 100 and placed at 91, but 8 years later it would make it to # 3 by Grand Funk Railroad and 19 years later it would make it to # 7 on the Adult Contemporary Chart by Huey Lewis in the News.  It’s a song I really love –
