Come on and let it show (“Love Is All Around” – The Troggs)

In October of 1967, The Troggs released “Love Is All Around” in the UK. It would eventually work its way to #5 on the British single charts in late November (the single wouldn’t become a Top Ten hit in the US until May of 1968).

The song dispelled the stereotypical, garage rock “Wild Thing” image of The Troggs, who were originally called The Troglodytes. “Love Is All Around” is a well-crafted, flower-power pop ballad. With the Summer of Love over, perhaps it was time for the Autumn of Love?
