Turtlesbattlebands#14 – The Turtles – “Elenore” – (1968)

It always seems like when bands record a song as a send-up or parody, that it goes on to become a big hit. That’s the case here as they were satirizing themselves (and “Happy Together”). They sound similar, but the beautiful lyric “You’re my pride and joy et cetera” really sets it apart.
