bustop1966hollies#5 – The Hollies – “Bus Stop” – (1966)

“Bus stop. Wet day. She’s there. I say: ‘Please share my umbrella.'” This song about a rainy day waiting for a bus is actually a love song about a guy meeting a girl at the bus stop and, after chasing her for a few months, finally getting to date (and eventually) marry her. It hit #5 in the U.S. and the U.K. and it’s a fantastic pop song.
