SINGLE RELEASED ON THIS DAY IN 1966


"Mellow Yellow"
is a song written and recorded by Scottish singer/songwriter
Donovan. It reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was rumored
to be about smoking dried banana skins, which, at the time, was believed to
be a hallucinogenic drug, though this aspect of bananas has since been
debunked.


Donovan Philips Leitch turned 69 May 10.
