A song from then
I recall that this song was played a lot on the ship's radio station. Especially in the early morning. Wait. I could almost swear that I heard this at reveille. Or was I still dreaming.

How about "Gloria" by the Shadows of Knight. Served a dual purpose; great song and helped our marine detachment how to spell.

LOL! When we crossed the equator, our ship's Marine Detachment had to go through the initiation twice. The first time they carried and waved, while crawling, the Marine Flag. And they also thought the ceremony rites were not that difficult.
After the second time through it, they came away with a different point of view.
My favorite version of Gloria is still from Van Morrison.
The album you mention, "Gloria" Shadows of Knight circa 1966, reminds me of my attempts to have hair length like them. Denied by father. Denied by high school officials. Denied by the Navy, but still tried anyway. HA!

Those songs from the sixties and seventies were the greatest. So much diversity in groups, vocals, instrumentation, and lyrics. The vocals today, and the musical composition all sound exactly the same. The creativity is replaced with profanity,lights, and dancing on stage. And even that's exactly the same. I prefer the older music mostly. It was for our time.
Kinda glad I'm not this current generation, having to relate, (or should I say forced), to what's out there today.

There should be a special place in the rock and roll hall of fame for Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry.

Yes they should, like at the entrance. But ol' Chuck is singing his song, "Johnny B Goode", in deep stellar space. That song is one of the earth's representations on a gold disk. Voyager 1, launched September 1977. What greater honor than that. Number 7 on list.

The only reason this happened is: it was one of the few songs that both the ROCK music fans and the COUNTRY music fans could agree on!

Absolutely. It was a great "short timers" song too. I recall another song we all liked was "Homeward Bound" by Simon and Garfunkel. I guess those were not only good songs but also homesick songs.
Songs that said, to a lot of us that, we wanna go home now.

Or how about the dark songs by the Animals. House of the Rising Sun, We gotta get out of this Place and my favorite Sky Pilot http://youtu.be/lroU7apzma8

Or my most unfavorite song, the William Tell Overture. I was on the Ranger (as in Lone Ranger) and every time we would break away from an unrep the bridge would play the song

Two Wespac cruises each about six months and unreps every three days. I hate that song.

LOL! Who in the heck ordered that song for unreps! Can't remember our unrep songs but at the end of my shift, after chow. I'd be in my bunk with the curtain drawn and with my headphones on, listening to Neil Young "After the Gold Rush". Also, Rod Stewart "Every Picture Tells A Story". And finally, Moody Blues.
Did I remember to clean out the empty soda cans, cookie crumbs and wrappers, and potato chip bags from my bunk on my last day? Not even sure what I left in my locker. Um, my excuse is that I had a Sea Knight to catch on the flight deck? Yeah, that's it! Smile
Oh I forgot to mention, the Youtube version is great! That should have been your battle song on speakers during flight ops in the Gulf of Tonkin!

RE: A song from then
I remember someone once saying that you know you're high class if you hear the William Tell Overture and you DON'T think of The Lone Ranger. Guess where that puts me? I expect to hear "Hi, yo, Silver. Away!" at the end of it.

The breakaway song for the USS Butte (AE-27) was The Lonely Bull by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.

Wait! I remember our break away song now!. Umm. No wait. That wasn't it. Never mind. But here it is anyway. Smile
