“I’m just glad Gordon managed to outlive melody and harmony,” commented long-time partner Peter Asher, from London.  “Even if our corny, innocent, sentimental music didn’t.”

    Yeah, right.

    P&G made some excellent British Invasion pop music – their connection with McCartney provided them with melodic & tuneful songs that were typical of the Beatles’ output from ’64 & ’65.

    “A World Without Love”, “Nobody I Know”, and “Woman” could easily have been Beatles’ songs, and P&G did a great job, interpreting what were essentially Beatles’ harmonies.

    And their songs’ instrumentation was tight, mid-’60s British session musician quality – like what Dusty Springfield used, and they were as good as anyone in that 2nd tier of Brit Pop.

    Lame. Plain lame. I give it a 64, Dick. You can’t dance to it.

    But you’re right, bud, It’s a whole like Dusty Springfield. Another solid rocker, hey?

    Peter and Gordon were great. They were pop artists, not rockers, and their music was well written and professionally performed. It’s easy to look back and slime them — his own children did that to J.S. Bach! — you can do that with anybody in any era.

    I always liked “Lady Godiva.”

    Get real. Peter and Gordo aren’t entertainment. Erin Andrews peephole video — now THAT’s entertainment! FGI but be careful of malware.
