at last! vinyl to mp3!

Shelley Fabares - Make Me Happy

Shelley Fabares appeared in 3 Elvis movies, and she was also in Hold On!, a 1966 film starring Herman's Hermits, from which this song appears. It's full of campy fun, much like those beach party movies starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. And it had a catchy soundtrack to boot. The perfect summer teen flick, so what if critics panned its poor plot.

Groovy! Sounds like a film I'd love, will have to seek it out. I was listening to the Ze Malibu Kids song 'Shelly Fabares' today... have you heard it?

No I haven't. Where are they from? Apparently you can order the Hold On! dvd here:
Eh but it seems a bit pricey for a dvd-r..

Hmm, a bit steep. Saw some copies on ebay for 16.99.
Ze Malibu Kids are from LA - it's the McDonald brothers from Redd Kross, plus one's wife and the other's daughter. You can watch a video here:
Check out the adorable 10-year-old drummer - I want one! :) She's the daughter of one of The Go-Go's too. If you like their sound, I can send you an mp3 of 'Shelly Fabares'.
