EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘I’m Into Something Good’ – Herman’s Hermits

What was the number one song in the UK on 24th September 1964?

British band Herman’s Hermits, reached number one for 2 weeks with I’m Into Something Good.

This track was written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin and originally recorded by American band, The Cookies. For some reason, it reminds me of my childhood, I think because it was used in a TV advert during the 80s. It’s a great pop tune that gets you finger clicking. Carole King said that the influence behind this song was Brian Wilson and you can really hear the Beach Boys-vibe throughout the song compounded by Peter Noone’s vocals and the backing vocals.

Lyrics

Woke up this mornin’ feelin’ fine
There’s somethin’ special on my mind
Last night I met a new girl in the neighbourhood, whoa yeah
Somethin’ tells me I’m into something good (Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’)
She’s the kind of girl who’s not too shy
And I can tell I’m her kind of guy
She danced close to me like I hoped she would (she danced with me like I hoped she would)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into something good (Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’)
We only danced for a minute or two
But then she stuck close to me the whole night through
Can I be fallin’ in love
She’s everthing I’ve been dreamin’ of
She’s everthing I’ve been dreamin’ of
I walked her home and she held my hand
I knew it couldn’t be just a one-night stand
So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
(I asked to see her and she told me I could)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into something good (somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’)
(Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’, ahhh)
I walked her home and she held my hand
I knew it couldn’t be just a one-night stand
So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could
(I asked to see her and she told me I could)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into something good (somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into something good (somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’)
To something good, oh yeah, something good (somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’)
To something good, something good, something good
