Subject: RE: Origins: Mystery Song Recording, Sixties or 70s
The mystery song, from about 1:12 on the track as suggested above, goes into some interesting and clever musical bits.

I keep thinking of the band Yes, with the keyboard and the style of their music and the excellent guitar work and the harmonies used by the singers. I haven't heard any of the Yes albums for decades but they were impressively clever musicians. Although, their lyrics were a bit more in-depth than the mystery song's lyrics.

I just asked Hubby to listen to the song because he knows a lot of music and bands. Also he said the app Spotify on a mobile phone can do tune recognition. You can hold your phone close to the tune being played and it recognises similar tunes. That would rely on the tune being well enough known to be in the main tune databases of course.
