The late Scott Miller (Game Theory, The Loud Family): "Support for this song seems to have eroded since the day, but I won't budge. Trying to shake off depression by going somewhere crowded and stimulating can be a bit desperate and uncertain to help, but it's better than nothing. The give-it-a-shot enthusiasm of tarting up dubious sounding diversions with a full orchestra arrangement and one of the century's canonical lead sheets is a fine enough New Deal strategy for me." Well, he liked it enough to pick it as one of his favorite songs of 1964 (as noted in his book "Music: What Happened?"), and it's always been an odd favorite of mine. Dig those mod moves during the instrumental break!   6

Happy Birthday (a day late) Petula Clark! We will always love you for taking the world "Downtown."

Randomly remembered this exists and I can't believe it is a song.
