a.k.a Cass Elliot (b. 1941-d. 1974)
The Mamas and the Papas burst onto the American pop charts
in early 1966 with a 'Flower Power' anthem, "California
Dreamin". But by 1968, after a number one album and single
and countless top ten hits, it was all over. Here's a brief
biography on them.
It all started in 1961 when John Phillips, who was in a
folk band called The Journeymen, met Michelle Gilliam, an

"Pretend" or "Begin" to pray? | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song California Dreamin' performed by The Mamas & the Papas
Two reviewers above (Susan Sisler and Elane) both said that the true lyric stated "the preacher locked the door; He knows I'm gonna stay." Why would you go to a church and stay in there praying all night if you were only "pretending" to pray, as the lyrics state. I mean, it seems that from the rest of the verse, it would make more sense to say "I begin (not pretend) to pray." I just wonder if that word was changed too?
escape from the rurals | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song California Dreamin' performed by The Mamas & the Papas
High school seniors. Some condemned to mount tractors; others 'Nam; some college;few tripped to The West Coast. Lifr bit us in The rear. Remember The Dylon lyrics: ”took ev thing he could steal”. FYI, I did stop @ a christian monument in Longbeach, on my knees, cars whizzed by, I did not knw how to pray. Unprepared for The word. Outsyanding song!!!
It was more than that... | Reviewer: Hukilau------ About the song People Like Us performed by The Mamas & the Papas
So, yeah, maybe it was just "four people trying to avoid a lawsuit"
but for some of us living in the time it was a sweet song that revealed the group as four ordinary people caught up in something they didn't fully understand. Maybe I'm making too much of it. Anyway, too bad the way things turned out...
beautiful calirfornia | Reviewer: Axel pomme------ About the song California Dreamin' performed by The Mamas & the Papas
I really enjoed to read the lyrics of that wonderfull song.
I think it was hard work for the singer to create the liyrics.
But now when you look at the result you could start crying cause it´s so beautifull
Want To Make House Music? Make Your Own Chilling House Music Today! | Reviewer: cimon------ About the song Make Your Own Kind Of Music performed by The Mamas & the Papas
We have all been there at 2am in the club when they put chilled house music on, or maybe you prefer it when it is 11pm and the real banging tunes are on?
Whatever your tastes you have probably thought about making your own house music. With the internet and the amount of information that it gives us with more and more advances in technology you would think that it would be easy to find a way to make your own house music online wouldn’t you?
Well this is unfortunately not the case and when you look up to do this you are normally presented with expensive recording studio equipment that you would need or, you will have to get some desktop software and to be honest this is not cheap either!
On top of this unless you have some music production knowledge you will find it hard to even get a decent tune out there.
Well you are in luck!
There is a new software package that has been made for the complete beginner and also the pro as well. The way it works is by giving you an easy to use interface and loads of “kits” that you can use to make your music.
So the best thing is that if you want to make your own house music you can just load up the software and have an awesome sounding track out there in just 20 mins.
If you want to go more in depth the actual software package is a complete DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and you are able to do pretty much anything with it that you could do in a recording studio.
You can mix beats, even add vocals as well!
You really have to hear the quality of sounds this will produce and you can start making dance music through the link below today:
California nostalgia | Reviewer: Yasi------ About the song California Dreamin' performed by The Mamas & the Papas
I've never lived in L.A 'n California ever...But I love this song & every time I hear it singing , I've got this nostalgia feeling for a place I've never been
I guess it's the magic of music...
Words I remember... | Reviewer: Susan Sisler------ About the song California Dreamin' performed by The Mamas & the Papas
I remember singing this song over and over and over and over... The words are "You know the preacher locked the door, he knows I'm gonna stay". WHO CHANGED THEM??? Some liberal who doesn't want us to think people can pray all night in a church? Someone trying to erase God and Prayer from our society and make it look like we were never spiritual? GOD IS ALIVE AND LOVES EACH ONE OF US!
California Dreamin' | Reviewer: "Because I was there"------ About the song California Dreamin' performed by The Mamas & the Papas
The reason why the 60's were so special is because of ALL the innovation , invention & interaction (racial & foreign) ,the music style changes & the huge improvements in human relations,living standards & personal wealth & achievements.(space programme,man-on-the-moon etc) So yes , venerate the 60's & until you can get off your backside & do better then let it be an inspiration to you ! & venerate the "swinging 60's " like the rest of us !!!
Almost Right | Reviewer: Elane------ About the song California Dreamin' performed by The Mamas & the Papas
You have the lyric as
You know the Preacher likes the cold
Preacher likes the cold
I have the lyrics on an old album it should be
You know the preacher locked the door
Preacher locked the door
If you think about it - it makes a lot more sense that he locked the door because he knew the speaker was going to stay.
