This is such a beautiful song. Its so relaxing to listen to.
I was just about to look for this list. - fireinside96

This song is a classic, it's a number one for me... This is when "make love, not war"...

Who doesn't love this song? Very iconic, and catchy, too.

One of my all time top 3 groups..

One of their first #1's! The Only reason this is at #5 is because it isn't really a song to dance to, as the only upbeat part is "Every other day, every other day every other day of the week is fine yeah yeah".

This is such an awesome song. It's so sixties. I love the acapella background vocals and the lyrics. Ba dah ba the the the ba the ba the the it's stuck in my head.

Reminds me of The Other Guys. - JCHOW

3 Dedicated to the One I Love

Another One of their hits, at first I didn't like this song, but after I listened to it a little more, I fell in love with it.

4 Dream a Little Dream of Me

I'm learning how to play this on the Harmonica. This by The Mamas & The Papas is the best version (in my humble opinion). - Britgirl

This song to me, actually feels like it has a disco vibe to it. And I like me some disco.

There are a couple of different mixes of this song, but the best one is on the original mono 45 rpm.

Love the piano guided verses and the groove during the choruses in this one.

Background Vocals Are Awesome, Harmonies are Great. Only Slightly Better Than California Dreamin'.
