"California Dreamin'," followed by "I Saw Her Again," "Glad to Be Unhappy," "Twelve-Thirty," plus their lesser known songs like "Go Where You Wanna Go," No Salt on Her Tail," "Even if I Could," "Dancing Bear," "My Heart Stood Still," "Did You Ever Want to Cry," "Mansions," "Snowqueen of Texas," "Do You Wanna Dance," "String Man," "For the Love of Ivy." I agree that many of their non-singles were great and unfortunately are hardly known. It seems that only two or three hits are ever played on the oldies stations. It's a shame that they never play, if they ever did, lesser known hits like "Twelve-Thirty," Look Through My Window," or "Glad to Be Unhappy." I always hear "California," "I Saw Her Again," and occasionally "Monday, Monday," "Dedicated," "Words of Love," or "Creeque Alley." I used to dislike the second album, but I have come to appreciate it a lot. The album has many of their best songs.

Besides their radio hits, the songs that have always said "The Mamas & The Papas" to me are "My Heart Stood Still", "Straight Shooter", "Got A Feelin'", "Once Was A Time I Thought" and "Rooms".

My all-time favorite has been and probably always will be "I Call Your Name".

That's a tough one but I was lucky enough to have been born in May of 1966 when "Monday, Monday" was the Number 1 song in the country and their first album, "If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears" was also Number 1. I would have to say that my Top 10 favorite Mamas and Papas recordings are:

1. "My Heart Stood Still"

2. "California Dreamin'"

3. "Monday, Monday"

4. "Straight Shooter"

5. "Go Where You Wanna Go"

6. "I Saw Her Again"

7. "Dancing in the Street"

8. "Dedicated to the One I Love"

9. "Free Advice"

10. "Sing For Your Supper"

Thanks Nicole - they certainly had a lot of great songs to pick from! My mom LOVED them and it's kind of ironic that I was born on May 27, 1966 when "Monday, Monday" and "If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears" were both Number 1!
