Today’s forgotten oldie is a one-hit wonder from 1968, A band called “People” and a song called “I Love You”. And you thought I was getting all mushy. The song climbed to #14 on the hot 100, but the band couldn’t handle various members’ religious differences and broke up. People has reunited several times over the years, even releasing a couple of albums in 2006 and 2007. It’s another instance where the band had plenty of talent, but circumstances just kept getting in the way. I have always loved their song though, but it’s another forgotten oldie now… People, and “I Love You”.
