Song of the Day: The Rascals, “A Beautiful Morning”

Happy 80th birthday to Felix Cavaliere, keyboardist and singer for the sunshine pop group The Rascals (formerly the Young Rascals). “A Beautiful Morning” was written by Felix and singer Eddie Brigati, and was the first single issued under the name “The Rascals.” It reached #3 in the US and #1 in Canada in 1968. It was #35 on the year-end Hot 100 in the US and #15 for the year in Canada.

    1. I went to an oldies concert here a while back, and Felix Cavaliere was one of the acts. His backup band started playing “Good Lovin'” (one of the Young Rascals’ first hits) and he stopped the band and said he wanted to do “A Beautiful Morning.” Everybody loved it.


    1. One of the best. When I saw their appearances on Ed Sullivan (The Best of The Ed Sullivan Show) a while back, I realized just how much fun they had and how great their catalog of hits was.
