The hit song “I’m Into Something Good” by Herman’s Hermits, a British invasion band in the 1960s was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, who also wrote songs for many other famous singers. Originally recorded by Earl-Jean, the lead singer of the R&B vocal group The Cookies, the song became a hit in the United Kingdom when producer Mickie Most decided to cover it with Herman’s Hermits. The band was fronted by 16-year-old Peter Noone, who resembled U.S. President John F. Kennedy and had already appeared on the British TV show Coronation Street.
The upbeat song is about meeting someone new and falling in love, which perfectly reflects the era in which it was released. The piano and other instruments were played by band members, except for the person who played the piano on this track. However, the hand claps on the recording were done by Peter Noone and others in the band, which adds to the charm of the recording.
One viewer who commented on the YouTube video of the song expressed fond memories of teenage years and dreaming about finding someone to fall in love with. Others commented on how cute the band members were and how respectful the audience was then. Another commenter was surprised to learn that Carole King co-wrote the song.
The year 1964 was a time when a gallon of milk cost 95 cents, a dozen eggs cost 53 cents, and a gallon of gas was 30 cents. U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson was in office at the time, and it was a year when many classic songs were released. “I’m Into Something Good” was one of them and still resonates with fans today.
