THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE 1960s THAT NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD
519) The Endless — “Tomorrow’s Song”
Riveting ‘66 A-side by the Endless, an Ohio garage band formed by two brothers. Sadly, the song talks of not-so-endless love.
The Endless were formed by brothers Jack and Patrick McAfee, who were school students. In October of 1966 they recorded 5 excellent original songs . . . . All five were played over the radio and the audience called in to choose the winners (even though some of the band members disagreed with the choices!). They hooked up with Frank Keffer from Cardinal records in Columbus, who released “Prevailing Darkness” and “Tomorrow’s Song”. The 45 sides were re-recorded . . . in December of ’66.http://buckeyebeat.com/endless.html
Pat and Jack McAtee formed the Endless in 1964 in Springfield, Ohio. Pat sang and played bass, Jack played lead guitar, Chuck Moorman keyboards and Mike O’Brien drums. Mike Lyons played rhythm guitar. “Prevailing Darkness” really shows attitude in the vocal delivery. Pat’s strong vocals also balance the delicate composition and performance on the nominal a-side, “Tomorrow’s Song”. Both songs were written by the McAtee borthers.https://garagehangover.com/endless-prevailing-darkness-cardinal/
According to Garagehangover:
“When you said you were leaving, leaving, I stopped believing in you. When you said you were going, going, my heart was slowing down. When I found that you were gone, gone, I couldn’t go on without you. Then I said that I cried, cried, because you had lied to me. I’ll never stop loving you, no matter what I do. Why don’t you wait and stay? I’ll be on my feet someday. When I tried to stop you, stop you, you said that we were through forever. Somehow I’ll go on living, hoping that you’ll be forgiving to me. Girl, I’ll never stop loving you, no matter what I do. Why don’t you wait and stay? I’ll be on my feet someday.”
