Lion-recommended music video
I enjoyed this one.

Per comments by Sailer regarding black influence in 60s music, this song (medley) is a weird one. Here, a song by an uber white guy made famous by a black group but written by white guys as part of a pseudo hip musical, Hair, almost certainly intended for white audiences imagining themselves modern.
I am so glad I have commenters to fill in the gaps missing from my posts.

This music video also says something about the sort of entertainment people liked to consume in 1972. Today, no one would want to listen to a guy like Englebert Humperdinck singing covers of other people’s songs. In fact, his old vinyl records were never even converted to CD, there are just a few greatest hits types of CDs.
