The Hollies Perform Jennifer Eccles, 1968

[The Jennifer Chronicles] 

I’m not sure how I’ve managed to live all these years and never hear the song Jennifer Eccles by The Hollies. It reached #7 in the UK. Move the arrow to 47 seconds and have a listen. I was going to warn you that it’s one of the more annoying Jennifer songs, but then I heard Eels version of it from 2001, and it’s pretty good.
 

White chalk written on red brick
Our love told in a heart
It’s there drawn in the playground
Love kiss hate or adore

I love Jennifer Eccles
I know that she loves me
I love Jennifer Eccles
I know that she loves me

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la

I used to carry her satchels
She used to walk by my side
But when we got to her doorstep
Her dad wouldn’t let me inside

One Monday morning found out I’d made the grade
Started me thinking had she done the same

I hope Jennifer Eccles
Is going to follow me there
Our love is bound to continue
Love kiss hate or adore Singing
