Sounds like he is singing over the original song rather than a cover. (Early mashup maybe?)

I believe the guitar player from Count Five was originally from Dublin.
Yeah..whatever it is I am digging it heavily!

That's right, he was the singer, Sean Byrne
Dead now.

I believe the guitar player from Count Five was originally from Dublin.
Sean Byrne (also known as John) was from Drimnagh he moved out to San Jose CA in 1965. where he met the COUNT FIVE guys nearly straight away. he wrote, sang and played rhythm guitar on Psychotic Reaction,
all within a short time of arriving in the US.

Daragh O'Halloran's book Green Beat has a chapter on Sean Byrne and THE COUNT FIVE.
also covered in the book is one of the BEAU BRUMMELS who was from Clonmel!

Forever Autumn


The original version was a Lego commercial



Vigrass and Osborne, the performers of the original jingle, added lyrics to the song and recorded it for inclusion on their 1972 album Queues. Their interpretation was also released as a single and gained moderate commercial success in Japan, selling more than 100,000 copies and becoming a top-20 hit on the country's record chart.





Jeff Wayne and Chris Amoo (from the Real Thing) recorded it




Then Jeff Wayne redid it with Justin Hayward

I have never heard it until now and I assumed it was a cover, but no, The Bluebells were the ones who did the cover

hmm.. I had a dream involving this the other night too

A portent of something?

Is this the premise for the worst/best horror story ever?
