Today I take a look at “Brandy (You’re Fine Girl)” by Looking Glass.

The song tells the story of a musician torn between his love for a life at sea and his love for a barmaid.

But the story of the record is that, it was the B-side of the single “Don’t It Make You Feel Good,” and a Washington, DC area disc-jockey, Harv Moore, flipped it over and played “Brandy” instead.

Quickly moving up the charts, it reached number one, and was the bands only hit.

How about that?
