I recently discovered an album by Eternity's Children

Some great songs on there with awesome production and harmonies.

i did a search on this board and couldnt find any mention of them. Anyone else heard any of their stuff?

I wish more people chimed in here to expand donald's "sunshine" comp.
 
2tony p: is the album you discovered s/t? I have the 2002 re-issue & the local site lists "The Lost Sessions 1966-71".

This is donald's original post:

We are making a compilation of songs with sun or  sunshine, in the title or featureded prominently in the lyrics.
Your Breeders example fits but 2nd not. I thought maybe the lyrics feature "sun" very well - nope, it talks about moon. I'm going to ask you - what is the reason behind your Sade choice? Since it isn't what donald outlines above.

I had either forgotten or never really took in the "prominently" in the OP.  Embarrassed

But there was no mention of "sun" in the lyrics, let alone "prominently". Anyway, reading your posts, you seem musically wired to have more "sun" songs in the back of mind. Bring em on!

If you read every page - & there are only 3 - there're some repeats in your list. Otherwise, good job!

Wow. I feel like getting a "good job" from you is worthy of champagne!  Beer  (not the good stuff).
I even took about 6 songs out because I saw they were repeats. And I looked back just now and am not observant enough still to find more. I did my best!

Thanks! (Though I don't like alcohol)

Actually, I forgot that my posts dating 2012 were deleted (my request). Elmore James was in my list, as well as Waterloo Sunset & "He Dark the Sun". Sorry.

Been listening to 'Eternity's Children'. What a great slice of sunshine pop from the late 60's. Wonderful album.

Track 1 (Again) is a helluva track. If the BB's came out with this song on the Friends album, people would be praising it still.

Finally got around to getting 'Begin' by The Millenium. Let's see how I go.

Could track 1 (Prelude) be the first hip-hop track ever recorded?

It's dull to these ears. "It's You", bonus track "Blight" is worth checking. "To Claudia on Thursday" is amusing. Maybe "Anthem". I absolutely woudn't advise it to people to show what "sunshine" music is.

It could be. If it is, not a big honor.

I tried it a few months ago myself and think it's fantastic. Maybe not perfect, just because the good stuff is so good it makes the weaker songs all the worse, but I reckon "I Just Want to Be Your Friend", "5 A.M.", "It's You", and especially "There is Nothing More to Say" (which might now be one of my favourite songs) all deserve a spot on any sunshine pop collection. I've been off on a bit of a sunshine pop phase and it's led me to finding a lot of great music that I'm late to the party to (including Eternity's Children, and also A Midsummer Day's Dream by Mark Eric, which is wonderful).
The Sandy Salisbury solo album is pretty awesome too... it has a very fun cover of "With Me Tonight".

"Sunrise, Sunset". Covered by many, I'm familiar with Perry Como & Claudine Longet's. Fun fact: it's popular choice at weddings.

Did you read the whole thread before posting, john? Enya, Chemical Brothers, Misunderstood were mentioned.

You know, it's very bizarre you never posted here while you do in Rap even though it's not your thing. Care to explain? Like, everybody listens to music & there may be some songs with "sun" in title. Then why not post them here, for chrissakes? It's very easy.

Well they're here again, aren't they? Anyway, that was a different song by The Misunderstood. Here are their two "sun" songs back to back:
