KARAOKE SCENE MAGAZINE ONLINE! - Keepinitcntry performs Hurdy Gurdy Man on Karaoke Showcase - "Hurdy Gurdy Man" is a song by the Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan. It was recorded in April 1968 and released the following month as a single. The song gave its name to the album The Hurdy Gurdy Man, which was released in October of that year in the United States. The single reached number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US and number 4 on the UK Singles Chart. Donovan wrote "Hurdy Gurdy Man" while in Rishikesh in India, where he was studying Transcendental Meditation with the Beatles.

Gofer Wow... besides loving your rendition of this, I love the description you wrote! I'd known, forever, that the Beatles had spent time in India, doing the meditation thing, but never knew Donovan was there also. Thanks for all the rest of the info, also. ~Dale~
