The Dave Clark Five – Glad All Over

The Dave Clark Five were the first British Invasion band that had a hit other than The Beatles. I bought the single second hand somewhere and it has a big sound to it. The drums sound huge on this. The single charted at #6 in the Billboard 100, #2 in Canada and #1 in the UK in 1964. Dave Clark and Mike Smith wrote this song.

Bruce Springsteen has mentioned that the Dave Clark Five was a big influence. The group was huge…they ended up with 24 songs in the top 100, 7 songs in the top 10, and one #1 record with “Over and Over.”

After the group broke up in 1970 Dave Clark became a media mogul and also wrote, produced, and directed.

Glad All Over

You say that you love me (say you love me)
All of the time (all of the time)
You say that you need me (say you need me)
You’ll always be mine (always be mine)
I’m feelin’ glad all over
Yes I’m-a glad all over
Baby I’m glad all over
So glad you’re mine
I’ll make you happy (make you happy)
You’ll never be blue (never be blue)
You’ll have no sorrow (have no sorrow)
Cause I’ll always be true (always be true)
And I’m feelin’ glad all over
Yes I’m-a glad all over
Baby I’m-a glad all over
So glad you’re mine
Other girls may try to take me away (take me away)
But you know, it’s by your side I will stay
I’ll stay
Our love will last now (our love will last)
Till the end of time (end of time)
Because this love now (because this love)
Is gonna be yours and mine (yours and mine)
And I’m feelin’ glad all over
Yes I’m-a glad all over
Baby I’m glad all over
So glad you’re mine
Other girls may try to take me away (take me away)
But you know, it’s by your side I will stay
I’ll stay
All of our lives now (all of our lives)
Till the end of time (end of time)
Because this love now (because this love)
Is only yours and mine (yours and mine)
And I’m feelin’ glad all over
Yes I’m-a glad all over
Baby I’m-a glad all over
So glad you’re mine
I’m so glad you’re mine now
I’m so, I’m so glad you’re mine
I’m-a so glad you’re mine now
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa

      1. I have a 28 song- Dave Clark- The Hits that came out maybe a decade ago. A lot of success in a short period of time- seems like the British Invasion bands that are remembered are the ones who stayed together and continued to have success. The Zombies being the most overlooked great band- DC5 is right up there.

      2. I think they were better than some of the others who had similar success but faded- Herman’s Hermits- who as it is always pointed out sold more records than The Beatles in 1965.

      3. The Peter Noone fascination I just don’t get… Saying that I do like “Something Good” but not much else. Those bands either refused or couldn’t evolve…still can’t believe they out sold The Beatles.

      4. you know what is kind of interesting I think- a lot of fans of a group complain when their group goes away from formula. i know a U2 fan or two who seem to want them to do The Joshua Tree over and over and over- under a different name. The Beatles kept changing- and the fan base for the most part followed along with the changes.

      5. You are right. There are some fans that don’t want a change.
        I’ve never loved ZZ Top and/or Aerosmith but with Eliminator and Permanent Vacation respectivly they just kept making the same album over and over after those. That got boring really quick…Only a few bands can get by without changing…AC/DC is one of them.

      6. Glad you mentioned Aerosmith- i had forgot about them doing this- but I can think of four bands that hit a hit formula and ran it into the ground- ZZ Top- Heart- Hall and Oates and Aerosmith.. I was never a HUGE fan of any of those groups but they were all ok before they got into that formula- then they grew tired and boring.

      7. I forgot about Hall and Oats doing that but the Man Eater formula they wore out. All four of the acts did some stuff before the formula set in that I at least liked somewhat…afterwards not much at all.

      8. I totally agree. there is nothing wrong with wanting to have hits and sell records but… I find it funny that Steven Tyler is now doing country music. or what falls under the banner of country today.

      9. My sister was friends with a fella who was a roadie- maybe i told you this before- maybe not– anyway he was on tour with Hall and Oates- they were in concert nearby and my brother and sister went to the show- beforehand went backstage to see my sisters friend- a room full of folks eating- John Oates sitting there with everyone- my brother said if you didn’t know he was John Oates- you would have figured it was just another roadie- nice guy-….then in comes Daryl Hall in his sunglasses surrounded by an entourage- too cool for the room. For some reason that was so believable to me. If it had been the other way around I’d have been shocked.

      10. No you never told me… I can see that no doubt. Oats never stands out. Is it really so hard to keep your head when you become known?
        That’s good to hear about Oats.
