"Wedding Bell Blues" by The 5th Dimension

by Dick Mac

Laura Nyro was one of the best songwriters of the 1960s.

Her songs were made hits by The 5th Dimension, Barbra Streisand, and others.

Nyro rarely released a single, and recordings of her singing some of her biggest hits were hard to find until late in her career.

In this video, The 5th Dimension sing Wedding Bell Blues.

It's remarkable and sad that Nyro never achieved the household-word status of other pop songwriters of that era. She had a knack for writing songs that were idiosyncratic and sophisticated, even a little difficult, yet unmistakably hits. Not many people can do that.
