California Dreaming by the Mamas and The Papas

Listen all you people, as a fan, I'm sick of all your negative comments about Mama Cass being a big sweat hog. That's Mama Cass! MAMA CASS, you fools! It was okay for HER to be fat. She was doing a show in London in July1974 and choked to death gobbling down a big triple ham sandwich in her hotel room, so people laugh about that, which is appalling. Maybe she was hungry and just wanted one more for a nightcap. At least she didn't have anorexia like some of these skinny chicks these days. Sheesh. Yea for Mama Cass!
Still better than 95% of the crap that's out there today...
+Wanda S. The 0,01% are the pop artists themselves.
I can't believe this motherfucker had sex with his own daughter. That just blows my mind that she told Larry King that. I can't listen to this song without that coming into my mind. It literally makes me want to vomit when i think that a father could do that filthy,vile shit to a child and especially his own. 
+tejasnite Most celebs would....but not tell the world she got fucked by her own father. The thought of that makes me want to vomit. That is some filthy gutter shit. Why would she want that kind of fame? I think you are wrong about how you are looking at this.  
that fat blimp must have had her own moon orbiting around her.
WE, Me, and my roommate tommy" worked as stage hands, when big mama cow' performed here in miami' fl. She was a greedy fat shameless cow! She would order 4 dozen doughnuts! We were lucky to get one doughnut! She hid them! In her dressing room!
A guy once told me that he doesn't like fat chicks. That he likes to feel like a man in bed by being able to throw her around in different positions at will. Just made be giggle, just tells me he's weak and disproportionate himself. Nothing can make you feel more like a man than to handle any woman of any caliber. He who cannot is merely dysfunctional and ironically the opposite of powerful, because they strive to believe otherwise by choosing people of the opposite sex who are just as weak as they are.
They seem like pretty nice people. You wouldn't really expect them to be drug addict incestual rapist adulterers.
+Akeuw hell yes I remember that episode 
This song is so Vietnam. 
you watched forrest gump too?
SHE DID NOT DIE WHEN SHE CHOKED ON A FLAMIN' HAM SANDWICH; I REMEMBER WHEN IT HAPPENED, IT WAS SOME SHEIßKOPF OF A DEEJAY WHO THOUGHT HE was funny...he was reading copy concerning her death and the b----rd said that she probably choked to death on a ham sandwich. As with so many performers, it was drugs...RIP Mama Cass Elliott, this disgusting story has been following her memory like a bad stench for dam' near 40 yrs.... Man! Could she sing!
+Sir David Haddon Big mama cow' her drug was food.
Ok, you may be right.  I looked it up, and apparently, there was disagreement about her death...
"Todas as folhas são marrons/E o céu é cinza/Estive caminhando/Num dia de inverno/Eu estaria seguro e aquecido/Se estivesse em Los Angeles/Sonhando com a Califórnia".
Love it...! One of my fav evergreen groups Chef! Thanks.
Yup, they will never get old. :-)

CANCIONES DE UNA VIDA (XXX) Si alguien se había preguntado si me olvidé de ellos, la respuesta es no, porque en esta pequeña exposición de las canciones que han acompañado mi vida no sigo un orden cronológico. El cuarteto estaba formado por John Phillips, Michelle Phillips, Denny Doherty y Cass Elliot. Esta canción, que fue escrita por John y Michelle Phillips en 1963 fue lanzada como sencillo en 1965, está incluida en su álbum de debut que lleva por título “If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears”, publicado en 1966 y es uno de los primeros álbums que tuvo varias portadas diferentes. La primera fue retirada de las tiendas porque el grupo aparecía en un cuarto de baño sentados en una bañera con un inodoro en la esquina y en aquella época aquello se consideró indecente, por lo que se hizo una nueva portada tapando el inodoro con un cartel que decía que “California Dreamin” estaba incluida en el álbum. Se hicieron más portadas que no voy a explicar para no cansar con la lectura. Y sin más, os dejo con………..The Mamas & The Papas y esta canción de 1965.

Great song,, terrible lip sync/singing. Mama Cass was cool, even hippies were somewhat cool back then. They were rebellious & anti establishment but they weren't psycho like today's progressives who try to destroy everyone & everything in their path trying to make their pathetic point. Hippies grooved back then, the leftists of today destroy. The message gets lost when you're just totally fucked up..
+Stacie Blackwood I wasn't actually saying John Philips was a cool hippy.  I was talking about a genuine hippy life-style where you live by your ideals.  If John Philips abused his own daughter , and there does seem to be proof that he did, then that is seriously crossing boundaries that decent people do not cross and seriously transgressive; one of the worst things anyone can do so I would not consider the man cool; very far from it.   He was no hippy either, being quite a hard-headed businessman and also a bit of a fat-hater.  If it had been his choice, Cass Elliott would not have been in the group.  I understand, however, he later came to really like her. I will not dispute that Mama Cass and Michelle Philips took drugs but back where they lived in the 60s, pretty much everyone did.  What I do know about Mama Cass was that she was kind, laid-back, funny and empathic.  All the musicians she came across liked and respected her.  She brought Crosby, Stills and Nash and The Lovin' Spoonful together.  After The Mamas and The Papas she had her own show and all the big names of the time wanted to be on it with her. The Mamas and The Papas gave us a laid-back, summery, California sound for years  with songs that are instantly recognisable nearly half a century later and that is kind of cool.

California Dreamin  - " Mamas & The Papas "
I felt I had to make a comment that did not attract 408 replies because it was so nasty and offensive.  Wow, how we delightful humans respond to that challege.  Sadly the proportions of well-meaning to seriously nasty are more or less even. These trolls, detritivores throw a beyond nasty comment about a decent human being and let it roll and it does.
Nothing like old rock n' roll:)))
Buenisimos...y con el morbo aňadido de la historia de Amor que hubo de por medio jaja
An oft-repeated urban legend claims that Elliot choked to death on a ham sandwich.The story, which spread soon after the discovery of her body, was based on speculation in the initial media coverage. Although an autopsy had not yet been performed, police told reporters that a partially eaten sandwich found in her room might have been to blame. Despite the post-mortem examination finding that Elliot had died of a heart attack and no food was found in her windpipe,the false story that she choked on a sandwich has persisted in the decades following her death. In fact, Elliot had lost 80 pounds (36 kg) in the eight months before her death by fasting four days a week
that does not change she fasted constantly to lose weight!! she had lost and gained constantly. she did what she could to lose weight. she tried and tried. give her a break for that.
I like Mama Cass, but at least give wikipedia credit when you cut-and-paste from there.

I will have to check it out. I was looking up Sunny songs :) 
Someone mentioned Paul Simon's "Hazy Shade of Winter" the other day...which always reminds me of "California Dreaming".

Looking outside made me think of this song. Wish I was in California now!! California Dreamin - Mamas & The Papas:
+Roberta Kennedy I heard this song on an old episode of CSI Miami a few years ago. Today I heard it on a hip hop station on satellite radio!
if I could afford to live there I would be there in a second, the ocean, beach, rivers, lakes, snow, sunny, breezy, gosh everything!!! I miss Cali every day!

A  wonderful   evergreen   to  all(   not   only     Mamas  &   Papas)!
thanks,  friends   for   stopping   by  to   enjoy  the   music!
Ik ben blij dat jullie het lied van de Mama`s en de Papa`s mooi vinden. Groeten, Jan
Very nice song. I like it so much. Thanks by sharing. Good evening and greetings!
I grew up in California born and raised before this song came out and I haven't heard one comment that even comes close to figuring out what they're singing about
🌃 Buonanotte con questa bellissima canzone !! .. California dreamin' / The mamas & the papas ~ 1966 ~ ..🎵🎵.. ( usata tante volte in molti film come colonna sonora ) .
+Bruno Barbieri / 😁.. non proprio tanto , mah .. mi difendo bene ....ah ah ah ...
Good time for Californians to dream and pray for rain.....hope  the dragon of the waters release rainfall to moisten the earth, quench the first of all life forms and  replenish the reservoirs streams and rivers

Tutti in California al caldo!!!
you people talking about him having sex with his daughter, stop worrying about them and worry about urself... ppl always stick their nose in other ppls buisness... good song tho
+hiscibus They want the rest of the world to think the way they do. They think the rest of the world is wrong. Everyone has different beliefs about the situation. People express their beliefs, and it turns into a heated battle.
pedophilia is wrong, I am not going to kiss ass to some one because of their stardom, and as for not being my problem, if you want to be that selfish and self absorbed go ahead, the world is full of very selfish people who care only about themselves. oh it is not my problem. for sure it is not, that does not mean I will do nothing in the face of evil, but do what you want. oh starving children it is not my problem, I won`t do shit for you. keep up the good work.
I have probably watched this video more than any other. I'm not sure why.
In hindsight, I'm pretty sure it was because of the polka dot shirt the lead singer is wearing. I wish I had one like that.
I'm not particularly into larger woman, no judgement its my personal preferences, but from what I have seen Mama Cass was a beautiful lady in voice and looks. Definitely  would prefer her over some of the fuck ups in music today.
not because criticize the aesthetics of others are fat, the American people are fat by nature, my brother lived in the USA and told me that the beach is only flabby, fat woman, and men too, so be quiet your sweet tooth, and respect ok the singer, her unemployed or health plan if the government has you guys, give the poor die wanes for not having someone treats, its neo-liberal, retirement plan only deprived the government of you even listenin to you guys,. afff
'America', as you put it, is the most diverse nation on the planet, which means everyone from around the world loves to eat.  I know plenty 'Americans' who are more fit than any person I've seen traveling to other countries.  The US is a massive country, with lots of everything.  Now, get smart and stop generalizing.

California Dreamin' - The Mama's & The Papa's. ~1966~ ( una canzone ...un mito ! ) 👍 / Un bel video .. / Buonagiornata. ..😉
si sono poeta anche una donna sensuale e spirituale....ciaoci mi amici...
I was 10 years old in 1966; & I remember my beautiful mommy singing with mama Cass & Michelle , (California dreamin); I have lived my whole life in a ocean town ,called ( santa Cruz),California, & my brothers & me grew up on the beach & in the ocean surfing, & of course,(California dreamin), is one of my forever favorite theme songs of my life .
MaMa Cass you are and was great!
I agree. When I talk to most other viewers and tell them my opinion, an argument starts, then turns ugly. But I thought Mama Cass was adorable. I listen to this and Monday, Monday almost every day.
Jeunesse plus saine que cette racaille de banlieue.
Ow música linda... realmente Felipe um clássico da música internacional. Pena que hj, as rádios estão dando mais sucesso para as músicas sem sentido... sem nenhuma letra. Tem muita música boa antiga e que vale a pena esses jovens escutarem
On January 12th, 1998, The Mamas & The Papas were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Today begins my yearly two-month long "series" on inductions and awards. Nothing too complicated... just recognizing, reminiscing, and remembering some great artists and their fantastic music.  If it's cold, drizzly and cloudy like it is here, this song is perfect!

she was beautiful and her voice even more. Fat are are people too ... just fat. Obesity is a disease like any other and should be treated and respected by all. Viva Mama and Papas and Mama Cass
thanks for having a heart, unlike many others, but today`s obesity is about money, they put shit in our food to quickly fatten up the live stock to quickly gain weight, not just hormones, other stuff too, and yes this should be addressed.

Thank you +Jean Billheimer I love that song and my day is beginning, not sure what time it is where you are, hope you're looking forward to a lovely weekend! :-)
Saw a documentary about them this evening. Sooo good. When Cass was on the Carol Burnett show, Carol announced that Cass had recently married a Baron. Anybody remember anything about that? I don't think she ever revealed the father of her daughter Owen.
This is what I found:she was married twice, first (1963-68) to fellow Big Three and Mugwumps member Jim Hendricks and second to Baron Donald von Wiedenman (1971).
A great classic presented in lip-sync as producers dictated. I wish there was some real live footage instead of this poor substitute.
Maybe you are looking for milli-vanilli! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
Schitterend nummer. Echt nog van vroeger!
                                                                       !!!COOL !!!
just a note the the haters and people making fun of mama cass..............none of you will ever be a legend like mama cass
So true, Cass was the only one who had a successful career after the breakup with her golden voice...
Yes but I most likely won't die choking on a ham sandwich so who's the red winner here?

Mama Cass was a beautiful women and an amazing soul of a singer.  That will never change or die!  
Honestly, this is the only song I've ever heard Mama Cass Elliot sing. I've heard so many good things about her. She looked so adorable in her dresses and knee-high boots.
She actually did not choke on a sandiwich.
I agree. I read that the sandwich hadn't been touched. She was fasting, and her heart gave out. Yet everybody argues about what she died of. They treat it like religion, like they're standing up for what they think is true. Not everybody has the same beliefs, but it's nothing to argue about.

Ups! los 70's la onda del amor y paz, el movimiento Hippie, considerados como una tribu urbana que proclamaban por el amor y la paz. Estaban en contra del consumismo y mas o menos del capitalismo.
