Herman's Hermits - I'm Into Something Good 1964

"I'm into Something Good" is a song composed by Gerry Goffin and Carole King and made famous by Herman's Hermits. The song was originally recorded by Cookies member Earl-Jean McCrea in 1964 and reached number 38 on the US pop singles chart. Soon thereafter, Herman's Hermits remade it as their debut single, reaching number one in the UK Singles Chart on September 14, 1964, and staying there for two weeks.[1] The song peaked at number 13 in the US later that year. Arranged by Hermit's guitarist Derek Leckenby, the song featured an uptempo rendition.

Herman's Hermits' release at the height of the British Invasion came while Brill Building songwriters, Goffin and King in this case, found themselves in danger of obsolescence, as most of the British groups wrote their own material. The song proved there was still a great deal of life in the song machine. The song has since been featured in films such as The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! and The Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue.

The song was featured in the 1988 film, The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!. From its inclusion in the soundtrack, a solo version by Herman's Hermits frontman Peter Noone climbed the adult contemporary chart that year.

Brian Wilson covered the song, which features Carole King, and it is included in the Best Buy edition of his 2008 album, That Lucky Old Sun.

The Bird and the Bee covered the song and released it as a single in March of 2010. Their version was also included on the soundtrack for the film, Valentine's Day.

On television, the sitcom "The Partridge Family" featured a cover version (lead vocal by David Cassidy) recorded in 1973 that was seen twice during the fourth season. The song (Produced by Wes Farrell) was never officially released on either vinyl or CD and remains one of the holy grails of unreleased Partridge Family music.

Also memorable is the version recorded by The Langley Schools Music Project in 1976. This cover is also used for an recent McDonalds commercial aired in 2010 at Australia.
