I am looking for a song, it was played on our local radio in Australia around the early 70's, sounded a bit like the Beach Boys but I've searched all their songs and it doesn't seem to be one of them. It is not Jan & Dean nor First Class (it could be another song of theirs if they had any, but it is not Beach Baby) but did have a surf sound to it, and it is not Georgie Fame's song which has similar words. All I can remember of the song was 2 chorus lines that went "Gotta go to it, Gotta get with it" or "Got to go to it, Got to get with it". The song was fairly uptempo and was played during the disco (crap) era, which gave me some relief from that brand of so called music. I have combed hit charts, one hit wonders 70's sounds and countless other charts. It was possibly between 1970 & 1974, but again I can't be certain. Is there any music gurus out there that can help me. Regards, Frustrated to the max!!!!!

One of my favorites by them, and the song with which they opened the first BB show I ever went to back around '83 or so.

Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou. This song has been stuck in my mind for 30 years, it's like a recurring nightmare. Plus you just saved me $200, I was going to but these 2 books on Australian chart listing from 1940 to 2010. But now IT'S OK.... get it. You blokes are bloody wonderful. Thankyou again.

REALLY? Four thank you's for Bruce? And what do I get for finding the title of that old Doctor Who serial for you, huh? NOTHING. You are dead to me, Geoff.
