Seekers, The - California Dreamin' Lyrics




All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey
I've been for a walk on a winter's day
If I didn't tell him I could leave today
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

Stopped in to a church I passed along the way
Oh I got down on my knees and I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold he knows I'm gonna stay
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I've been for a walk on a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm if I was in LA
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

Stopped in to a church I passed along the way
Oh I got down on my knees and I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold well he knows I'm gonna stay
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

On such a winter's day
On such a winter's day
On such a winter's day
On such a winter's day

  3. Or S

  4. MVE

    Hey, this is a Mama’s & Papa’s song 😄

  5. Red Tale

    Even economy class had decent seat spacing in the 707. I still have my Qantas Junior V Jet club booklet. Boeing 707 VH- EBP Alice Springs 20 hrs 45 minutes flying time London to Perth with four stops.

  6. Lopes Lopes

    I prefer the original is more beautiful😠

    California Nightmare! Never in my wildest dreams, that I would see California ruin itself, and all it took was a few years. Being from Bama; it saddens all of us.

    Javier Guzman

    Yes, Bama is so much better. California, 5th strongest economy in the world. Alabama last in toothbrush sales...

    greg bernstein

    Javier Guzman At least it’s illegal to Shit in Alabama! We don’t have poop squads! Gas is $2.50, and the housing isn’t that bad; nor the traffic.

    1st view in 2020?

  17. Martin Gomez Martinez

    No hay ningún latino por aquí?

  18. Pago's Place

    I actually prefer the Mama's & Papa's version better but look at those airplane seats!

  19. The Philosopher of Culture

    This version sucks. Very bad.

  20. Смакуем вместе

    Как вам повезло что вы живёте в такой стране как Америка.Я тоже мечтаю о Колифорнии

  21. SDD41

    Read the comments and you feel she sang this as a commercial for some airlines.

  22. Red Lance

    Фильм у нас в прокате «Тихая прохлада»! Боевик. Парень слушал постоянно!

  23. James Cullen

    Is that wall paper 😆😆😆😆

  24. Richard

    meals served on a tray with real glasses salt n pepper really civilized

  25. Mo Ri

    Took my first flight in 1966, took less than an hour.  With all the modern technology and computers the same flight now takes 1 hour 15 minutes.  Its like the book 1984, we keep going backwards and yet we are sold propaganda that things are getting better.

  26. Alex Pandinha

    Música de Manteiga Margarina kkkkkk

  27. Sidney Ribeiro

    The year I was born.

  28. onko nanno herman ten have

    This song is so much connected to the Mamas and the Papas, like "Yesterday" to the Beatles, or "Satisfaction" to the Rolling Stones, that whatever efford you put in your cover version , it will NEVER be better than the original one...

    Leo Notarianni

    True. ...although Roxy Music 's version of Jealous Guy was much better than the original Lennon version sorry to say

    Frederick Hashbury

    But this one did though, dare i say almost better

    onko nanno herman ten have

    @Frederick Hashbury I understand what you mean. Judith Durham is a better singer, but this song BELONGS to the Mama's and the Papa's. And the flute part is also essential for the song. There are better singers than Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney ( Steve Perry, Miklosko Matthyevic, Steve Lee, Don Dokken, Robin Gibb, David Byron) but Satifaction will always belong to the Rolling Stones and Yesterday to the Beatles, or Imagine to John Lennon. Happy New Year to you

  29. Rock N Roll

    Какие были мелодии ,красивые стихи! 1966 год...

  30. ubmuhkehcubol

    Back when planes had wallpaper.

  31. Алексей Лагутин

    Боинг707-очень красивый авиалайнер,а песня так себе!

  32. Pat Johnson

    Wasn't this song called Leaving on a Jet Plane

    leedsman54

    That was John Denver wasn't it?

  33. Иван Иванов

    А я думал, что эту песнь Бич бойс написали...

  34. richard none

    the only California dreaming going on how do a get the fuck out of this shit hole

  35. Wadel Radel

    One wonders how society could function back then without racial diversity, transgenders, and women whining non-stop?

    Mr. Anonymous

    Capitalism aided the process, modern world sucks bro

    Concrete Watershed

    @Mr. Anonymous Liberty sucks.

    Colin Baker

    Wadel Radel Absolutely. Get women beck in the kitchen, other than to drop babies on demand. How awful it was to give civil rights to people of colour. Oh and how about executing anyone who has “abnormal” sex.
    The good old days of inequality.

    Wadel Radel

    @Colin Baker , you god damn islamophob!

    Mr. Anonymous

    @Colin Baker pretty islamophobic of you, not gonna lie

  36. Wadel Radel

    not too bad although the mams version is ten times better.

  37. Horse Oak

    What a bad song. Depressing

  38. shoplifting began in ancient phoenicia

    Ha ha men in drag ....

  39. Debbie Beggs

    You can still dream

  40. Shanshung2007

    У меня в дремах Калифорня, а не этот злоебучий ссср!

  41. Oliver Marks

    Filmed at Luton Airport UK

  42. Bearded Jagger

    This feels like they found an old Delta Airlines TV commercial and put the music over it.

  43. VladislaV SKYNET

    Как же охуенно слушается.Всё,жизнь закончена...

    Александр Орлов

    покойся с миром.

  44. Chris Smith

    They'll play this at Californias funeral. We'll look back to the times when it was a place of dreams with a tear in our eye.

    Trump’s A FatAss

    It’s still a place of dreams. And beautiful. Been here 55 years and would never live anywhere else!

    Trump’s A FatAss

    Chris Smith lol the people who are leaving are the ones who can’t hack it. The rest of us are still here living large!

    Trump’s A FatAss

    Down and out in Paradise Panama living. I’m a real Californian and I’m still here.

    Trump’s A FatAss

    Down and out in Paradise Panama living. You are confused. Everyone who lived in California in the last 170 years all had roots from somewhere else.
    The state came from gold rush for god sake people cam from all over the world. They are still coming from all over the world. They have always come from all over the world. And they come here to pursue their dreams and through that process they too become
    Californians. Then either stay or move back out into the US to spread the California spirit. It’s a process that’s been going on for almost two centuries.

    Trump’s A FatAss

    Herrera the truth about the everyone is leaving myth.

    The people who leave in a bad mood are overwhelmingly racist while peolple who can’t handle it when they start having to stand in line at the grocery store next to brown people instead of other white people.

    That is a fact. I know that as a middle aged white guy from California .

    No matter what anyone tells you I promise you that is the real reason. Period.

  45. Land Rockets

    Голос красивый.

  46. Орхидея Белая

    Этот вариант тоже очень красивый .))))🤗

  47. cameraman655

    0:41 And that is Economy Class circa the mid-60s. An actual meal and look at those "comfy seats".

  48. Mark I

    No habia escuchado esta versión. Pero esta muy bien . Felices fiestas de Navidad y feliz año nuevo 2020.

  49. Les J. Suli

    Such a magical voice

  50. Suhi Huhi

    In German it begins with "Anneliese Braun"

  51. Kung Fury

    Мотив из одной очень известной песни)))

  52. Jr nu mex

    :44 would you care for some lobster and champagne sir?, "naw"

  53. John Richards

    A refreshing reinterpretation of the classic. Crystal clear vocals and overall clarity yet still conveys the song's wistful theme.

  54. BennyCFD

    Better than the original.................................

  55. TalkToTheBody

    Happy days

  56. Jessie Pinkman

    F A N TA S T i C ! ! !

  57. Ander Ander

    Remember what air travel used to be like?? ... plenty of room, good food, no hassles...

  58. Rusty Shackleford

    California is a nightmare now..sad..😢

  59. Ulviyyə Tağıyeva

    Həmisə bu mahnı seslenende ele bilirem yanımdasan eyninde yazılı koftan və sacların bir az uzun bir az havalı biləyində isə baglı bir ip var həmisə o ipin mənasını sorusmag istəmişəm.Əlındə krossvord gazetleri və ya kitab

  60. Jim Anderson

    Video doesn’t match song .

  61. Christian Boegner

    Natural Big busty

  62. Colin Smith

    Anyone else impressed by how spacious airline seats used to be?

    Darryl Guise

    @Mitchell C I flew BOAC Comet 4 Sydney to London in 1961. Wish I could remember how many stops we had.

    Mitchell C

    @Darryl Guise in theory it could have been done in 4 but the geography of it would be quite messy as to where to refuel/stop economically aswell as ocean, it was usually done in 5-6. The Comet was a beauty, an overpowered plane although earlier ones could reduce stewards to tears due to noise, price paid was worth it, Americans laughed at the idea of a jet engine. Now look!

    Darryl Guise

    @Mitchell C I know the first stop was Darwin and the last was Geneva. Think we may have stopped in Bangkok and fairly certain of Karachi, but failing memory may have missed a couple of others. Best trip was in a 707 - they served a cooked breakfast!

    Mitchell C

    @Darryl Guise thanks for sharing! What are your memories of the Comet? If any.

    Darryl Guise

    @Mitchell C Not much. We were in 1st class, I was 19 and alcohol was free.

  63. Æthelwulf Eoforlic

    bonkey dollocks - not really; but in my humble opinion when a simpleton, an ignoramus / someone who’s churlish / obtuse or without wit (yes Ptolemy Jones, in the dictionary they all amount to the same meaning - and I AM using each term correctly) is incapable of deriving the meaning of a simple comment and then indulges in a rather boorish series of counter comments, then really they deserve to be called out for the cretin they are!

  64. Martin Walsh

    This doesn’t come close to the Mamas and Papas version, which is a total classic

    Jim Anderson

    Because it’s the Pappas and Momma . Another momma is needed.

    Hey MrDj

    Bobby Womak owned it the rest just borrowed it.

    thesix107

    Yeah, totally. This version sounds like some kind of medieval sad song.

  65. Paul King

    Boring compared to the rather more sophisticate harmonies of the Mamas and the Papas.

  66. Brian Haney

    Back when flying was fun. Now peanuts and no service. Flew in 63 Miami to Nassau. Could see many Navy ships near the island. The island was quit remote then. It was a big adventure for I was 6.

  67. Tuberworks Jones

    Lovely harmony in the voices is something you don't get much of this day & age

  68. Ing. Eduardo Mata

    Is she seating in the toilet?

  69. Colerain Fan

    What a voice.

  70. Jade Martin

    Ultra Low Budget

  71. Alex Alexin

    so it's on "a winter's day", not "winner's day". hmmm.....

  72. Sdefu

    Only 4 passengers 😨

  73. William Nelson

    Its more like all the shit is brown

  74. Jeong-hun Sin

    Mamma's and Papa's version was better.

    William Perrigo

    Jeong-hun Sin — Sure, but i’m 54 and a year ago I had no idea, really, that the Seekers even existed! I find them fabulous!

    Andrew Klein

    I agree.

    Horatio Jones

    You're right. It seems like they played the song just to get their records to sell more. There was no life in that song and the video was just of a pretty girl sitting in an airplane. I don't understand why everyone is saying how great they are. The Seekers had some good songs but is was NOT one of them.

  75. Joyne Freedom

    The clip has been altered. The clip showing a windsurfer included windsurfing gear that was never available in 1966.

    bonkey dollocks

    Does it matter?

    Æthelwulf Eoforlic

    bonkey dollocks - not really; but in my humble opinion when a simpleton, an ignoramus / someone who’s churlish / obtuse or without wit (yes Ptolemy Jones, in the dictionary they all amount to the same meaning - and I AM using each term correctly) is incapable of deriving the meaning of a simple comment and then indulges in a rather boorish series of counter comments, then really they deserve to be called out for the cretin they are! Nice moniker BtW

    bonkey dollocks

    @Æthelwulf Eoforlic sorry my question was aimed at Mr Jones, not your good self dear boy. Sorry I should have made this more clear

    Æthelwulf Eoforlic

    bonkey dollocks - My mistake

    bonkey dollocks

    @Æthelwulf Eoforlic say no more, I should clarified to whom it was directed-good day to you sir

  76. ultimaetsolder

    It's okay I guess.

  77. Elsa

    How California has fallen since then.
    Each and every Democrat State eventually falls. Count on it.

    Kelly AC

    Elsa
    You’re an idiot.

    Elsa

    @Kelly AC . Year after year after year, Democrat leaders have had more than enough time to clean up the poor ghettos in their states. The governors, mayors of these states have done nothing. No changes in those neighborhoods.
    They go from bad to worse.
    So yea, count on it.

    Elsa

    @Kelly AC . California went from mansions to tent cities. So yea. Democrat states eventually become ghettos.
    I'd rather be stupid than blind and ignorant.

  78. Bill Holt

    life before airport jetways

  79. Rakesh Mohan

    I'm assuming this was from the glory days before Demonrats took over California.

  80. Nick j

    2019 look at the GD mess these crooked politicians/presidents put the U.S. in, just sinful what they have done to us. Take care of your families, friends and neighbors. Fuk the TSA.

  81. andy bosik

    The California dream has been ruined by democrats

    Mitchell C

    Democrat logic is to destroy, blame the opposition and promise free shit they won't get or atleast make them overly dependent.

  82. Kamdeboo

    Ironic.
    Back then most people were thin and seats were oversize.
    These days most people are obese yet the seats are ultra narrow.

    Richard

    just like parking spaces

    marcelo de sousa

    That is very true!

    Namjai Konthai

    It's all about $$$$.

    wzrubicon 1

    Ya gotta liberal Marxism. Free processed food for everyone

    Godfrey Daniel

    @wzrubicon 1 - What scrambled your brain?

  83. christopher stumpf

    California is fucked......get out soon. Wwg1wga

  84. Seek The Truth

    Now Kalifornia has become a nightmare. Look at San Angeles and the white flight.

  85. Will Hale

    Nah the original is way better the harmonies made this song

  86. Liwanag Bautista

    Judith thought she was over weight...ca you believe that! Gorgeous!

  87. Bayern Franken

    and the sky is gray...california dream..

  88. Steven D. Bennett

    Pretty generic for such a talented voice. Was it set on a plane because John Phillips wrote the song while flying?

  89. cafemartini

    Where would this music video have been seen in 1966?? No MTV, no internet. Was it part of a TV special??

    Glenn Steer

    Yes, 'World of the Seekers' tv special

  90. John Howerton

    Look at the leg room.

  91. jopageri1964

    Great voice. Crappy, uninspired cover.

  92. Pavement Pounder

    Cool, never knew they covered this.

  93. Count Ravendark

    I prefer the version of The Mama's & Papa's

  94. Cryonics Colony

    she should have sung this in a lower key

  95. Bob F

    Unfortunately the California dream turned into the ultimate nightmare

  96. Valnir Colaci

    Anyone seeing in 2019???

    Макс Бондарев

    Юля Овчинникова Ему пофиг.

    MrTabs4

    yes 28 dec 2019

    Alan Cogan

    No. I am listening in 2032. You ignorant Fuckbucket!

    Дмитрий Александрович

    Не, только из 2020 остались.

  97. kevin77ism

    the mud tide destroyed that State

    Javier Guzman

    How white of you to say that...
