Those were the days by Mary Hopkin

The innocent face of Welsh singer Mary Hopkin evokes another age, and may inspire the comment that was the title of her song. Those were the days -- when the idols of the day were long-haired sweet-voiced girls like Mary. Hopkin sang all through her childhood, spent near Swansea. She was a performing folksinger at age 17. Her brief biography can be found on BBC.

After performing Turn Turn Turn on a talent show called Opportunity Knocks in 1968, she became a sensation. This version of her huge hit was sung in France in 1969.

Today Mary Hopkin can be found on Facebook.
