Herman's Hermits are an English beat rock band, formed in Manchester in 1964.
Their first hit was a cover of Earl-Jean's "I'm into Something Good" (written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King), which reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart and No. 13 in the US in late 1964. They never topped the British charts again, but had two US Billboard Hot 100 No.1s with "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter" (originally sung by Tom Courtenay in a 1963 British TV play) and "I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am" (a British music hall song by Harry Champion dating from 1911, which singer Peter Noone's Irish grandfather had been in the habit of singing when Noone was young). These songs were aimed at a US fan base, with Noone exaggerating his Mancunian accent.
"Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter" debuted on the Hot 100 at number 12 - the third highest debut of the decade (after the Beatles' "Hey Jude" and "Get Back").
"I'm Henery the Eighth, I Am" (also "I'm Henery the VIII, I Am" or "I'm Henry VIII, I Am"; spelled "Henery" but pronounced "'Enery" in the Cockney style normally used to sing it) is a 1910 British music hall song by Fred Murray and R. P. Weston. It was a signature song of the music hall star Harry Champion. In 1965, it became the fastest-selling song in history to that point when it was revived by Herman's Hermits, becoming the group's second number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Let's see -- "Mrs. Brown, you've got a lovely daughter" and "I'm Henry
the Eighth, I am." Got to be Herman's Hermits.

Alan J answered:
I'm not sure who Herman was
But Peter Noone led Herman's Hermits. Parents didn't mind them as much
as the Beatles because, while the hair was longinsh, they were puppy
cute, not gritty-sexy.

David of Moon Valley responded:
That be Herman's Hermits?
The band is Herman's Hermits, lead singer is Peter Noone. They was much more successful in the US than the UK. They even had several feature films in the US, Mrs Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter, Hold On and When the Boys Meet the Girls.
Oh, I know this one: Herman's Hermits. Their songs, "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter" and "Henry the VII" were all over pop radio when I was a kid. As far as I know, no one in the group was named Herman.
George M wrote:
Marty, the band of whom you speak is Herman's Hermits - featuring Barry Whitwam, Keith Hopwood, Derek Lockenby, Karl Green and, of course, Peter Noone!
Count me in as one for Herman's Hermits!

Herman's Hermits or as John Lennon called them 'Erman's 'Ermits

Billy in Cypress responded:
Herman's Hermits is the answer today. Those songs are still in my good-memory banks after all these years. Unfortunately, CpPDJT-ID is still in my bad-memory outhouse as well and will be until I die. Once you have seen and smelled the giant fool's gold-plated, orange turd, how to you remove it from your memory?
Kevin K. in Washington, DC answered:
That was Herman's Hermits, or 'Ermin's 'Ermits in the exaggerated accent Peter Noon sang in to let everybody know they were a British Invasion band.
The songs were "Mrs. Brown, You Have a Lovely Daughter", and "I'm Henry the Eight, I Am".
Joe S wrote:
"Mrs. Brown You've Got a Loovly Dotter" and "I'm Henry The VIII, I Am." Don't even have to "research" this one, Herman's Hermits. Back in the '80s the Spirit of the Woods Music Association opened every meeting by singing Henry the VIII. IT WAS A JOKE! IT WAS A JOKE! The band sucked and so did the songs.

Janet shared the link. To which I say--OMG! Only $20 to send Lumpy one of his ugly tweets?! It's almost worth it! Instead, I'll send you the $20 as a monthly contribution to sustain your page!
(I might invest in a troll cake except I doubt that Lumpy would see it--or eat it. And even if someone at the WH did show it to him, I doubt that he would understand that it was being used to mock him. It would probably just inflate his godawful ego even more, and we can't have that,)

My name is Marc Perkel and I have decided to announce that I will not comply with the so called "Patriot Act" laws requiring me to disclose information about my customers. If I receive a national security letter I will immediately photograph it, post it online everywhere I can, and then make a video of me burning it. I will then await my arrest. If you want to put me in jail then come get me mother fucker.

"The Simpsons" is taking on Donald Trump's (R-Fabulist) first 100 days in office in a short animation released online.
The clip shows an animated Trump in bed at the White House counting up accomplishments as president, like lowering his golf handicap and increasing his Twitter following. The video also imagines the president's daughter, Ivanka, taking Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg's seat on the Supreme Court.
The video ends with Marge and Homer Simpson taking in the news on TV at home and Marge complains that she's out of the antidepressant Prozac that was supposed to last her "the whole four years."
"The Simpsons" has gotten some political predictions right in the past.
Johnny Depp surprised Disneyland park-goers Wednesday evening when he dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow aboard the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride.
Instead of the usual animatronic in Depp's likeness, visitors were treated to the actual actor reciting lines from the popular film franchise while brandishing his sword at the Anaheim, California, theme park.
This is not the first time Depp has stopped by the ride that inspired 2003's "Curse of the Black Pearl," but this is his first appearance during the "Dead Men Tell No Tales" era of his iconic captain's log.
Depp even abandoned ship to entertain guests waiting in line on the facade of the attraction.
The stunt comes just a month before "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" sails into theaters May 26.
The state of NASA's space suit supply looks bleak in a new report from the space agency's auditor. NASA is still "years away" from having a new space suit ready for future deep-space missions, the report claims, even though the agency has invested close to $200 million on space suit development since 2007.
Meanwhile, NASA seems to be running out of the space suits it does have for the astronauts on the ISS. Only a fraction of the original space suit supply for the station is fully functional right now, and NASA may risk not having enough space suits to last through the end of the ISS program, currently scheduled for 2024.
These problems, outlined by NASA's Office of Inspector General (OIG), could turn into major roadblocks for NASA as it tries to pull off its long-term human exploration plans. Right now, NASA's goal is to start building a human outpost in the space near the Moon throughout the 2020s, where astronauts can live and train for future deep-space missions. Then in the 2030s, the first Mars astronauts will leave from this outpost and make the journey to the Red Planet.
To prepare for these deep-space environments, NASA has funded three different programs geared toward developing new space suits. However, the OIG report argues that these development efforts have been slow and complicated, since NASA has lacked a clear plan up until now on exactly where it wanted people to go in space. It was only recently that NASA outlined its plans to build a station near the Moon before heading to Mars. And though NASA has poured millions into these projects over the last decade, the agency has also taken funding away from space suit development and redistributed it toward other development projects.
Meanwhile, the report argues that NASA may have misspent some of the money it has put into these development programs. The OIG report highlights the fact that from 2011 to 2016, NASA has put more than $80 million into a space suit development initiative established under the now-defunct Constellation program. That was NASA's old plan to return to the surface of the Moon that was ultimately canceled in 2010. "We question NASA's decision to continue funding a contract associated with the Constellation Program after cancellation of that program and a recommendation made by... officials in 2011 to cancel the contract," the OIG report states.

Donald Trump (R-Crooked) on Thursday reflected on his first 100 days in office with a wistful look at his life before the White House.
"I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."
Trump, who said he was accustomed to not having privacy in his "old life," expressed surprise at how little he had now. And he made clear he was still getting used to having 24-hour Secret Service protection and its accompanying constraints.
He frequently turns to outside friends and former business colleagues for advice and positive reinforcement. Senior aides say they are resigned to it.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin today told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos that he couldn't say how Donald Trump's (R-Grifter) sweeping tax overhaul plan would affect the president personally, while also declining to guarantee that middle-class families wouldn't pay more under the proposal.
"I can't make any guarantees until this thing is done and it's on the president's desk. But I can tell you, that's our number one objective in this," Mnuchin said on "Good Morning America."
The blueprint, which the White House unveiled Wednesday, calls for dramatically cutting federal taxes for businesses and simplifying rules for individuals. The plan would slash corporate taxes to 15 percent for large and small businesses, as well as consolidate categories for individual taxpayers, lowering the top bracket from nearly 40 percent to 35 percent.
But the Trump administration left key questions about the tax plan unanswered, such as how it would affect the middle class and the wealthy. Mnuchin avoided sharing further details of the plan in the interview with "GMA" this morning.
Actor and comedian Bill Cosby, who is facing a sexual assault trial, said Wednesday that he has gone completely blind. In an essay published the same day, his youngest daughter Evin Cosby defended him by saying he "loves and respects women."
The 79-year-old entertainer was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault over allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted former Temple employee Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004. Over 50 other women have made similar allegations against the comedian.
Cosby, however, pleaded not guilty and denied all such claims. His trial is scheduled for June 5 after the jury selection begins in Pittsburgh on May 22.
In Evin Cosby's essay published by the NNPA Newswire, she acknowledged that her father "had his affairs" but "worked through it and moved on." The 40-year-old defended her father by saying: "He is not abusive, violent or a rapist."
Thai prosecutors vowed Thursday to seek the first arrest warrant for the heir to the Red Bull fortune after he dodged the latest summons to hear charges over a 2012 hit-and-run in his Ferrari that left a policeman dead.
The threat comes after years of public anger over the lack of progress in a case that critics say highlights the impunity enjoyed by Thailand's wealthy and well-connected.
Worayuth Yoovidhya, whose nickname is "Boss", was 27 when he allegedly smashed his Ferrari into a police officer in the early hours of the morning, dragging the body for several hundred metres before fleeing the scene of the crash.
The scion, whose billionaire father is Thailand's fourth-richest man, has never showed up for a formal indictment, allowing some of the charges against him to expire.
After Worayuth missed the latest summons Thursday, prosecutors promised to request an arrest warrant from the Thai courts, a step which until now has never been taken despite his previous no-shows.
