I am trying to find the title and artist to a song from the late 60's early 70's which I believe to be called "Bring Back the good times"

I think the first few words are "Just to live again" the chorus is something like "Why dont they bring back the good times" Any suggestions???

The first song I thought of was Bringing On Back The Good Times by the Love Affair (I think... can't youtube)

Since you went away I've been losing my sleep at night

Never thought there 'd come a day

when you'd be back to make everything right,

but how wrong could I be

'Cos now you're here with me

Bringing on back the good times,

taking away the pain.

You're bringing on back the good times

and I'm living on air,

So glad that you're there,

sweeping away the sad times,

making me laugh again

I've never been loved by anybody

that's quite like you,

So when you're telling me

of all the things you want me to do,

now you've made me see

what you mean to me

You're bringing on back ....

Van Halen, Bowie, and the Kinks all did this one:

"Where Have All The Good Times Gone"

In my life Ive never stopped to worry about a thing

Opened up and shouted out and never tried to see

Wondering if Id done wrong (uuuh uh uh uuuh hu)

Will this depression last for long

Wont you tell me

Where have all the good times gone

Where have all the good times gone

Where have all the good times gone

Once we had an easy ride and always felt the same

Time was on our side and I had everything to gain

Let it be like yesterday (uuuh uh uh uuuh hu)

Please let me have happy days

Ma and pa looked back on all the things they used to do

Didnt have no money and they always told the truth

Daddy didnt have no toys (uuuh uh uh uuuh hu)

And mummy didnt need no boys

Wont you tell me

Where have all the good times gone

Where have all the good times gone

Where have all the good times gone

Yesterday was such an easy game for you to play

But lets face it things are so much easier today

Guess you need some bringing down (uuuh uh uh uuuh hu)

Get your feet back on the ground

Wont you tell me

Where have all the good times gone

Where have all the good times gone

Where have all the good times gone

So are David Bowie and the Kinks, and Van Halen has had three different singers and I don't think either one of them was a woman. :doh:

Anyway...

Could it possibly be "Good Times" by Chic. It's a classic disco tune, circa 1976.

"Good times, these are the good times

Leave your cares behind, these are the good times

Good times, these are the good times

Our new state of mind, these are the good times

Happy days are here again

The time is right for makin' friends

Let's get together, how 'bout a quarter to ten

Come tomorrow, let's all do it again

Boys will be boys, better let them have their toys

Girls will be girls, cute pony tails and curls

Must put an end to this stress and strife

I think I want to live the sporting life

Good times, these are the good times

Leave your cares behind, these are the good times

Good times, these are the good times

Our new state of mind, these are the good times

A rumor has it that it's getting late

Time marches on, just can't wait

The clock keeps turning, why hesitate

You silly fool, you can't change your fate

Let's cug the rug, a little jive and jitterbug

We want the best, we won't settle for less

Don't be a drag, participate

Clams on the half shell and roller-skates, roller-skates

Good times, these are the good times

Leave your cares behind, these are the good times

Good times, these are the good times

Our new state of mind, these are the good times"
