About This Song
In April 1963 The New Christy Minstrels, a large-ensemble folk group, released Ramblin', an album which included the song Green, Green', written by band members Barry McGuire and Randy Sparks. The song ending up charting at Number 14 on the Billboard charts, the group's first Top 40 hit, and reached Number 3 on the Adult Contemporary chart. Green, Green was the only charting single from the album Ramblin', which sold over a million copies and was certified as a Gold record, in no small part due to the popularity of Green, Green.
- ↑ Since 1958, the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) has officially awarded artists and groups gold records for singles and albums which crossed thresholds in sales, adding platinum and later diamond. Currently, a record needs to sell 500,000 units to be awarded Gold, a million for Platinum, two million for Multi-Platinum, and ten million units for Diamond.
(Note: these are the lyrics from the original song, by the New Christy Minstrels, not the translation of the Japanese version, which is different.)
