“The Carnival is Over”

TheΒ  Seekers released “The Carnival is Over” in 1965 and, needless to say, it was very popular. What continually amazes me with many bands, is how they can perform their earlier hits with great success around 50 years later … as evidenced in this 2014 video of The Seekers performing “The Carnival is Over.”

Do the math! A 20 year old in 50 years becomes a 70 year old. Judith Durham was born in 1943, which makes her 22 when this song was first released. In this video, she would be 71, but what a wonderful performance. Enjoy!

  1. Terrific. I always loved her voice and it’s as clear and pure now as it was then.
    I always associate this with my first Mother in Law as it was the only tune she ever heard me play. It was also what I played at Bro’s first wedding in 1965 instead of reciting my party piece The Dog’s Meeting, and earned me the princely sum of five bob (25p in today’s money!) I was 9!
