The Overlanders

Genre 60s, pop, rock, british, oldies

The Overlanders were a British music group active during the 1960s. Originally playing folk songs, the band found success hard to come by during the 'beat' era and so converted to a more mainstream sound. Their only major hit was a cover version of The Beatles' Michelle. It which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart in January 1966, and featured arrangements from Tony Hatch.

The band failed to follow up their success and came to an end soon after when singer Paul Arnold left to pursue a solo career. They thus remain as archetypal one-hit wonders.
