Build Me Up, Buttercup

We loved performing for the Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo Day Programs this Wednesday morning! We performed a new song called ‘Build Me Up, Buttercup’ by The Foundations. While learning this new song, we learned that The Foundations were a British R&B band in the 60s who were known as ‘two-hit wonders.’ They were also the first multi-racial group to have a #1 hit in the U.K. in the 1960s, consisting of British members, West Indians, and a Sri Lankan. ‘Build Me Up, Buttercup’ was released in 1968 in the U.K. and rose to #2 on their pop charts. The song made it to #3 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. This is the set list from today’s show:

  1. Sweet Caroline

  2. When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

  3. Que Sera Sera

  4. How Much Is That Doggie In The Window

  5. Somewhere Over The Rainbow

  6. Side By Side

  7. La Bamba

  8. Skye Boat

  9. Build Me Up, Buttercup

  10. Goodnight Irene

  11. Daisy Bell
