The Ivy League


There are more than one artist with this name: 1) 60's British pop trio The Ivy League consisted of members John Carter, Ken Lewis (previous members of Carter-Lewis and the Southerners), and Perry Ford. All three members were session singers who possessed high-pitched singing voices, forming the group in 1964.

All three members were session singers who possessed high-pitched singing voices, forming the group in 1964. Although an initial single quickly disappeared from sight, their second single, "Funny How Love Can Be," turned out to be a surprise U.K. Top Ten hit.

Further hits followed, including "That's Why I'm Crying" and a cover of "Tossing And Turning," the latter of which hit number three on the U.K. charts. The original trio managed to only release a single full-length album, 1965's This Is the Ivy League, before both Carter and Lewis left the group a year later. With replacement members Tony Burrows and Neil Landon taking the recently departed original members' places, the Ivy League issued two more full-lengths, 1967's Sounds of the Ivy League and 1969's Tomorrow Is Another Day.

They scored another minor hit, "Willow Tree," before changing their name to The Flowerpot Men. In the '80s, fans of the group were confused by a band going by the name of The Ivy League which performed the group's hits at nightclubs, even though none of the group's earlier members were involved. During the '90s, several best-of compilations surfaced, including 1998's 43-track Major League: the Collectors' Ivy League. 2) The Ivy League is a Punk Rock band from Wilmington, NC. The band started out as an Oi! band and as time went on they became a uniqiue style of Punk Rock.

Shortly after their CD release tour in 2007 the band broke up and are supposedly re-forming. 3) The Ivy League is an Indie-Pop/Alternative Rock Band from New York, NY. The band has gained a small but avid following through friends of friends, and are quickly turning into one of the fledgling New York High School scene's bands to watch. They have released a music video and digital single, and are scheduled to release their debut, The North Star, early in 2009. Read more on Last.fm.
