In the week ending July 23, 1965, the number 29 song on 3DB's Top 40 chart was Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter by Herman's Hermits. Herman's Hermits were one of the more innocuous British invasion bands. As their former lead singer Peter Noone has often remarked in interviews, part of the reason why its works as a song is that it is sung in a thick Mancunian accent. It wouldn't sound right if it was sung in another accent.
