... with THE BYRDS!  Pretty much because I dig them as we turn into Spring (or Fall).  Let's start with a rare 1965 clip of their breakthrough smash cover of "Mr. Tambourine Man."  There are screaming girls, plus go-go dancers when they hit Shivaree for "All I Really Want to Do" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better."  Next up is a rare sync of "I Knew I'd Want You." There are even more dancers when they cover Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" for Shindig! on June 23, 1965, while I'm pretty sure that's Ed Wynn introducing "Chimes of Freedom."  You might recognize the voice introducing "Bells Of Rhymney" from poolside in August 1965 and "It Won't Be Wrong" from a corral in January 1966 on Where The Action Is.  BONUS:  Want a couple in color?  Here's "Turn, Turn, Turn!" and "Mr. Spaceman." DOUBLE BONUS: A rare 1967 sync of "Eight Miles High."

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Black Panther reigns for a fifth straight weekend with 27MM on a mere 34 percent drop. It's the first movie to fivepeat since Avatar. And it crosses 600MM domestic in the process.  The only blemish in this story is that China still seem... lukewarm on movies featuring a black cast (Marvel has pulled in ~66MM there; compared to making 55MM in the UK.) Domestically, it is likely to surpass Titanic for third all-time in a couple of weekends.  Tomb Raider places with 23.5MM against a 94MM budget, so the franchise likely dies again, absent extraordinary foreign receipts.  The faith-based flick I Can Only Imagine shows with 17MM against a 7MM budget, which is much better math.  And it edges out fourth-place A Wrinkle in Time, which grossed 16.6MM on a 50 percent drop in its second weekend and is unlikely to profit on the big screen.  The debut of Love, Simon rounds out the Top Five with 11.5MM against a 17MM budget, which is not bad for the first gay teen romance from a major studio.
