Herman’s Hermits were an English rock band, formed in Manchester in 1963 as Herman & The Hermits. The group’s management and producer, Mickie Most (who controlled the band’s output), emphasized a simple, non-threatening and clean-cut image, although the band originally played R&B numbers. This helped Herman’s Hermits become hugely successful in the mid-1960s.

Their first hit was “I’m Into Something Good”, which reached No. 1 in the UK and No. 13 in the US in 1964. They never topped the British charts again, but had two US No. 1’s with “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and “I’m Henry the Eighth, I Am”.

My favourite song is “No Milk Today” :). It says the story of a boy who broke up with his girlfriend. So, he wrote a note (“No milk today”) to the milkman, telling him not to leave any more bottles at his door, because he will have no one to drink with 🙁

This song was extensively used in a 2009 commercial campaign for the Norwegian milk company Tine. It was also used for a commercial of the Dutch milk company Coberco in the ’90s. 🙂
