Originally a '60s folk singer, as the decade progressed Donovan cultivated his own unique eclectic sound, mixing elements of folk, pop, jazz, world music and more, often with a twinge of psychedelia. His most well-known work was suffused with altruistic political overtones, making him an iconic figure of the "flower power" counter-culture of the '60s.

Yellow is the colour of my true love's hair In the morning when we rise, In the morning when we rise, That's the time That's the time That's the time That's the time I love the best.
