No, I do not take Zombies with my Jane Austen, so you know I’m talking about the musical group of the 60s! Well, they’ve reunified for some new songs and gigs, and the fab Dawn Eden reports on their recent DC-area concert over at the Weekly Standard.

For those who didn’t see the first time around, my Rock Songbook began with four epic posts on what may be the greatest 60s album, Odessey and Oracle , especially concentrating on the hit “Time of the Season,” but also taking in the glorious “Changes,” the ambivalent “Friends of Mine,” and then settin’ down for some Platonic analysis of why it’s hard to convey wisdom in rock-song, even for a group as great as the Zombies.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
