The Lovin' Spoonful is an American pop/rock band founded by John Sebastian in the 60s, being one of the most popular groups of their native New York City. The band's name was inspired by lyrics from Mississippi John Hurt's "Coffee Blues". Most famous for the evergreen pop hit "Summer in the City", they also created songs such as "Do You Believe In Magic?", "Darling Be Home Soon", and "Daydream". Named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, they drew influence from contemporary folk and psychedelic music while also inspiring later rock bands.
