*Francis Ford Coppola made a movie entitled...You're A Big Boy Now...a coming of age film about an awkward young man looking for love in New York City. This band was responsible for the entire movie soundtrack, but Coppola tasked the band's leader to come up with a sentimental ballad for an important love scene. While the movie was largely ignored, the song did quite well upon its release in 1967. Name the band, the frontman of the band and extra credit if you know the song...
