So it’s time once again to pick my fav song for a particular year. This time 1964.
’64 was the year of the British Invasion. Take a look at the Billboard top 100 for that year and you’ll be amazed how many Beatles tunes fill the chart. I started to get mixed up counting at around 10 or 11. The top two songs are also Beatles songs. Simply amazing.
Oh, did I already use that word? 🙂
We all know about the Beatles, so I thought I’d skip those tunes, as fabulous as they are, and focus on another one I really like. My brother had this 45 record and I remember playing it as a young boy and being entranced by the storyline.
Basically, a guy loses his gal in a car wreck and vows to be good so he can reunite with her in heaven.
I guess that was the beginning of my turn to spirituality, but I didn’t know it then.
Enjoy the tune.
