56 Years Ago Today Medley

“The ’60s was a magical time in the music business. So much creativity and talent. I think a lot of it came from the fact that we had songs with great lyrics and melodies. I think that really influenced everybody.”
~Frankie Valli

    He’s so fine, gonna make him mine so I must be going. We began to dance, swaying to and fro, blame it on the bossa nova. True love means waiting and hoping that soon wishes we’ve made will come true. Now I love this girl, I said a Ruby is her name, listen to the rhythm of the falling rain, looking for a brand new start. Why does the sun go on shining, why do the birds go on singing, why does my heart go on beating … don’t they know it’s the end of the world! You’re the breath I take, you’re the reason I’m living, I’d be lost without you. Our day will come and we’ll have everything, no one can tell me I’m to young to know. No woman’s worth crawling on the earth, walk like a man, talk like a man, oh walk, walk, walk!! πŸ™‚

    Hope you’re enjoying March Madness as much as I’m enjoying these great songs Ray. I’ve just shared them with lots of friends from the class of ’68 at Hartford High, my brother, his wife and other great friends. Thanks for your energy and work putting this group of songs together!!

      Janie, my brackets are busted (big time) in the Men’s tourney but I’m doing very well with my picks in the Women’s brackets.
      I’m happy you’re enjoying the music and thanks for spreading the word! ❀
