This is a great song and I have two versions that I like a lot. First we have Richie Valens who had a version that I heard first (in the 50’s). Next we have a version by Trini Lopez which I also love and perhaps maybe a little bit more than Richie Valens.
Ok your turn to vote. Which version do you like the best?
Thought I would post a few fun or comedy songs for your listening pleasure today. Sometimes you just have to smile!
One of my favorite singers fom the 60s is Bobby Rydell and I still have a ton of his 45’s. A versitle singer with a great voice. Enjoy these songs:
Here are several songs by an old favorite singer of mine. I still have many records and tapes of his and also a number of digital songs. He was a very special talent and the world is a sadder place without him. Enjoy these songs and feel free to sing along (I do).
Here is probably Harry’s best known song so I will start with it.
Now I will include probably my second favorite song by Harry Chapin.
There are so many great songs but I will end with this one I think is very special.
I do hope you enjoy this selection of songs and I may revisit his music in the future.
Listening to music in my wifes car where she has the Satelite radio and heard a song I thought I knew but it was by a different singer.
Come to find out the song “My Boy Lollipop” by Millie Small (which I have on a 45) was not the original one. It was done in the mid 50’s by (pardon me while I look it up again) Barbie Gaye. Although I love both versions I have to default to Millie Small. Which is your favorite?
Back in the 60’s we went through a time where race car / hot rod songs were popular. Even Robert Mitchum go into it with “Thunder Road” a song that I love and would never turn off. I will start off this post with that song and then who knows.
Now on to a couple more hot rod songs from that era.
