      I would put that on the top of my list too. There are more juggling for attention though!

              Yes, like PJ Proby and Mary Hopkins. Still have her Postcard Album ... and I could swear some pics on it are of me. Actually, one of my Aunts saw her on the TV once and said "What's our Vicky doing up there? I could emulate her too. :whistle: :heehee:

              Another favourite person ...

                I have plenty of favourites and this is one of them.

                It's a 1955 hit recorded by dozens of people but I prefer this version



                In this country the biggest hit version was by Jimmy Young who had it in the top ten for 13 weeks and was number 7 in the top 100 for the year. Two other versions got into the top 10 in the same month, one for 11 weeks and the other for 2.

                    @Logan ... I am sure you are younger than me (I am coming up to 72 in April) but we seem to have a similar taste in music. I did go more into folk country as time passed.

                    I am trying to think or look for what I liked of PJ Proby in the mid/late 60s before I married in 1968. :scratch: Help someone. :love30:

                        @Victoria yes I'm 63 this March.
                        At first i was influenced by my 2 older brothers likes of music. The eldest must be about 71.
                        But I liked these


                        Went to see Cilla Black in Coventry in the late 70s, she was brilliant.

                              The Bobby Vee one you posted is earlier than that. It was in 1963 and was the 43rd best seller that year.
