A #3 hit for the Doors in early 1969. I always thought that this was a better song than “Light My Fire” but that’s just a personal opinion.
Figured this would be a perfect song for the day after the 75th anniversary of the Normandy invasion, as it was originally made famous at the start of WW2 by Vera Lynn.
Cash’s 2002 cover had some meaning to it as well – as this was the last track of the last album issued in his lifetime.
A song that didn’t do too well for Lily over here in 2006, but it was a big hit in other parts of the world around that time.
A #1 hit in the US for Billy Idol in 1987 – and the song I was listening to when I pulled into Largo High for my graduation ceremony in 1989.
A #3 hit for the 80’s era rockabilly band in early 1983 – and their biggest of the three Top 10 US hits they have had.
A #39 hit on the then-called mainstream Billboard charts sometime in 1994 – but one of those songs that seemed to get a lot of airplay.
From their 1970 album, American Beauty – which went to #30 on the album charts sometime in 1971.
