Not a chart hit for Quincy Jones, but this 1973 recording is one of the better-known TV themes of its era.
A top-40 hit for this band in 1958 – also the local band of my Mom’s neighborhood of Woodlawn in The Bronx, New York.
A #29 hit on the Billboard charts in 1981 – but a song I dare say has aged much more gracefully…
Not a hit record, but a song I’ve always liked. A good description of the meaning of the song is over on Wikipedia. Moral of the story: don’t be a poseur.
Here’s another one of those “What Was That Song?” mysteries from the recent holiday season – and a good place to start for 2019.
I was trying to think of who did the song most of the time it was on – and I kept thinking the performer was Tom Jones. A good guess on my part, but nope – Brook Benton performed it, a man no stranger to the pop charts in the ’50s, ’60s and early ’70s.
It looks like this was released in 1966 – but this particular song wasn’t a hit record back then, but worthy of a listen.
