I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that I grew up listening to this kind of music, my mother and father were champions in Rock'N'Roll dancing back in our hometown in Greece, during the 60s and our record collection was full of originals.
Unfortunately a flood in my sister's garage has destroyed most of them (that reminds me of a Friends episode) and now I try to make my own collection.
Although this triple CD has zillions of songs (well, 54) I chose to transfer the following three:
Vicky Carr: IT MUST BE HIM - First heard that song in Moonstruck and I wanted to find it. It took me a few years, but finally I found it last year! Kept me company through a harsh winter...
Jan & Dean: SURF CITY - Any Beach Boyish sound is good to me, takes me to California and sea and sun. Loving the harmonies too!
PJ Proby: SOMEWHERE - A classic song. This version is a bit too much for me, I think I prefer the Bobby Darrin one (or even better the short segment by Keith in The Kids Are Alright!) but it still is a grandiose song.
In the next couple of days, ladies and gentlemen, I will present you with the first Who album on the list. I will try not to exaggerate with exclamation marks, although it will be tough! There, I did it again.
Watch this space...
