Gene McDaniels dies at 76

You know what greatness is ? when you love a record so much you play it 50 times in a row,without a rest in between. We just dont have songs that ENERGIZE and INSPIRE us anymore ! sad, but true.

I'll confess I wasn't cool yet when Gene McDaniels was singing but like every wanna-be pre-teen I listened to the radio at night when I was supposed to be sleeping and I remember these two well and can still feel that teenage angst that makes your heart explode while your waiting and wanting your day to come.

AND, just because I saw Dee Clark pop up when I was searching for Gene McDaniels,

I wanted to include these great songs.

I still sing this song.  Still remember the words... well most of them.

Sometimes its good to be old if you can remember these great songs.

  1. Two of my most favorite songs. And boy can I remember all the words. Don't remember what I did this morning, but those words come back without trying.
