Sam Cooke Only Sixteen She was only sixteen, only sixteen, and I loved her so  - Candy Welty
Sam Cooke Lonely Island I live on a lonely island in the heart of a city  - Candy Welty
Sam Cooke Cupid Cupid draw back your bow, And let your arrow go, Straight back to my lover's heart for me.  1961's #7 hit, "Cupid" was the follow up to Sam Cooke's gospel inspired hit, "Bring It On Home To Me". But the differences between the two songs made in the same year were very evident. "Cupid" was a very uptempo and very dancable pop tune which certainly was leading the way to much of the rest of Sam Cooke's career. Indeed, Sam Cooke's follow-up would be the 1962 smash hit saluting the dance craze started by Chubby Checker, "The Twist". Sam Cooke's song would be titled, "Twistin' The Night Away". - Peter
Sam Cooke Shake Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! "Shake" was a 1965 Top Ten hit for Sam Cooke that was released and became a hit posthumously for one of the best soul/pop artists of his generation. It was posthumous because on December 11, 1964 Sam Cooke was shot dead by a hotel manager in Los Angeles, California in still mysterious circumstances. Whatever really happened, Sam Cooke died way too young for his vocal prowess when he was only 33 years old. - Peter
Sam Cooke Bring It On Home To Me If you ever change you mind About leavin', leavin' me behind, Oh, oh, bring it to me, Bring you sweet lovin', Bring it on home to me, oh yeah.  The Top Ten 1961 hit, "Bring It On Home To Me" was Sam Cooke's fourth top twenty hit after the #1 "You Send Me", the #2 in 1960, "Chain Gang" and the #12 in 1960, "Wonderful World" (later covered well by Herman's Hermits). For "Bring It On Home To Me", Sam Cooke went back to his vocal stylings from his days as a gospel singer with the Soul Stirrers, but that didn't stop pop audiences from buying it up. Sam Cooke's next hit would find him going back to pure pop. - Peter
Sam Cooke Another Saturday Night Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody, I have some money 'cause I just got paid. "Another Saturday Night" was a Top Five pop hit for Sam Cooke from the summer of 1963. It would later get remade (and very decently) by Cat Stevens in the 1970's. - Peter
Sam Cooke You Send Me Darling you send me, I know you send me, Darling you send me, Honest you do, honest you do, honest you do, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.  "You Send Me" was Sam Cooke's only #1 song back in 1957 for six weeks. Sam Cooke had one of the most pure vocals ever known. Cooke, born in Clarksdale, Mississippi on January 22, 1931, started out as part of the gospel group, the Soul Stirrers back in 1950, but went is separate way after hearing Little Richard in 1956. From then on he became a solo pop artists with much appeal not only to black audiences but also white audiences. - Peter
Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs Ring Dang Doo  Well, you can have your gold and your diamonds too All I wan is a ring dang doo. "Ring Dang Doo" was a 1966 top twenty hit for the group (although mainly the lead singer and keyboardist, Domingo "Sam The Sham" Samudio), Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs who were an early proponent of Tex Mex music -- sounding not to unlike Los Bravos from Spain and Germany -- but Sam The Sham and his group were from Texas. Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs' song, "Ring Dang Doo" was nonsensical, as was most of their hits, including the #2 big hit, "Wooly Bully", but they were way ahead of their time in many ways. Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs' influence on Rock 'n' Roll and music in general would be felt strongly starting in the late 1980's with groups and artists such as Miami Sound Machine (and Gloria Estefan), Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam and others and Sam The Sham's influence is still felt to today. - Peter
Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs Ju Ju Hand Yoka mata huba bakwa Ju ju hand, Oooowwww! "Ju Ju Hand" was a 1967 top ten hit and yet another nonsensical hit for Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs (and their last top ten hit). But "Ju Ju Hand" would be used as a basis of several other song hits by other artists in the late 1960's and early 1970's. - Peter

Scott McKenzie San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair) If you're going to San Francisco Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair The summer of 1967 #2 hit, "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair)" was definitely a product of it's time. Sung by folk-rocker, Scott McKenzie and written and produced by "Papa" John Phillips. It was definitely about the summer of love in 1967. McKenzie, who was raised in North Carolina & Virginia, himself was originally a singer in the New York based folk group, the Journeyman, that would later revolve into The Mamas & The Papas. A year after The Mamas & The Papas went out to California (in 1965), McKenzie followed. Phillips wrote "San Francisco" for his friend McKenzie. McKenzie himself would later co-write the Beach Boys' 1988 #1 hit, "Kokomo" with Phillips, Mike Love & Terry Melcher. McKenzie continues to live in both California and Virginia. - Peter

The Secrets The Boy Next Door The boy next door has really got me dreamin'  - Candy Welty
The Seeds Pushin' Too Hard You're pushin' too hard, uh-pushin' on me The Seeds are considered by many as the first proto-punk band of the 1960's (but that can be argued a bit because of such groups as Boston's the Standells and some other American groups going back to 1964 that tried to imitate the sounds of the Beatles and came up with their own garage nearly punk sounds). But the Seeds' top ten hit of 1966, "Pushin' Too Hard" is a great example of the experimentation that existed in the mid-1960's amongst many garage bands trying to combine a harder edged 1950's sound with the psychedelic sounds just starting to emerge from California from such groups as Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix Experience and the remnants of the sounds that the Beatles left from the British Invasion. In that sense, "Pushin' Too Hard" almost seems ahead of it's time, and might have fit in well in the late 1970's punk sound and even the early New Wave sound of the early 1980's. "Pushin' Too Hard" would get a revival later in the decade of the 1960's when it was used in the soundtrack of the motion picture, "Easy Rider". - Peter
The Seekers Chilly Winds I'm goin' where those chilly winds don't blow, oh baby.  - Brian Kelly

Sheena Easton For Your Eyes Only For your eyes only, can see me through the night. The #4 1981 hit, "For Your Eyes Only" is the theme song from the James Bond movie of the same name. At the time, Sheena Easton was the youngest artists to be asked to record a James Bond theme. "For Your Eyes Only" was also the first James Bond theme to be turned into a video for MTV. - Peter

Shirley Bassey Diamonds Are Forever Diamonds are forever, They are all I need to please me, They can stimulate and tease me, They won't leave in the night, I've no fear that they might  The rest of the opening line is: "... desert me." Again, Shirley Bassey is the only artists to record more than one of the James Bond themes. Shirley Bassey would also record the themes for "Goldfinger" and "Moonraker". - Peter
Shirley Bassey Goldfinger Goldfinger, he's the man, the man with the Midas touch.  "Goldfinger" was the theme song from the James Bond movie of the same name (1965). Shirley Bassey took the tune to #8 in the charts. Shirley Bassey is the only singer to sing a James Bond theme more than once. Shirley Bassey also sang the title song for "Goldfinger" and "Moonraker". - Peter
Shirley Jones Goodnight My Someone Goodnight, my someone, Goodnight my love, Sleep tight, my someone, Sleep tight, my love, Our star is shining it's brightest light For goodnight, my  The rest of the lyrics: "... love, for goodnight." "Goodnight My Someone" is a song from Meredith Wilson (both music and lyrics)'s 1957 Broadway musical, "The Music Man". "The Music Man" was set in River City, Iowa in 1912. Originally sung by Barbara Cook playing Marian "The Librarian" Paroo before she meets Professor Harold Hill, Shirley Jones would sing the song and play Marian in the 1962 motion picture and Jones is probably better known for the role and the song. - Peter

Simon & Garfunkel My Little Town In my little town, I grew up believing God keeps His eye on us all. "My Little Town" was a special tune of coming back together for the duo, Simon & Garfunkel, back in 1975. "My Little Town" was released on both Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years" lp and Garfunkel's "Breakaway" lp and was written by Paul Simon. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel You Can Tell The World Well, you can tell the world about this. "You Can Tell The World" is from the first album, 1964's "Wednesday Morning, 3 a.m.", of the most successful American folk/pop/rock duos of all time, Simon & Garfunkel (Simon: Paul Frederic Simon {songwriter as well} born October 13, 1941 in Newark Heights, New Jersey and Garfunkel: Arthur "Art" Ira Garfunkel born November 5, 1941 in Forest Hills, Queens, New York). Simon & Garfunkel met in grade school in 1953 and first started performing together at Forest Hills High School They originally recorded as rockers, "Tom and Jerry" back in the mid-1950's and had some limited success during that decade performing on "American Bandstand" and opening for other artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis. They gradually drifted towards a more folk/pop sound by 1964, therefore the album "Wednesday Morning, 3 a.m." At the time most audiences didn't know that Simon & Garfunkel were on the edge of huge stardom, on a worldwide stage, nearly matching the Beatles' success. On the album would be an acoustic version of what was to be their very first #1 tune (in January 1966), "The Sounds Of Silence". - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Song For The Asking Here is my song for the asking. "Song For The Asking" is yet one more tune from Simon & Garfunkel's 1970 lp, "Bridge Over Troubled Water". - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Why Don't You Write Me Why don't you write me, I'm out in the jungle, I'm hungry to hear from you. "Why Don't You Write Me" is another song from Simon & Garfunkel's 1970 lp, "Bridge Over Troubled Water". - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright So long, Frank Lloyd Wright I can't believe your song is gone so soon I barely learned the tune So soon So soon.  "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright" is another song from Simon & Garfunkel's 1970 lp, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and of course Frank Lloyd Wright referred to in the title and song is the famous American architect. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Cecilia Cecilia, you're breaking my heart, You're shaking my confidence daily. "Cecilia" is a 1970 #3 hit from Simon & Garfunkel's last official studio recorded lp, "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Besides, "Cecilia" and the title tune (which went to #1 for four weeks in the spring of 1970 and secured the duos spot in keeping hit making alive into the decade of the 1970's), also included on the lp were the hits, "El Condor Pasa (If I Could)" and "The Boxer". After this the duo broke up and went solo, with Simon having the more successful career. But from time to time over the next 37 years the duo has gotten together for certain recordings and concerts, including a huge and memorable concert in Central Park back in 1982 . - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel At The Zoo Someone told me It's all happening at the zoo, I do believe it, I do believe it's true. "At The Zoo" was another top ten hit from Simon & Garfunkel's 1968 lp, "Bookends". A social commentary song from the duo. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Old Friends Old friends, Old friends Sat on their park bench Like bookends. "Old Friends" is another song from Simon & Garfunkel's 1968 lp, "Bookends". Besides the #1 song tune, "Mrs. Robinson", the lp also included the Top Ten hit, "Fakin' It" and would also have yield yet one more top ten hit. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Mrs. Robinson And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson Jesus loves you more than you will know, wo wo wo.  "Mrs. Robinson" was the most successful single/song of Simon & Garfunkel's career as a duo. "Mrs. Robinson" went to #1 on the charts for four weeks in the spring/summer of 1968. It also really summed up many feelings of the generation of young people in 1968, with it's overt political sentiments of alienation post the assassinations of JFK and MLK (and it would be a #1 tune during the time when JFK's brother, Bobby, was also assassinated in Los Angeles). "Mrs. Robinson" is also the title song of one of the most successful films of the 1960's, "The Graduate" and is supposedly written (by Paul Simon) in honor of the character played by Ann Bancroft in the movie, who tries to seduce (and actually succeeds) the young to be married character played by actor Dustin Hoffman. "Mrs. Robinson" the single version that went to #1 was featured on the duos "Bookends" lp on April 3, 1968. "Mrs. Robinson" has also been covered by several artists in the succeeding decades of the '70's, '80's, '90's and '00's, and is one of the most requested songs during Presidential election years. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Cloudy Cloudy, The sky is gray and white and cloudy. "Cloudy" is a song from Simon & Garfunkel's third lp, "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" released on October 10, 1966. "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" although released rather quickly after "Sounds Of Silence" (at least for this duo), surrendered a lot more hits (although not for "Cloudy") for this duo, including, "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "Homeward Bound", "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)" {which would also be a hit for the group Harper's Bizarre} and "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her". Simon & Garfunkel's growth as artist was also more than evident in this third lp. I myself rate this lp up there with the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's" lp and the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" (from around the same time period) as far as written content is concerned. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel April Come She Will April come she will When streams are ripe and swelled with rain. "April Come She Will" is another song from Simon & Garfunkel's 1966 sophomore lp, "Sounds Of Silence". "April Come She Will" was written by Paul Simon, yet again. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel A Most Peculiar Man He was a most peculiar man. "A Most Peculiar Man" was another song from Simon & Garfunkel's 1966 sophomore lp, "Sounds Of Silence". "A Most Peculiar Man" was written by Paul Simon. There are some that believe that the Ray Davies of the Kinks may have been influenced by this tune in writing the Kinks later in 1966 hit, "A Well-Respected Man". - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Richard Cory They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town With political connections to spread his wealth around. "Richard Cory" was another song from Simon & Garfunkel's sophomore 1966 lp, the hugely successful, "Sounds Of Silence". Although written by Paul Simon, Simon based the tune on a 1897 poem titled, "Richard Cory" by Edwin Arlington Robinson. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Blessed Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit.  "Blessed" is from Simon & Garfunkel's sophomore lp (released on January 17, 1966), "Sounds Of Silence". With more and more radio stations being asked to play the duo's (and written by Paul Simon), tune from the their fall 1964 debut lp, "Wednesday Morning 3 a.m.", The Sound Of Silence", their record company, "Columbia" started to realize that they had a potential gold mine on their hands with this duo. But "Columbia" executives insisted that Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel re-record, "The Sound Of Silence" in a more electric folk-rock way in a similiar way as another "Columbia" recording artists were, the Byrds. Simon & Garfunkel reluctanctly agreed to "Columbia"'s demands, and it was the new version that was released as a single and quickly went up to #1 (before the release of the sophomore lp) for two weeks in January 1966 -- the duo blocked the Beatles from having four straight weeks at #1 with "We Can Work It Out" (the Beatles had to settle for two non-consecutive weeks at #1 with Simon & Garfunkel stepping in for two of those weeks with "The Sound Of Silence"). Next came the making of the sophomore lp, which "Columbia" executives demanding of the duo that they take advantage of the success of the single by having the lp named similiar to the single, and that they did with "Sounds Of Silence"! "Sounds Of Silence" would yield one more top five hit, the #2 hit, "I Am A Rock" in the spring of 1966. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel The Sun Is Burning The sun is burning in the sky. "The Sun Is Burning" is yet another song from Simon & Garfunkel's 1964 debut lp, "Wednesday Morning 3 a.m." "The Sun Is Burning" was written by I. Campbell. "The Sun Is Burning" would mark a last of sorts, for future lp's, the majority of the tunes would be solely written by Paul Simon, but at this time the duos record company, "Columbia" didn't have faith in leaving Paul Simon to write the majority of tunes, but that was slowly changing as "Columbia" started to see more and more young people asking radio stations to play Paul Simon's written tune, "The Sound Of Silence". "Columbia" started to realize that Simon & Garfunkel might need to re-record that tune as less acoustic and do much less cover tunes on their sophomore lp. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel He Was My Brother He was my brother Five years older than I. "He Was My Brother" is another song from Simon & Garfunkel's debut lp, "Wednesday Morning 3 a.m." "He Was My Brother" was written by a P. Kane. Many critics consider "He Was My Brother" to be the first true anti-Vietnam War tune (as compared to earlier songs from artists such as Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger which were anti any war tunes). - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Sparrow Who will love a little Sparrow, Who's traveled far and cries for rest?  "Sparrow" is another song from Simon & Garfunkel's 1964 debut lp, "Wednesday Morning 3 a.m." An environmental tune, "Sparrow" was written by Paul Simon. - Peter
Simon & Garfunkel Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream Last night I had the strangest dream I ever dreamed before. Another one of the tunes from Simon & Garfunkel's 1964 debut lp, "Wednesday Morning, 3 a.m. -- released on October 19, 1964. As with "You Can Tell The World" (which was written by B. Gibson and B. Camp in 1961), "Last Night" was written back in 1950 by E. McCurdy. - Peter

Simply Red If You Don't Know Me By Now If You Don't Know Me By Now, you will never never never know me. Yeah I know it was done originally by Harold Melvin and the Blues, but I'll always prefer the Simply Red version. If only because I'm an 80's child! - Larcen Tyler
