Song #50

" Bad Weather "

~ The Supremes  ~

   It Should Have Been a Hit.

"Outside the Gates of Heaven" - ~Lou Christie
I like Play Back Sundays... I get to sit back and take another spin on a good song that got lost in the shuffle.  I submit that sometimes you need to take a step back, take another listen...then move on...into the New Year that is.
This Play Back Sunday song by Roy Orbison was number one on our 'first' top ten list.
By the way a new song pick is going up tomorrow night, New Years's one of mine this time.  Give it a listen and cast your vote...hit or miss.  As always your vote counts here on ISHBAH. 
A Love So Beautiful - Roy Orbison
Here's a pick from another Pittsburgh group, The Chaps. 
Their song , "They'll Never Be"
is a undiscovered gem from the Pittsburgh School of Backseat Music.  Let's go on a musical expedition together here at
It Should Have Been A Hit
and discover it... 
Song #48
"They'll Never Be" 
~The Chaps~
They'll Never Be - The Chaps
Walk with the Wind... I think this time of year it's more like bundle up against that cold wind blowing.  On this Play Back Sunday, give this Fidelitys' song a second listen.
"Walk With the Wind" - The Fidelitys
I'm sure we all remember slow dancing to Santo & Johnnys' song "Sleepwalk"...and don't try telling me you don't remember that feeling you got dancing to that song.  Now here's a Santo & Johnny song that slipped through the cracks. Give it a listen and let me know if you think...yeah, it should have been a hit.
Song #47
" Santo & Johnny"
" Tear Drop"
"Tear Drop" - Santo & Johnnny
Formed in Harlem's Cooper Junior High School in 1954, The School Boys predate the more successful group Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers. They had a regional hit with "Shirley" and on this Play Back Sunday I think it deserves another spin. 
Shirley - The School Boys
Two sets of sisters and to top that off the Ganser sisters were identical about a family affair. This edgy quartet from Queens New Yawk became... The Shangri-Las...the leaders of the pack. Here's a song of theirs that was ahead of it's time...then again it still might be. Give "Past Present & Future" a spin and see if you think "It Should Have Been a Hit" always your vote counts here...
                                 Thanks for listening -Lou
  Song #46
" Past Present & Future"
~ The Shangri-Las ~
Past Present & Future - The Shangri-Las
It's fall and we just turned the clocks back. Can be winter be far behind...brrr. It's time to cozy up, batten down the hatches, & give a second listen to some great old tunes. Here's one from Dusty Springfield that in my humble should have been a hit.
Here's our playback Sunday song
"I Wish I'd Never Loved You"  
"I Wish I'd Never Loved You" - Dusty Springfield
