Panz: I was hoping for a comment. Thanks for the acknowledgement. as aroommate of my older brother (6yrs older) and the tyoungest brother of 2 other sibnlings, I heard all of these songs 100s of times as a child and loved them. My brother taped all the 'top 40' on reel-to-reel so I got to re-hear them all the way through the '60s.
To Be Loved
was a fairly big hit back then, but I think it holds up well even now. In fact, up until the '70s, you'd find it on all the 'oldies' juke boxes. Not sure if now juke boxes that play oldies in public, whether or not you'd find it there. However, oldies stores have it.
I recently got some Sam Cooke LPs, another of my all time faves singers of this era, whose song "A Change Is Gonna Come" a 1964 modest hit at that time, was to evolve to be one of the theme songs of the '60s Civil Rights movement.
Of couurse Cooke's known for far more. -- such as having some the most romantic ballads of that era as well as 'the' dance tune, "You Send Me" and "Twistin' the Night Away".
