Ricky Nelson – Hello Mary Lou, 1961 (Stereo-Mix)

Hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I’m so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we’d never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

You passed me by one sunny day
Flashed those big brown eyes my way
And oo I wanted you forever more
Now I’m not one that gets around
Swear my feet stuck to the ground
And though I never did meet you before

I said, hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I’m so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we’d never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

I saw your lips I heard your voice
Believe me I just had no choice
Wild horses couldn’t make me stay away
I thought about a moonlit night
My arms about good an’ tight
That’s all I had to see for me to say

Hey, hey, hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou, I’m so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou, we’d never part
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart
Yes hello Mary Lou, goodbye heart

Johnny Tillotson – Why Do I Love You So (1959)

Oooo – Oooo – Oooo – Oooo…….

My darlin’ I have often thought of things we used to do
And now I sit and wonder why you’re gone and left me blue
You said you’d never leave me, you said you’d never go

Oh my darlin’, why do I love you so?
Oh my darlin’, why do I love you so?

Oooo – Oooo – Oooo – Oooo…….

Is it because you stroked my hair when you were by my side?
Or is it because of the tears you cried when your little puppy died?
You said you’d never leave me, you said you’d never go

Oh my darlin’, why do I love you so?
Oh my darlin’, why do I love you so?

Oooo – Oooo – Oooo – Oooo…….

Louie Louie – Música

“Louie Louie” is an American rhythm and blues song written by Richard Berry in 1955 and best known for the 1963 hit version by The Kingsmen. It has become a standard in pop and rock, with hundreds of versions recorded by different artists. The song is based on the tune “El Loco Cha Cha” popularized by bandleader René Touzet and is an example of Latin influence on American popular music. “Louie Louie” tells, in simple verse–chorus form, the first-person story of a Jamaican sailor returning to the island to see his lady love.
The Kingsmen’s recording was the subject of an FBI investigation about the supposed but nonexistent obscenity of the lyrics, an investigation that ended without prosecution. Ironically, the recording notably includes the drummer yelling “Fuck!” after dropping his drumstick at the 0:54 mark.

Louie Louie, oh baby, me gotta go
I said me gotta go now
Let’s hustle on out of here
Let’s go!

I wish I could believe you – Música

The Duprees are an American musical group of doo-wop style who had a series of hit records in the early 1960s.

Duprees – I wish I could believe you

I wish I could believe you
I wish I could believe you

You say you love me, you’re mine alone
You say you want me to be your own
I wish I could believe you
But it sounds too good to be true

You say you’re sorry you broke my heart
You say that this time we’ll never part
I wish I could believe you
But it sounds too good to be true

I’ve heard you say all these things before
Then turn around and hurt me once more
Each time I put my faith and trust in you
You prove it’s such a foolish thing to do

You say you’ve changed, dear, and now you know
How much you want me and need me so
I wish I could believe you
But it sounds too good to be true

INSTRUMENTAL

You say you’ve changed, dear, and now you know
How much you want me and need me so
I wish I could believe you
But it sounds too good to be true

I wish I could believe you
I wish I could believe you

Del Shannon – Runaway (1961) HD

As I walk along, I wonder
A-what went wrong with our love
A love that was so strong

And as I still walk on, I think of
The things we’ve done together
While our hearts were young

I’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this misery

I wonder
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran away

And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway

I’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this misery

And I wonder
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran away

And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway

Return To Sender (1962) Stereo Audio – Elvis

Return to sender
Return to sender

I gave a letter to the postman
He put it his sack
Bright in early next morning
He brought my letter back

She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone

We had a quarrel, a lovers’ spat
I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back

So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D
Bright in early next morning
It came right back to me

She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such person, no such zone

This time I’m gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day
Then I’ll understand the writing on it

Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone

Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender
