Sehr brave US # 1 Ende 1959, die sich nicht gerade zum Klassiker entwickelt hat.
*****

▒ Deze tieneridool: "Francis Thomas Avallone", uit de jaren '50 had ook in Nederland een hitje te pakken met deze: "Why" !!! In april 1960 stond de plaat 4 weken lang (# 14) in de Hollandse hitlijsten !!! Persoonlijk vind ik dat hij het plaatje ontzettend slap en sloom zingt !!! En dat scheelt dan gauw de vierde ster !!! Hij had het misschien beter bij zijn trompet kunnen laten ☺???

@10-02-2018: ▒ Gecoverd later door: "Anthony Newley" ☺!!!

Nicht gerade berauschend.
****
Okay.

ja, da darfst du dich allerdings fragen, wieso du so eine köstliche Langeweile abgeliefert hast...etwa so toll wie einer jungen Dame deren nagelneuen weissen Jupe schmutzig zu machen - 2.75...damit 1960 2 Wochen auf #3 in Norwegen (total 9 Wochen notiert)...
****
guter Song
****
hier kann ich getrost eine 4 geben

Ein feiner Oldie.

Wunderschöner "Faserschmeichler" aus dem Jahr [1959]
****
Sehr ruhig.
****
Befriedigendes Lied aus dem original Soundtrack: "Eis am Stiel - 3. Teil - Liebeleien".
****
...niedliches Liebeslied - schön hat er das gesungen, der Frankie -...
****
... Why - not? ...

Ein Lullaby-Song aus den 50ern.

Schöner Song.
