Poor Little Fool - In Concert
Average points: 5.11 (Reviews: 35)

Die erste # 1 der USA, in den damals neuen "Hot 100" (zuvor waren es die "Top 100"). Süss und sehr nett, genauso wie Mr. Nelson selber. Erst 1961 sollte er noch einmal die Charts anführen. Ricky gehört auch zu den vielen Stars der Rock-Geschichte, die bei einem Flugzeugabsturz ums Leben kamen.
"Poor Little Fool" scheint wohl einer jener Golden-Oldies zu sein, die in Vergessenheit geraten ist. Wenn man sich den Titel einmal anhört, dann fragt man sich wieso? Er ist von zeitloser Klasse.
Heute vor 20 Jahren tödlich verunglückt. Angenehme Reminiszenz an einen der erfolgreichsten Sänger zwischen 1957 und 1964. Dann kamen die Beatles.
Prima Oldie.
Kann mich nur Voyager2 anschließen: leider ist dieser Klasse-Song aus 1958 in Vergessenheit geraten.
Frage mich auch, wieso so viele Musikgrößen abstürzen (Vorsicht, Wortspiel!) :-)

Ich mochte und mag die Musik von Eric Hilliard Nelson. Hübscher Bengel obendrein! :-)

Gefällt mir sehr gut
Ja, ganz in Ordnung. Keine Meisterleistung.
sehr gut

keine meisterleistung, wie wahr. aber: einer von insgesamt 21 top 10 hits für ricky, und somit berechtigung genug gewesen, ihn 1987 in die rock'n roll hall of fame aufzunehmen..
Mir gefällt dieser Song auch sehr.
sehr gut
..no comment..
ein herrlicher titel mit dieser typischen athmosphäre der zeit...like it
Damals wurde noch Musik geschrieben, die es auch verdient als solche genannt zu werden
Ganz nettes Liedchen.
Zeitlos wunderbar!
netter, nostalgisch wirkender Oldie von 1958, 4*...

erinnert mich etwas an "teenager in love" von der melodie her.. finds gut
....schöner Oldie aus den 50'ern, Billy Mo versuchte sich in Deutsch an diesem Song "Mary My Girl"....
gefälliger oldie....
ein sehr netter, gemütlicher Oldie, der mir ganz gut gefällt - 4+
Toller Oldie, gefällt mir und klingt unbeschwert.
oh ja...eine tolle nummer.
perfekte unterhaltung.
und auch sonst hätte ich diese zeit gerne mal erlebt...

wie traurig...wurde nelson ja nur 45 jahre alt :-(

Auch von mir die Höchstnote für diesen wunderschönen Oldie.
Cette chanson est incroyable.
schöne romantische Nummer aus Annodazumal

Sehr schöner Song von Ricky. War seine erste Nummer 1 in Amerika!
leuke track
... ganz große Klasse, ... zum dahinschmelzen ....
▒ Toffe track uit aanvang zomer 1958 door de Amerikaanse acteur, muzikant, songschrijver en zanger: "Eric Hilliard Nelson" (☼ 8 mei 1940 – † 31 december 1985) !!! Ook na bijna 60 jaar goed voor de 5 sterren ☺!!!
Sorry, aber diese Oldie-Schnulzen aus den 50ern mag ich eigentlich gar nicht.
...und noch so ein "Süssholzraspler" der die Mädels damals sicher dahinschmelzen liess - ich mag die Melodie und die schöne Stimme von Ricky Nelson...
