Gene Pitney is probably underrated for his contributions to American music...he did many reallt good songs. I'll never forget this one, because it'll always remind me of being separated from loved ones when I was a child:
Please let me hold you and love you for always and always
"Only Love Can Break A Heart...Only Love Can Mend It Again"...
One of the great uses for whistling in a pop song...
And another classic from a pretty interesting movie of the same name..."Town Without Pity"...
How can we keep love alive
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two
What a town without pity can do
Thanks BD> I'm finding out that in musical matters, among other things, you are refreshingly wise beyond your tender years...
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Re: Gene Pitney RIP
well thank you Barry. Consider my cover blown LOL
Gene Pitney was inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, the year I graduated from High school. My senior year I was writing entertainment columns for my high school's newspaper. I decided to write about that year's inductees and I was amazed at what Gene Pitney had done in his career. He definitely deserved his induction.
Unofortunately there are so many others that deserve induction but have yet to be inducted and some of them never will because of the arrogance of the board of directors.
If there is one hall of fame that is spot on is the Country music HOF in Nashville. Not only do they induct everyone that deserves induction, they have exhibits that spotlight over genres important to Country music and the Nashville music scene in general.
