"See You In September"

OK, back to the 50's: This Wayne/Edwards '59 composition was written and arranged in one day at the Brill Bldg. Minor hit for The Tempos that same year. The Happenings took it to #3 in '66 and it won them a Gold Record. Considered by many to be a "counterpart" to Chad & Jeremy's "A Summer Song". Also covered by The Quotations (doo-wop), The Chiffons, Shelley Fabares and Debby Boone.

Yesterday's answer: "Delicado". I've been listening to this song literally since I was born - my Dad used to love it and would play it all the time on the old Bogen Hi-Fi. It means "delicate". I've always loved that song and it reminds me of my Dad, may he rest in peace, every time I listen to it. Amplified harpsichord played by Stan Freeman.
