"Hurt So Bad" by Little Anthony and The Imperials.

OK, back to the 60's: The late great Teddy Randazzo co-wrote this '65 soulful ballad with Bobby Weinstein, Bobby Hart (as in Boyce & Hart) and Little Anthony as a follow-up to "Going Out Of My Head". A man feels intense pain when he sees his old flame. #10 Pop, #5 R&B. The Lettermen took it to #12 in '69 and Linda Ronstadt to #8 in '80. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmEBBskGizY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brCxWZP87jU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-DLwygh4HM Yesterday's answer: "The Way You Look Tonight". Call me a dinosaur but song like these deserve an Oscar as opposed to '06 "It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp" (what happened?!). From Jeff Bluml: "At the time Martin Scorsese hadn't won an Oscar. I thought it was hilarious yet sad after Three 6 Mafia got done performing "the Oscar award winning song," that John Stewart steps up to the mic and says.... "here's a strange thought, Oscars... Three 6 Mafia 1, Martin Scorsese 0. What's wrong with that picture." Me: "LOL! Don't get me started! How about Paul Anka and Neil Sedaka not being in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame???!!! (am I starting to sound like a broken record?!)" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR4FwZeSyYs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsEPyEhK48I http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9ZGKALMMuc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9ZGKALMMuc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wd-GHKRwn34
