"Honey" by Bobby Goldsboro.

OK, back to the 60's: Named by CNN in '06 "The Worst Song Of All Time", this Bobby Russell tear-jerker about a young husband who loses his wife topped the Pop, Adult Contemporary and Country charts in '68. It became the signature song for a Floridian whose career started out as a guitarist for Roy Orbison in the early 60's. Recorded in one take (!), it was #1 the week when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. Song? Artist?

Yesterday's answer: "Hold Me, Kiss Me, Thrill Me" by Mel Carter. Great romantic ballad.
