"Moments To Remember" by The Four Lads.

OK, back to the 50's: This Canadian vocal quartet met during choir practice at St. Michael's School in Toronto (so did The Crew Cuts). First named The Otnorots (Toronto spelled backwards!), then The Jordonaires (NOT Elvis' backup group!) and finally The Four Dukes before settling on their eventual name. Their biggest hit was a Robert Allen/Al Stillman composition which peaked at #2 in '55. Covered by The Statler Brothers and by The Vogues in '69. Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)" by The Walker Brothers. Bob Gaudio's catalog is beyond spectacular. BTW, if you get the chance to see "Jersey Boys" don't miss it!
