"The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)" by The Walker Brothers.

OK, back to the 60's (R.I.P John Walker 5/7/11): Frankie Valli first recorded this Bob Gaudio/Bob Crewe composition in '66 for his first solo album. It didn't chart but The Walker Brothers' "wall of sound" version from later that same year topped the UK charts and peaked at #13 in the U.S. Also covered by Cher, Neil Diamond, The Ides Of March, Jay and The Americans and The Lettermen.

Yesterday's answer: "26 Miles (Santa Catalina)" by The Four Preps. Just saw it in the distance while visiting Gina a few weeks ago.
