"Never My Love" by The Association.

OK, more 60's: Composer brothers Don and Dick Addrisi first offered this '67 romantic ballad to The Lettermen who rejected it. L.A.'s The Association first recorded it and, by the time it was Certified Gold, it had already been covered 16 times. Certified Platinum, #2 Billboard, #1 Cashbox. BMI's song with 2nd most U.S. airplay in the 20th Century surpassed only by "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' " and followed by "Yesterday". The 5th Dimension's cover peaked at #12 in '71 and Blue Suede's at #7 in '74.

Yesterday's answer: "The Letter" by The Box Tops. Thompson's father gave him the opening line "Give me a ticket for an AEROPLANE" and he ran with it. Other Box Tops hits include "Neon Rainbow", "Soul deep" and "Cry Like A Baby".
