"Slow Down"

OK, more 50's: This Larry Williams rhythm and blues classic was first recorded by him in '58 as the B-side to his "Dizzy Miss Lizzie". John Lennon was an avid fan of Williams and this tune was a staple of the early Beatles' stage repertoire. They released it in '64 as the B-side to "Dizzy Miss Lizzie" in the UK and as the B-side to "Matchbox" in the U.S., peaking at #25 on Billboard's Hot 100. The Young Rascals covered it in their self-titled debut album in '66 (my favorite version).

Yesterday's answer: "What A Wonderful World". A song that'll make anyone's day.​ch?v=SzJY96m3lkg​ch?v=uEBBGSgO16M​ch?v=V1bFr2SWP1I
