It's almost exactly sixty years since this song was so popular!
A young Scrobs was heading west to a new school, already homesick, and this song kept coming on the wireless about now...
I found myself whistling the tune the other day, and didn't put two and two together for a while so I suppose it's the combination of a little more daylight, daffodils, fresher air and the possibility of all this covid stuff nearing its end, which reminds me of back then!
I didn't know that Bobby Darin was only thirty-seven when he died; he was a fabulous singer, and seeing his notes, a superb instrumentalist as well! One of his backing band was Roger McGuinn, who founded The Byrds, who are another band I doted on in later years!
