ABC Wednesday - Round 10 - E is for ...


I first chose Evergreen as I think it's one of the most beautiful and romantic songs ever written and sung.
And from that came the "Ever..." theme for the week.
So here they are, my choices for this week - all  #1 hits.



Evergreen  - Barbara Streisand

Is the love theme from the movie "A Star is Born". It was composed and performed by Barbara Streisand with lyrics by Paul Williams.
It stood at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Easy Listening Chart in 1977.
Evergreen has also been recorded by Barbara Streisand in Spanish, French and Italian.

I love this song.

Everybody Loves Somebody - Dean Martin

Was written in 1947 by Sam Coslow, Irving Taylor and Ken Lane.
It was recorded by several artists but it was Dean Martin's recording that went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1964 and toppled the Beatles A Hard Day's Night from the top spot.
It also stood at #1 on the Easy Listening Chart.

Everybody's Somebody's Fool - Connie Francis

Written by Jack Keller and Howard Greenfield, was a hit song for Connie Francis.
It reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 on 27 June 1960.
It's a nice catchy tune. I recall my mother had a record - the old vinyl LPs - and we heard this song many times over the next few years.

  1. Those songs all make me feel nostalgic! Fortunately, I'm too young to remember the Connie Francis song from when it was new, and when I can say I'm too young for something, that makes me happy every time.
