“The heart was made to be broken.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Here's another sad pre-Valentine's Day love song!
- Only Love Can Break a
Heart - Gene Pitney
|"Only Love Can Break a Heart" is the title of a popular song
from 1962 (see
1962 in music) performed by the American
Gene Pitney. The song was written by
David (words) and
Burt Bacharach (music) and appears on Pitney's second album
Only Love Can Break a Heart.
Pitney had enjoyed some success as a songwriter prior to breaking through as a performer in his own right. He wrote the songs "Hello Mary Lou", "Rubber Ball", and "He's a Rebel", the latter a number-one Billboard Hot 100 hit for The Crystals in 1962. Ironically, Pitney's success as a singer was beginning at this time, and "He's a Rebel" kept "Only Love Can Break a Heart" from topping the Billboard pop chart, where it spent one week at number two., and two weeks atop the Billboard Easy Listening chart in October and November 1962. "Only Love Can Break a Heart" also reached number 16 on the Billboard R&B chart...

From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 02/06/14 - "OLD CANS .... (#1 in a Series of 15)":
He used to go to all the public functions...especially the picture theaters. And he always carried a sugar bag to collect empty bottles and cans. His name was... Albert (Tapper) Torney.
Everyone thought he was a bit eccentric and kids would tease and hassle him. Then it was discovered that he sold the empty bottles but only some of the cans.
After he died in 1998 (aged 86) his large collection of model cars made from aluminum cans was discovered.
This goes to prove..."you shouldn't judge a book by its cover" - or a sculptor by his sugar bag. Some of his collection ---- AMAZING!
WOWZERS! Thanks, Jimmy!
