“...Lost in your heart, lost in your eyes
- Peter Winstanley
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme repeats on this day each year:
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzyEd2soQkk - Since I Don't Have You - The Skyliners, 1959
|"Since I Don't Have You" is a song by the doo-wop group The Skyliners. Released in 1958, the single reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also the top five of the R&B chart. The song, highlighted by a powerful vocal by lead singer Jimmy Beaumont, and a falsetto on the final chorus by Janet Vogel, is considered by oldies fans to be one of the best "heartbreak" ballads ever recorded, and a classic of pre-Beatles rock and roll, and is still frequently played on the radio. The song was featured in the films American Graffiti, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Lethal Weapon 2, and Mischief.|
