Cara,

I confess that I like the song as well, especially when performed by the Osborne Brothers. The song really needs their tight sound and Bobby's high tenor.

Another overdone OB tune I always liked to hear *them* do is "Ruby." It only worked with Bobby's voice but it was always a pleasure to see and hear them do it.

Bill (in Alabama),

Yes, Boudeleaux Bryant was a wonderful song writer. As I recall, he was the composer of many of the Everly Brothers great hits.
