Who likes song "Blue Velvet" by Bobby Vinton?
Is this true?
I like the song.
I remember when it was on radio ...top ten radio....on the AM dial
After a brief spell in the US Army, Bobby was signed to Epic records in 1960 as a bandleader: "A Young Man With a Big Band." Two albums and several singles were not successful however, and with Epic ready to pull the plug, Vinton found his first hit single literally sitting in a reject pile. The song was titled "Roses are Red (My Love)." It spent three weeks at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Arguably his most famous song is 1963's "Blue Velvet" that also went to No.1. 23 years later, when David Lynch named his movie Blue Velvet after this song. In 1964, Vinton had two No.1 hits, "There! I've Said It Again" and "Mr. Lonely", the latter now being the basis for Akon's hit "Lonely."
