The intended lead singer, Rudy Lewis, died the day before the recording session. Rather than cancel the session, Johnny Moore was drafted in to provide the lead, which must have made the whole occasion rather poignant...

1964 was the year that Canadian Teen Idol Terry Black made his debut.  He never became a big star in America, but his success in Canada got him noticed by Dick Clark, and he made his American TV debut on American Bandstand where he performed the song Unless You Care, and it's B-Side Can't We Go Somewhere.  It would be his only chart appearance in the US Hot 100

At the 1965 Grammy Awards, (New Zealand born) Canadian singer Gale Garnett won best folk recording for her popular 1964 hit We'll Sing in the Sunshine.  This song is often regarded as a one hit wonder, but was it really?

First one sounds a bit 'formula', but the second one's pretty good - her biggest hit, if Wiki informs me right!

No release in Britain for her, I'm afraid...

Always had a bit of mixed feelings with this lot, but mostly with the leader! If there was a buck to be made, by hell, he made sure he made it!

(If you see DC's name in the writing credits of any song, ignore it! He had nothing to do with the composition, he made sure he got his cut by getting his name on there! A guy called Ron Ryan wrote this and sold the rights to Clark for, presumably, a pittance!)

That said, terrific production - with more compression and echo than was normally used in 1964!

"You Really Got Me" is a 1964 song written by Ray Davies and performed by The Kinks. The song, originally performed in a more blues-oriented style, was inspired by artists such as Lead Belly and Big Bill Broonzy. Two versions of the song were recorded, with the second performance being used for the final single. Although it was rumoured that future Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page had performed the song's guitar solo, the myth has since been proven false.

Due to its evergreen popularity, Rolling Stone ranked the song among the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, at #447, in 2004.

"Have I the Right?" was the début single and biggest hit of British band The Honeycombs in 1964. It was composed by Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, who had made contact with The Honeycombs, a London-based group, then playing under the name of The Sheratons.

It was released in June 1964 on the Pye record label (Pye 7N 15664). Louis Benjamin (1922–1994), Pye’s later chairman, rechristened the group The Honeycombs, a pun on the drummer’s name and her job as a hairdresser's assistant. The single’s sales started slowly, but by the end of July the record started to climb in the UK Singles Chart. At the end of August the record reached No. 1. Outside the UK "Have I the Right?" was a big success too. The song became #1 in Australia, Canada and Sweden. In the US the record reached #5 and in the Netherlands #2. "Have I the Right?" sold worldwide about two million copies within a year.

"The Best is Yet to Come" is a 1959 song composed by Cy Coleman, with lyrics written by Carolyn Leigh. It is generally associated with Frank Sinatra, who recorded it on his 1964 album It Might as Well Be Swing, accompanied by Count Basie, under the direction of Quincy Jones. It was the last song Sinatra sang in public, on February 25, 1995, and the words "The Best is Yet to Come" are etched on Sinatra's tombstone.
