REWIND: The Everly Brothers - 'Bye Bye Love'

Another track that was one of my Dad's favourites. I remember him singing to this in the car, even when the song wasn't playing... But I'm mainly featuring this as a tribute to Phil Everly, one half of The Everly Brothers, who died yesterday aged 74. With his older brother Don, they were one of the biggest bands of the 1950s and early 1960s and were famous for their close harmonies. Their hits included 'Wake Up Little Susie', 'Cathy's Clown', 'Bye Bye Love', and 'All I Have To Do Is Dream'. The Everly Brothers were one of the first 10 acts to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when it was launched in 1986.'Bye Bye Love' was written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant... Personally I prefer George Harrison's version, but had to feature this one as a way of paying respects. RIP Phil.
