I came home from work today, turned on my computer and found that Phil Everly, the younger brother of the Everly Brothers, passed away today. he was 76 years old. I grew up listening to their music. My mom was a big fan and always had their music playing.
I managed to forget that Thursday came and went and that’s when I usually do my select-a-sets. Since I didn’t get to it, today will be it. Clearly, the focus is on the Everly Brothers.
First – “Bye, Bye Love.” I just love this tune. It’s simple but I enjoy their vocals. I think many can relate to this song. This was also in the movie of the same name and that was a good flick! Very heartfelt.
Second – “When Will I Be Loved.” Yeah this song totally sums up my dating experience to put it nicely ha! This is a song I think many can relate to and it’s just fun to listen to, all in all a great song. Again, given how young they were, they were so talented and their voices were so harmonious and lovely to listen to.
Third – “Til’ I Kissed You.” This is my all time favorite by this duo! It’s so incredibly sweet and fun. Their music was simple but always so relatable and it was pure.
There were many more songs I loved by them including “Cathy’s Clown,” “All I Have to do is Dream,” “Crying in the Rain,” “Bird Dog,” and “Wake Up Little Susie” to name a few. There are more than that even. It’s always unfortunate to lose a talent like Phil. Thank God the music remains for all to enjoy. Rest in Peace Phil! Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us!
