Publisher's note: I have initiated this new segment on BCN, where I determine the Best Music Ever ... and, 'with a little help from my friends'. I do this from my opinion, for what that is worth, where I will measure the best music that I am familiar with.
I do this for two reasons: 1) I want to expose the best music that I know to the rest of us. 2) Popular Music today may be the very worst it has ever been, and that is saying much, since I lived through Disco.
For a list of all of the contributions to this series, please click here.
As previously mentioned, there will be others who share their favorites with our BCN readers, in particular here, Bobby Tony.
If you were fortunate to have a girl friend and a record player in the mid to late fifties, Chances Are you used these songs to try and convince her of your love. But your odds were more like the Twelfth of Never.
Johnny Mathis –Chances Are- 1957
Twelfth of Never -1957
I can hardly get through this whole album without getting a lump in my throat over what could have been.
