Two Song Tuesday -- Sam Cooke
This past weekend, my pal Janet got me thinking about Sam Cooke and some favorites from my youth. Yep. That's right. MY youth, you know, in the early 80s. While kids today are gaga for Justin Bieber, I was a few decades behind my classmates stuck in the 60s. I spent much of my preteen angst wallowing in Lesley Gore melodrama and a whole host of K-Tel "electrifying hits" of the 60s and the like. I had a favorite Righteous Brothers album that featured both of these Sam Cooke songs and well, like another of his songs say, they "send me."
