~Favorite Oldies Songs~





Angel Baby - Rosie & The Originals



Songwriters: Rose Hamlin

It's just like heaven Being here with you You're like an angel Too good to be true

But after all I love you i do

Angel baby My angel baby

When you are near me My heart skips a beat I can hardly stand on My own two feet

Because i love you I love you i do

Chorus: Angel baby my angel baby Ooh ooh i love you Ooh ooh i do No one can love you Like i do Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Please never leave me Blue and alone If you ever go Im sure you'll come back home

Because i love you I love you i do



*Video*



Jimmy Durante - Young At Heart 1954


Songwriters: Carolyn Leigh, Johnny Richards Fairy tales can come true – It can happen to you If you’re young at heart. For it’s hard, you will find, To be narrow of mind If you’re young at heart. You can go to extremes With impossible schemes; You can laugh when your dreams Fall apart at the seams; And life becomes exciting with each passing day, And love is either in your heart… or on its way. Don’t you know that it’s worth Every treasure on earth To be young at heart? For, as rich as you are, It’s much better by far To be young at heart. And, if you should survive To a hundred and five, Look at all you’ll derive Just by being alive! Now, here is the best part: You have a head start If you are amongst the very young… At heart.

And, if you should survive To a hundred and five, Look at all you’ll derive Just by being alive! Now, here is the best part: You have a head start If you are amongst the very young… At heart.

"Angel Baby" by Rosie & the Originals was a bestseller in Los Angeles for decades. It seems to have been a follow-on to Earth Angel.

In the instrumental interlude in "Angel Baby", the sax player blows a sour note, throws the pianist off, and the pianist throws the drummer off. It's almost a train wreck.

It was recorded on a broken down Webcor tape machine in one of the band member's garages.

I like this version. On July 28, 1966, it was playing on the car radio while we waited behind a flatbead truck loaded with tomatoes that was stopped for a red light in Naples. Before the light turned green, some scugnizzi--the street kids of Naples--darted out and stole a crate of tomatoes from thhe truck.

I used Rosie and the Originals “Angel Baby” to take wallpaper off the wall. She sounded like what happened when I stepped on the tails of several of my cats all at the same time.

Oldie but Goldie
* Rocket 88
* Smokey Places - The Corsairs
* Broken Hearted Melody - Sara Vaughn
* “Dream Lover” - Bobby Darin (And “Queen of the Hop”)
* “Lonely Teardrops” and “Reet Petite” by Jackie Wilson
* “All Shook Up” and “Jailhouse Rock” Elvis
* “Dream” - Everly Brothers
* “Great Balls of Fire” - Jerry Lee Lewis
* “Johnny Be Good” - Chuck Berry

I could write titles for months. The 50’s had the greatest “oldies” (and you could dance to all of them).

Lots of “Do Whop” should also be on this list, Spaniels, Skyliners, Sonny Til and the Orioles, Moonglows, etc.

Where to start? There are a million oldies I love, but for some reason “slow dancing” popped into my head. I think this is one of the best “slow dancing” songs. Play this one with your gal in your arms and you’ve got her forever.

In The Still Of The Night.

In 1991, I actually saw Rosie Hamlin lip-synch “Angel Baby” in a TV studio in Long Beach, Calif. when I was working as a volunteer with an “oldies” telecast.
