Come A Little Bit Closer (1964)
Time for another round of Throwback Thursday!
This is where we get to listen to some great music from days gone by.
Today’s music comes to us from 1964.
Wikipedia tells us this about today’s tune:
"Come a Little Bit Closer" is a song by the 1960s rock and roll band Jay and the Americans. It reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 on 21 November 1964, making it the band's highest-charting single. It remains their most popular song, according to Last.fm song rankings. It also peaked at number 4 on the Cashbox chart and at number 1 on RPM's singles chart. The single served as a comeback for the group, who had not had a hit in some time.
It was written by songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, as well as Wes Farrell, and became Boyce and Hart's first top 10 hit.
Jay and the Americans also recorded a Spanish version of the song, in which, due to a poor translation, the final punch line is missing.
