It’s night time in the big city

A man falls asleep far from home

There’s a strange car parked outside

Singers and Songs

  • The Beatles
    “I think we all know there’s only one way to begin.”
  • Earl-Jean McCrea
    I’m Into Something Good
    “Ya know when I heard Herman’s Hermits sing it I thought it was just about having a piece of cake, or ridin’ on a Ferris wheel. But when I hear Earl-Jean sing it, I know exACTly what she’s talkin’ about!”
  • Vic Damone
    Something’s Coming
  • Billy Ward and the Dominoes (with Clyde McPhatter)
    Do Something For Me
    “Ya know, nobody sings like that anymore. He makes it sound effortless, no matter how difficult it really is. I like the elegance of a guy like Clyde McPhatter; it’s like watching Fred Astaire.”
  • Jimmy Ballard
    She’s Got Something
    “You can just tell he’s one of those guys raised on Western swing, looking forward to rockabilly. I sure would like to know more about him; if ya know anything, give us a call here at the station.”
  • (This Could Be The Start of Something Big)
    (Clip in background)
  • He Was Really Sayin’ Something
  • Eddie Cochran
    Somethin’ Else
    “You know, sometimes I get jealous of you people listening. Some of you are hearing these songs for the first time, and that must be exciting. I remember what it was like when I first heard ‘em, and I tell ya even after all these years it’s still an amazing record – but that first rush of hearin’ it…wow!”
  • Something’s Goin’ On In My Room
  • When Something is Wrong With My Baby
    “Here’s The Silver Fox, back when he still had a little bit of black in his hair.”
  • June Christy with Pete Rugolo
    Something Cool
    “A beautiful song of quiet despair…a lot of times the arranger gets ignored, but on a record like this you can’t imagine it without his touch.”
  • Bobby Marchan
    “Next up, part two of a two part record. Side one is kind of a straight read. Part two – it’s wild! Not surprisingly, the guy performing it is wild too.”
  • Something Different
  • Something In The Air
