I was driving back to Pompey on the M27 today and on came “Earth Angel”. I’ll always miss new Doo-Wop (nothing since Reuben & the Jets perhaps?) but what made me think more particularly about this topic was Skeeter Davis singing “End of the World” and all those spoken passages in old pop songs (“Are You Lonesome Tonight”, “Ebony Eyes” too). Does anyone ever do that now? (and no, Rap doesn’t count).
