My Favorite Song Weekend- Mary Hopkin

Mary Hopkin sang this song in 1968. Although it was first sung by the Limeliters in the early 1960, Mary is the one who made it popular. Her voice was a perfect match for the song. So Prefect that it was recorded by her on the Beatles Apple Label. Became the number 1 hit in the UK singles hit and the number 2 hit on the US billboard hits 100 and stayed there for six weeks! Others have tried to sing it, but in my opinion can not match up to Mary Hopkin. Perhaps it is because I remember that time and the song just resonates in my head with Mary's voice. It's Russian style music makes ones heart throb and you can not help but dance. The Lyrics speak of a past that seems to be slipping away. Maybe the time was not that great but the memories were.
