Don't Tell Me - The Last Times, and Dream Lover by Bobby Darin!

in #music5 months ago (edited)

Here's a Garage Rock tune with a familiar melody.

The description tells us all we could ever hope to know about the band. Apparently this song was recorded in Marion, Ohio in 1966, the key year for Garage Rock.

It starts with a slightly jangly guitar, then the drums and bass and vocals kick in. The recording is of decent production, very clear. There is some high end distortion but its not too bad.

You say love will pass away
But I know our love will stay
deep within our hearts, so true
I know that girl I love just you!
Yes I do! Yes I do!

That part right there, is sung over the melody from Dream Lover, originally by Bobby Darin!

The song has a fairly long and tasty guitar break. Check this one out!

You know it and you love it! Many do. This has 121 MILLION views, wow!

Every night I hope and pray
A dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms
And know the magic of her charms!

What do you think? Do you hear Dream Lover in Don't Tell Me?

I sure do! But it's cool because they picked a great song to model part of their Garage Rock tune upon. Good choice!
