The Roots Of A Hit Song


About the show

Playing tracks by

Harry Nilsson, Petula Clark, The Crystals, The Temptations, Carson & Gaile and more.

Songs you know and love but not the versions you're familiar with. Hear the original versions of tunes that later became hits for other bands or performers. Some cases it was the original composer, in others, it was just the luck of the draw, timing, lack of promotion by a label-who knows? What made songs like "Wild Thing", "Something Stupid", Everybody's Talkin'" or "Bend Me, Shape Me" hits. You're about to discover some of the reasons.


Oh snap, there was a playback error!
