"16 Most Requested Songs"
Ahh... They sure don't make music like this anymore...
Before Rock n Roll, The Four Lads, as well as many other male vocalists acts,
displayed some incredible music with great melodies and harmonies. Their bigest
hits most remembered were "Standing On The Corner" and "Moments To Remember."
My memories of The Four Lads were having a few of their 45 rpm singles: "Istanbul
(Not Constantinople)" on the Columbia label, and "The Mocking Bird" on
the Okeh label. Columbia/Legacy Records created a wonderful compilation of the
Columbia songs of The Four Lads, and again, it surely displays music that is definitely
not available in the current decades of popular music.
Simply beautiful songs are "Who Needs You," "Magnificent Obsession" and
"No Not Much." "The Mocking Bird" is a different version thanh the
Okeh label version, and since I was so familar with the Okeh version, Okeh still stands
out in my mind. "There's Only One Of You" has a happy-go-lucky sound, where
the classic "Tonight" (from West Side Story) is truly beautiful, and one
of the best pre-Rock songs ever recorded. "Somebody Loves Me" is another
well-remembered songs (not particular by The Four Lads from my memory), and is very
"Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)" is another popular song (obviously by
Frank Sinatra), and again, The Four Lads do an incredible job on their version, with their
beautiufl hamronies. "Together (Wherever We Go), "Time After Time, "Breezin' Along
With The Breeze," "Why Can't You Behave" are songs that may not be remembered by some,
and most have the great pre-Rock style as Frank Sinatra. "Love Is A Many Splendored
Thing" reached #1 for The Four Aces, as The Four Lads' version is just as good.
The Four Lads' music easily shows how great music was in the early 1950s, before
Rock n Roll was born. Even in today's standards, this kind of music is much appreciated
by those who enjoyed it in their youths when it was in its prime, and to even some younger
music fans today, they all can agree that this IS music. The Four Lads have been performing
for over 50 years now, and are still performing today. Return to us now, the thrilling
years of pre-Rock n Roll -- The Four Lads' music will truly be enjoyed by those who remembered
in their prime, many decades that followed, and many decades to come, by older and young
music fans alike.
