  1. Hi Joe, The one song that I always liked by Mr Benton,was Thank you pretty baby. My mom had that record and I used to play it til I wore it out. Another one, was by Nat King Cole, “Lazy hazy crazy days of summer” . I was just a kid, but it is funny how music plays an important part of our lives. Not to mention Bobby Rydell and from the late sixties and beyond, The Guess Who and Burton Cummings, who is currently making a strong come back in the states as we speak…Music, you gotta love it, it truly is the universal language.
