The Great Pretender
I loved all rock & roll music when I was growing up: Elvis, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, The Platters, The Drifters, Ricky Nelson, Pat Boone. The list goes on. But no songs struck a chord in me like the Five Satins' In the Still of the Night, followed closely by To The Aisle. I listened to the radio day and night, and each time those songs were played I danced around and around the room, pretending I was dancing with whichever boy I had a crush on at the time.
Is it any wonder The Great Pretender was another favorite of mine? :)
