Marty Robbins - Don't Worry on A Lifetime of Song 1951-1982 (1961)

Marty Robbins - Don't Worry (1961) WLCY RADIO HITS
"Don't Worry" is a 1961 country/pop single written and recorded by Marty Robbins. "Don't Worry" was Marty Robbins' seventh number one on the country chart and stayed at number one for ten weeks. The single crossed over to the pop chart and was one of Marty Robbins' most successful crossover songs, peaking at number three on the Hot 100

"Don't Worry" is an early example of guitar distortion. Session guitarist Grady Martin, using a faulty channel in the mixing-desk for his six-string bass, created a distorted sound. Although Martin did not like the sound, Robbins' producer left the guitar track as it was.

Elvis Presley - Are You Lonesome Tonight? on Top Ten Anthology - Elvis, Vol. 1 (1961)
"Are You Lonesome Tonight?" is a song which was written by Roy Turk and Lou Handman in 1926. It was recorded several times in 1927—first by Charles Hart, with successful versions by Vaughn De Leath, Henry Burr, and the duet of Jerry Macy and John Ryan. In 1950 the Blue Barron Orchestra version reached the top twenty on the Billboard's Pop Singles chart.



Download This Song

In April 1960, after Elvis Presley's two-year service in the United States Army, he recorded the song at the suggestion of manager Colonel Tom Parker; "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" was Parker's wife, Marie Mott's, favorite song. Its release was delayed by RCA Records executives, who thought the song did not fit Presley's new (and publicized) style. When "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" was released in November 1960 it was an immediate success in the U.S., topping Billboard's Pop Singles chart and reaching number three on the R&B chart. A month after the song's release, it topped the UK Singles Chart. Presley's version was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1961 and upgraded to double platinum in 1992.

"Mother-in-Law" is a 1961 song recorded by Ernie K-Doe. It was a number-one hit in the U.S. on both the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the Billboard R&B chart. The song was written and produced by Allen Toussaint, who also played the piano solo. It was issued by Minit Records.

After several unsuccessful takes, Toussaint balled up the composition and threw it away as he was leaving the room. One of the backup singers, Willie Hopper, thought that it was such a good song that he convinced K-Doe to give it one more try.

"Hats Off to Larry" is a song written and sung by Del Shannon, which he released as a single in 1961. The song spent 13 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 5, while reaching No. 1 on Canada's CHUM Hit Parade, No. 2 on New Zealand's "Lever Hit Parade", No. 2 in Australia, No. 6 on the UK's Record Retailer chart, and No. 8 in South Africa.

"Hats Off to Larry" - Del Shannon, #5, 6-61; #9 U.K., 9-61. No weepy sayonaras for Del Shannon locked into a never-before-attempted new lyrical concept - you pat the romantic rival on the back, because you're glad your annoying ex is gone. Shannon leads off with the Am-G-F-E7 run again. He shifts to the Key of 'A' major when the lines are complete, running down a modified streetcorner pattern on "Hats off the Larry" who broke her heart. He pumps the IV chord minor to torque up the drama, and ratchets the falsetto flourish. Del's twisty lyrical actually congratulates rival Larry for breaking her heart after she'd hurt Del. Del's third hit in a row takes it a step farther, perhaps launching the mixed-bag genre of Revenge Rock [ Maury Dean - Rock and Roll: Gold Rush]

Tony Orlando - Bless You on Rare Oldies But Goodies (1961)
"Bless You" is a song written by Barry Mann and Cyntia Weil, produced by Al Nevins and Don Kirshner, "Bless You" reached No 15 for Tony Orlando, debuted the week of Aug.14.1961

"Bless You" was a breakthrough for Mann personally as well as for Mann and Weil professionally. Although Mann had taken songwriting and his singing career seriously, he had never seemed deeply engaged by pop music and its expressive possibilities. His music had been aloof. If his songs weren't parodies, they went through the motions of emotion. The melody of "Bless You" was much more expansive than most of Mann's previous work and much more successful.

Johnny Tillotson - Poetry In Motion on Hits Of The 60s (1960)

The song was written by Paul Kaufman (1930–1999) and Mike Anthony (born 1930), who said that the inspiration for it came from looking up from their work and seeing a procession of young ladies from a nearby school pass by on the sidewalk outside each afternoon. Bill Porter supervised the recording session in Nashville, Tennessee, which featured saxophonist Boots Randolph and pianist Floyd Cramer. An alternative version, with King Curtis on saxophone, was recorded some weeks earlier and published by Bear Family Records in 2011.

Marty Robbins - El Paso on Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs (1960)

Marty Robbins - El Paso on Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs (1960)
Reconsidering such a Latin (and more specifically mariachi) tinge in country music helps to understand why the 1959 song "El Paso" by Marty Robbins became such a huge hit for Robbins as well as a significant part of country music's history. Released in 1959, "El Paso" was the first song to rule the pop charts as the 1960s were ushered in, and propelled Marty Robbins to critical acclaim (e.g., a Grammy Award) and major commercial success. In fact, Marty Robbins was so successful with "El Paso" that it eventually spawned two popular sequel songs, "Faleena" and "El Paso City", more Grammy Awards for Robbins and other accolades, and eventually helped Robbins get elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. 



Download This Song

Of course, of relevance for this analysis, "El Paso" was a Mexican corrido translated into English, and beyond the obvious outlaw/gunfighter narrative that puts it squarely within Mexican corrido tradition, the vocalizations by Marty Robbins left no doubt that he was mimicking Mexico's ranchera (or mariachi) singing style. Nonetheless, "El Paso" was so significant that it eventually resurfaced in rock music as a cover by the Grateful Dead and others.
