BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
I love this song, even though to say it is strongly influenced by Gary "U.S." Bonds hit "Quarter To Three" is to understate the situation. "(Homage" or even "steal" is probably closer to the mark.) But god, this IS a great song too. And Dion was/is a superb singer. I've often wondered if his later-acknowledged heavy heroin addiction in the 1950s and the 1960s may have informed his soulfulness...
It's just about irresistible for me, but then I like all Dion's stuff from that era. Don't know if the heroin had any influence, but I'm glad it didn't hurt his singing.
