                • 'Only The Lonely' was written by Roy Orbison & Joe Melson. They
                  offered it to Elvis Presley & The Everly Brothers, and they turned
                  it down. So Roy Recorded it himself and had a Global Hit with it.
                  It was the World's 7th Best Selling Single of 1960, in one Listing
                  and the 15th, in another Listing. I can certainly imagine either Elvis,
                  or The Everly Brothers Singing it - but Elvis especially....

                                    • 'Mission Bell' by Donnie Brooks, is almost unknown in the UK.
                                      I first heard it when I bought a US 10 CD 'Rock & Roll' Box Set,
                                      about 12 Years ago. I found it to be very attractive. The Female
                                      backing Singers, get as much vocal time as Donnie does, as they
                                      reply to his lines. It has been covered by Gene Pitney, P.J. Proby,
                                      and even Fleetwood Mac, who Recorded it for their 'Kiln House'
                                      Album, in 1970. The Donnie Brooks original was a USA No.7 Hit.

                                                        • 'Look For A Star' was written for the 1960 UK Horror Film 'Circus Of Horrors'.
                                                          Tony Hatch wrote it, under the name Mark Anthony. It was a No.7 UK Hit, for
                                                          Garry Mills, who sang it in the Film. The Film was then released in the USA,
                                                          and the Song was liked so much, that several Artists covered it. The most
                                                          successful US recording of it, was done by Buzz Cason, who did so under the
                                                          name of Garry Miles. His version was a No.16 US Hit. However, 2 other USA
                                                          Acts had Hits with it. Billy Vaughn and His Orchestra - No.19 and the Singer,
                                                          Deane Hawley, who probably Sang it the best - No.29. Also, Garry Mills Original,
                                                          was a No.26 US Hit. So, 'Look For A Star', reached the US Top 30 for 4 different
                                                          Artists, in 1960. It was was very popular, despite it being, rather out of place, in a
                                                          Horror Film. It is a rather engaging Song. It is the only part of the Film that I really
                                                          recall, and I've seen it twice - but not for many Years. Despite his First name, looking
                                                          ike a Female version of Dean, Deane Hawley is actually a Male Singer...
