    James Darren starred in several US TV Shows. This included
    'The Time Tunnel' in the 1960's, and 'T.J. Hooker' in the 1980's.
    He was also one of those Actors, who could actually Sing. His
    'Goodbye Cruel World' Single, is about a Man, who has been
    betrayed by his Girl Friend. He decides to join the Circus, to
    start a new Life. It was written by Gloria Shayne Regney, and
    Noel, her Husband. They also wrote 'Do You Hear What I Hear?',
    which was much Covered, as it is a very lovely Christmas Song.
