Everly Brothers - Nice Fmily

Watch the Everlies sing their hits 'Wake up little Susie' and 'Should we tell him' in 1958.

51 years ago!

This was written by the husband and wife team of Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, who wrote most of The Everly Brothers songs in the '50s. Their songs were also recorded by Bob Dylan, Elvis, and Buddy Holly.

This is about a young couple who fall asleep at the drive-in, realize they are out past curfew, and make up a story to tell Susie's parents.

Some Boston radio stations banned this because of the lyrics. At the time, staying out late with a girl was a little controversial.

For The Everly Brothers, this was the first of 4 US #1 hits. It also went to #1 on the Country & Western charts.

At an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show while campaigning for President in year 2000, George W. Bush was asked by Oprah what his favorite song was. He said: "Wake Up Little Susie - by Buddy Holly."

Simon and Garfunkel played this at their 1981 concert in Central Park. The live recording was released as a single the next year and hit #27 in the US.

Chet Atkins played guitar on this. Atkins, who died of cancer in 2001, was a Nashville musician who created a distinctive sound using a 3-fingered picking technique.

The supreme leader and his buddies, including Ahmadinejad ignorantly and very indiscreetly manipulated the votes on a drastic scale, betrayed the Iranian nation, and angered the people.
They are fighting to the last droplet of blood for victory .
