Lloyd Price wrote this massive hit with Harold Logan. Although it is obviously about a woman, it attached itself to him, and he became known as Mr Personality.
The song was also recorded by Anthony Newley, and his version made #6 in the UK shortly before Price's recording hit. The B Side to the Newley recording was "My Blue Angel"; the original runs to just 2 minutes 35 seconds and was released on the ABC-Paramount label backed by "Have You Ever Had The Blues", apparently with no questionmark. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England, for above 2)
His song "Into The Night" is one of the most-played of all time. For Benny, it took him to hell and back.
Meet the "sassy basket" with the biggest voice in country music.
Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett are just a few of the artists who have looked to Clark for insightful, intelligent songs.
Loudon Wainwright III
"Dead Skunk" became a stinker for Loudon when he felt pressure to make another hit. His latest songs deal with mortality, his son Rufus, and picking up poop.
