This was written by Conway Twitty with his drummer Jack Nance between sets at the Flamingo Lounge, Hamilton.
Conway Twitty was US singer Harold Lloyd Jenkins. He changed his name in 1957 upon signing with Sun Records (although nothing was released) and the next year he switched to MGM with whom he recorded this. He changed his musical style to country in 1965 and scored 41 chart toppers on the Country charts before dying from cardiac arrest in 1993.
In 1970, Glen Campbell's cover reached #10 in the US and #4 in Britain. UK singer Billy Fury also reached #10 with this in the UK in 1964. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)
Steven Tyler of Aerosmith
Tyler talks about his true love: songwriting. How he identifies the beauty in a melody and turns sorrow into art.
He wrote "She Blinded Me With Science" so he could direct a video about a home for deranged scientists.
