Sweeter than wine Softer than the summer night Everything I want, I have Whenever I hold you tight
This magic moment while your lips are close to mine Will last forever, forever 'till the end of time
(Magic, magic) Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh Magic moment (magic, magic) Magic moment (magic, magic) Magic moment (magic, magic)

Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 22nd 1968, "This Magic Moment" by Jay and the Americans entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on March 2nd, 1969 it peaked at #6 (for 1 week) and spent 14 weeks on the Top 100... Eight years earlier on February 16th, 1960; the original version by the Drifters entered the Top 100, it peaked at #16 on March 28th, 1960 and stayed on the Top 100 for 11 weeks... In 1989 Rick James combined it with another Drifters hit,"Dance With Me", his version reached #74 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart...
Barry from Sauquoit, NyGreat song; can't believe it only reached No. 16 on the Top 100. My 2nd favorite Drifter's record, the 1st being "There Goes My Baby". I remember when I first heard "There Goes My Baby" I was completely bowled over by the violins playing it the background, who would have have believed it, violins on a pop record!!!!
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
