Happy Birthday to Lou Christie!
Today is the birthday of one of my all time FAVORITE, FAVORITE, FAVORITE singers, Lou Christie!!
I saw him perform twice, with my husband, in recent years. I always loved the song, “I’m Gonna Make You Mine” then one summer I heard “The Gypsy Cried.” At first that song weirded me out (it is a scary song about a gypsy telling a guy beware of love!) Then I found the song comical. I started exploring his other music and loved everything. Each song is a true work of art — the voice, the production, the background vocals. I even learned that one of his back-up singers was in The Delicates, famous for the song “Black and White Thunderbird” — a song my husband and I got a kick out of .
So, Happy Birthday Lou! There are so many great songs by this man, but here are a few that I favor:
