Two Forgotten Friday Favorites: The Everly Brothers

The Beatles loved The Everly Brothers - Paul McCartney paid tribute to "Phil and Don" in his 1976 hit "Let 'em In." I consider them to be the biggest and most successful musical duo ever (even though Hall & Oates had slightly more songs in the Top 40.) So today I'm highlighting them for Two Forgotten Friday Favorites. Shame that technically for these posts I can only choose two songs - I love all of their hits, but here are two I haven't heard on the radio in forever. Enjoy!

I like these guys, but have to admit I don't know many of their songs. One of them had a daughter who was married to Axel Rose for a period of time. I believe Sweet Child of Mine is about her and she's in the video. Beautiful girl.

Yay! Good music to end the week! Thanks!

When their records were current, I liked them for the catchy tunes but have continued to find their really close harmonies just SO gorgeous! And you *can* hear intimations of some of the Beatles harmonies in their work. "Til I Kissed You" is probably my favorite of their tunes. Thanks for letting me hear it again!

I still have their greatest hits album and am glad that I didn't get rid of it as I did with many of my records.
