I woke up yesterday (4th of January) to the sad news that Phil Everly had died. Phil was the younger of the two Everly brothers. With his brother Don they had a a string of hits in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including “Wake Up Little Susie”, “All I Have to do is Dream” and “Bye Bye Love”.
I first came across an Everly Brothers song when I heard the Simon and Garfunkel version of their song “Bye Bye Love”, and after hearing it tracked down the original. The Everly Brothers were a big influence on Simon and Garfunkel’s vocal harmonies, but they also influenced many other artists including The Beatles. Here is “Bye Bye Love”. Enjoy!
Which is your favourite Everly Brothers song?
