I've been trying to remember -- off and on for about two days -- the name of the British, good-looking, brown haired young male singer in the mid to late 1960's. I can't even remember the name of one of his songs but I know I really liked his songs. We were living in Canada at the time, but I assume he was known on the pop charts in the United States, too. I was thinking I'd like to see a video on You Tube of him singing some of those songs I loved and then I realized I absolutely cannot remember his name. He was singing about a girl or love lost or love forever or something. He had a great voice and a great sound. It might have been about the time of Buddy Holly, but a different sound to this artist.
Buddy Holly died in 1959, but I am still trying to think of British male pop stars. Cliff Richard comes to mind, but Billy J. Kramer was more memorable in looks and music. He recorded a Lennon/McCartney tune "Bad to Me" and followed up w/ "Little Children." The other one is Donovan, more of a hippie, with "Sunshine Superman." I hope that helps jog your memory!
Cliff Richard has always been considerably more popular in Britain than in North America. I can recall a handful of hits in the early 1960's, such as Summer Holiday, The Young Ones, Bachelor Boy, It's All in the Game, and Don't Talk to Him. Though he continued with a string of hits in Britain, he sort of disappeared from the North American airwaves, until a big hit in the mid-seventies, called We Don't Talk Anymore.
Apparently, at 70 years old, he still tours regularly. Good for him.
