MR. LONELY

Latest update on 20/06/2016

Artist: Bobby Vinton
Author: Gene Allan/Bobby Vinton
Label: Epic
Year: 1962

On lp Roses Are Red; n°1 US in '64. Bobby's record company preferred to use it on their newest discovery Buddy Greco first. That was no success, so two years later Bobby's Mr. Lonely got a second chance, grabbed with both hands. It's all about his experience as an army trooper.
