Sunglasses After Dark




Hello children, gather ‘round and listen to that story…
Dwight Pullen was born in the poor neighbourhood of Blountsville, Alabama on March 5, 1931 .He penned 'Everybody's Got A Date But Me' and co-wrote 'She She Little Sheila' for Gene Vincent's 'Crazy Times' LP (1959). He’d cut Sunglasses After Dark' (Carlton 455) in 1958, but the record sadly failed to ignite the charts .Anyway, 'Sunglasses' has passed into that select group of discs that are now rightly regarded as rock 'n' roll classics. Unfortunately, Dwight Pullen was another victim of cancer : he died on November 24, 1961. He was only 26.
I hate mondays.

Alright, I'm on to you now... I think you're going through the Songs The Cramps Taught Us compilations one track at a time, finding more songs by the same artists, and googling up some interesting bio info to go with it. Well, it's a formula for success! Keep up the great work (and if you don't know what comps I'm talking about, check 'em out... you've posted probably half the songs from them already!).

Hey, I wasn't complaining, folks... I was just wondering why so many of these songs were familiar to me. I applaud the fine work of the Reverend!
