Paul Evans !
Howdy Folks !
Due to popular demand (and a proper avatar), here’s Paul Evans !
Evans ((born 5 March 1938, in Queens, New York) performed in his high school years, got a scholarship to Columbia University and promptly set up his own radio show. His early career days were spent crooning in small clubs and aboard a cruise ship !
Evans began to score hit records in the early '60s, including "Seven Little Girls Sitting In The Back Seat", the fantastic "Happy-Go-Lucky Me" and "Hushabye, Little Guitar". He came up with another hit in 1979 with the morbid "Hello, This Is Joannie".
His activities as a songwriter easily pass up this perfectly respectable track record. Besides the ultra-hit written for Bobby Vinton ("Roses Are Red, My Love"), there was also a timely hit for the Kalin Twins entitled "When", a series of donations to the cause of Elvis Presley including "Something Blue" and "I Gotta Know" and many other songs for Jackie Wilson, Frankie Lymon, Fabian & the Coasters !
Mr Evans has soloed on many a commercial jingles and has been seen and heard on the "David Letterman Show", "As the World Turns", "Guiding Light" and "All My Children". His voice can be heard in the Woody Allen films, "Mighty Aphrodite" and "Everyone Says I Love You".
And that goes without saying, Happy-Go-Lucky Me" is the theme of John Waters' cult classic, "Pecker" !
