“Too Many Teardrops… For One Heart… To Be Cryin’… Too Many Teardrops… For One Heart… To Carry On…” –QUESTION MARK And THE MYSTERIANS (“96 Tears” (1966))

…You’re Way On Top Now.

.Since You Left Me.

.You’re Always Laughin’.

.Way Down At Me.

.But Watch Out Now.

.I’m Gonna Get There.

.We’ll Be Together.

.For Just A Little While.

.And Then I’m Gonna Put You.

.Way Down Here.

.And You’ll Start Cryin’.

.96 Tears

… … …

…Cry.

.Cry…

… … …

…And When The Sun Comes Up.

.I’ll Be On Top.

.You’ll Be Right Down There.

.Lookin’ Up.

.And I Might Wave.

.Come Up Here.

.But I Don’t See You.

.Wavin’ Now.

.I’m Way Down Here.

.Wonderin’ How.

.I’m Gonna Get You.

.But I Know Now.

.I’ll Just Cry.

.Cry.

.I’ll Just Cry…

… … …

…Too Many Teardrops.

.For One Heart.

.To Be Cryin’.

.Too Many Teardrops.

.For One Heart.

Question Mark and The Mysterians

***\/\/***\/\/***\/\/***

When I Awoke This Morning…

…I Wanted My Music.

First Thing.

Before I Even Bothered To Use The Restroom…

…Or Get My Coffee…

…Or Anything Else At All.

I Wanted Some Music.

I Keep My MP3Player Very Handy For Moments Such As This…

…And It’s Almost Always Set To SHUFFLE-PLAY.

I Turned It On.

I Fumbled With The Buttons.

I Selected A Song At Random…

…Without Even Bothering To Look At Exactly Which Song I’d Picked.

And This Song…

96 TEARS

…By…

QUESTION MARK And THE MYSTERIANS

…Was The Very First Song To Play.

I Immediately Smiled REALLY BIG…

…And Softly, I Said…

“YES. THIS IS THE SONG.”

I Knew It Right Off The Bat.

This Would Be The Highlight Tune Of My Day.

When Reading The Lyrics…

…Honestly…

…It Sounds Almost Saddening.

BUT BUT BUT…

…For Those Of You Whom Already Know It…

…You Know That Simply Is NOT The Case.

His Voice…

…The Speed Of The Song…

…And That EXCEPTIONAL Organ Playing Throughout It…

…Make This Song An EASY CHOICE To Say…

“I Always Smile When I Hear It. Regardless Of Where OR When.”

It Gives Me GREAT Pleasure To Spotlight This Little Number Today, Fo SHO!

I Had Actually Thought About Doing So Over Two-Weeks Ago.

I Just Hadn’t Got Myself ’round To It Yet.

I Can Easily…

…Honestly…

…Sincerely Recommend It To Y’all.

A Lot Of Y’all Already Know It…

…BUT…

…I’m Willing To Bet There Are More Of Y’all Who Have NEVER Heard It.

.Period.

OR, You’ve Heard It In Passing…

…Never Bothering To Actually LISTEN-Listen To It.

It’s One Of My Favorite Oldies-Tunes EVER EVER EVER…

…And I’d LOVE Knowing If You Even Cared For It One-Damn-Bit.

If You Do, GREAT!

WHY?!?

If You Don’t, OKIE-THE-DOKIE!

WHY?!?

My Curiosity Abounds This Morning.

So…

…Please…

…Feed My Curiosity…

…Please?!?

Catch Y’all Later, My Peeps.

Enjoy Your Day, If Possible.

If Not Possible…

…Well…

…Just Do The Best You Can.
