Jerry Lewis? No, Gary Lewis.

Jerry Lewis?  No, Gary Lewis.

I remember the first time I saw Gary Lewis on TV.  He was the kid that looked and sounded just like his dad.  I thought “Oh Boy, we do NOT need another Jerry Lewis… one is great, two would be too much!”  I was very relieved a couple of years later when he became a successful musician with a string of hits in the 60’s.  One of his hits during the summer of 1965 went all the way to #2 on the Hot 100.  The song was “Save Your Heart For Me”, and it was one of seven songs in a row from the band that reached the top ten.  Plus DJ’s loved the record because it was under two minutes long.  Here’s another song that was a huge hit, but is a forgotten oldie today.
