In 1980 (?) there was a movie being released that looked good, and I was waiting for it to get to the theaters. The big night came, and I saw what was to become one of my favorite movies ever. It was "The Blues Brothers", and man, did it have some stars in it. Aretha! Ray Charles! I got to hear Duck Dunn SPEAK. (For some reason, I was surprised that he sounded as Southern as I did myself.)
In one of the scenes with Murf and The Magic Tones (Steve Cropper!), they were playing this song. It stuck in my head, and I spent the next few weeks trying to find out what the title was and who had recorded it. Called the radio stations in town, even went to the libraries to search. Nothing. Finally, on one of my hunting trips to a used record store, I stumbled over an old album that had the song on it.
Back then, I didn't know "Quando, Quando, Quando" from "Three Blind Mice", but I do now. Of all of the versions out there, I like this one the best. I love my Englebert Humperdinck; it takes a man to say that my friends!
