In the past I would sometimes buy an album or CD for just one song. That was back in the days when we had to do that. Now if we just like one song, we just buy that one song! Ah, digital music….
Billy Idol’s 1990 album “Charmed Life” is one such album. I bought it for “Cradle of Love” and pretty much dismissed the rest of the album….
….until I equalized the album yesterday. That’s when I discovered “Endless Sleep.”
I knew the song from somewhere; Wikipedia helped me out.
The original song was written and sung by Jody Reynolds (1932-2008) in 1958. Yes, I did have it in my music collection.
“Endless Sleep” peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1958.
Jody Reynolds was born in Denver, raised in Shady Grove, Oklahoma, and eventually settled in Palm Springs, California, working in real estate for Fred Sands Realty in La Quinta. He also had a cat named Bandit. Music, real estate, California, and cats…. Obviously a great guy!
