We’ve done surveys a lot lately, and I decided to get back to the themes I had been doing. Today’s theme: CATCH. Here are five songs with “catch” in the title.
Catch A Falling Star – Perry Como The first song I thought of when I came up with the theme, because I had been thinking “star.” Mr. Relaxation reached #2 in the US with this one in 1958. Its flip side, “Magic Moments,” spent eight weeks at #1 in the UK.
Catch Us If You Can – The Dave Clark Five The DC5 reached #5 with this in the US, UK, and Canada at different times in 1965.
You Can’t Catch Me – Chuck Berry I first heard The Blues Project cover this one, but Chuck played this for the 1956 movie Rock, Rock, Rock. It never charted, but it’s a good song anyway.
Catch The Wind – Donovan Another one I heard The Blues Project do first (yes, they were an eclectic band and yes, they were a big influence on me). It was his first single, released in 1965, and reached #4 in the UK and #23 in the US.
Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying – Gerry and The Pacemakers Another of the great Merseybeat bands, Gerry and The Pacemakers reached #6 in the UK and #4 in the US with this in 1964.
So there you have it, five songs with
“chase” “catch” (thanks, halfmoon-mollie!) in the title. Can you think of any others? That’s The Friday Five for July 8, 2016.
