Today, our Original Artist is the artist most associated with the song, he didn’t write it, but it was co-written by someone related to him. An album bearing the song’s name went to number one on this day in the 60’s. This artist was associated with a certain color or perhaps, or maybe better put, with the absence of color…

The song is not something you’d want on your finger.

There have been many who have covered this song, the Shadow artist we are looking for today may be the most recent. He puts a very different spin on the song which feels quite natural. The Shadow artist hails from the St. Louis area and was part of an Air Force singing group that became a You Tube sensation.
