Today's song is In The Still of The Night.

Oh yes, I like this. The Five Satins did it better in my view but this is pretty good! Doo wop for ever.

Today's song is In The Still of The Night.

There's not too many songs that I love but which also can make me cringe at times. BBs version of In The Still Of The Night does this to me. As soon as the snare drum hits those two beats and the singing starts with the "Shoo-dooby-dooby-do" and Brian's still intact falsetto soars off, I instantly get a chill going down my spine. But I get put off by Dennis's lead. He sounds so off key and hung over (especially during "To keep your precious lo-o-o-o-o-ove") . Sometimes I don't notice it as much, other times it's all I can focus on. But the backing track is excellent. The original version is obviously the best and most ideal version. As far as a 1970's cover goes, Johnny Contardo from Sha Na Na sang it better. Put Contardo's lead over the BBs backing track and I'd give it 5. I don't like to criticize Dennis because I'm a huge fan of his. But his lead on this really stinks.

Not easy for me to rate this one...
So...
The backing track gets 5 stars....
Dennis's vocals gets 1 star.....

So the overall score from me is....
2.5 rounded to 3, I suppose. I really like the backing track.

Today's song is Just Once In My Life.

One of the standout tracks on 15BO and a great way to end the album.

I have a gritty alternative mix (of this and one or two other BO tracks) that makes the hairs on my neck stand up.

Bored even to review it, the song (regardless the singer) fails to be liked by me. 1.

At Halloween, Smiley posters should be disguised with smiley face masks. PS posters should be in green-brown costumes & each member imitates by mouth their favorite sounds. Easy, ain't it?

When I first heard this song (when I was a kid in the late 70s) I didn't like it, I pretty much skipped listening to it once it started playing. But my opinion has changed greatly and I now enjoy it quite alot (after rediscovering it in my 20s). I think it's one of the best tracks on the 15 Big Ones album. Sounds awesome when you play it loud. FIVE

Alway happy to see your vote, RR. Grin

I gave the album all of three as well (boring if nice at times, haha).

Last time I slapped a one on something I got all these strange looks. Never again. LOL

There are a few songs I really love (Had To Phone Ya, Back Home, Just Once In My Life), but some of the music is just flat out ugly. Mike's Everyone's In Love With You makes me woozy.
2/5

Dennis does a nice job on it. Wish he would've sang this good on In The Still Of The Night. Sounds a bit unfinished. Fun tune. THREE
