Monumental Soundbyte - 86

Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs - Stay

Another very old song. This song was written all the way back in 1953 and it has a funny beginning. At the time, Maurice was 15 years old and apparently he was trying to convince his date to stay out till 10pm. He lost the argument but the song is the result of that.
Its such a simple short song but so so catchy. I am sure a lot of you have heard it in one way or the other. You can listen to it on my soundbyte widget. It has been covered by a lot of groups but Maurice's version is the ish.

@36 inches of brown legs - the song is Unchained Melody. The most popular version, by the Righteous Brothers, was part of the soundtrack not of Dirty Dancing but of another Patrick Swazye film, Ghost.
