It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin'
Johnny Tillotson Lyrics


I cry myself to sleep each night
Wishing I could hold you tight
Life seems so empty since you went away
The pillow where you'd lay your head
Now holds my lonely tears instead
And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone

It keeps right on a-hurtin' every minute of the day
Every hour you're away I feel so lonely
And I can't help it, I don't think I can go on
And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone

They say a man should never cry
But when I see you passin' by
My heart breaks down and cries a million tears
You broke my heart and set me free
But you forgot your memory
And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone

It keeps right on a-hurtin' every minute of the day
Every hour you're away I feel so lonely
And I can't help it, I don't think I can go on
And it keeps right on a-hurtin' since you're gone

Sorry I evidently
didn't see your
earlier comment,
there being so many to scroll
through. (For a change of pace,
when you have 22
minutes to spare,
please watch Natalie Schwamova play
Tchaikovsky Piano
Concerto #1.
I have more comments on
this video than any other! You
probably would poop out trying
to scroll through
for all of them!)



Milton Moore

He had the most mature and gorgeous
voice of all the
"teen idols" of
his era. And he
has outlived most of them.
When God was
handing out the
most beautiful
singing voices,
Johnny Tillotson was among the first
in line.

We remember and loved these songs so much because they were usually from our very early teen years. Those very special years and back then the songs actually told stories and had words we could understand.

I can track my whole life through songs that were popular when I was dating or when my first child was born and later. I think the memories are more intense than the actual feelings were at the time. I know I wasn't all that happy during any of these times, yet the memory is so bittersweet that I'm tempted to create in my mind a sweeter time than it was. Anyone else feel like that? Maybe now is the best time and we will realize it in 10 years!!

That feeling is called nostalgia. We tend to filter out the rough edges when remembering the "good 'ol days".

I'm always reminded of the quote from Andy on The Office: "I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them".

Marty Nutt

That is because we were young
And every memory is a place
In our hearts only we can
Go!
Love is love

Bill Moss

You could make those sentiments into a song! My particular favourite was Connie Francis, and I remember what I was doing if I relate to her records. It's like tinsel on the Christmas Tree unfortunately ; you put it up, you take it down. They weren't magically happy times, but were an escape through these records. Here in the UK, the 60s were actually pretty dismal, but listen to the archives, and it was all Beatles, fun, Carnabie Street, fashion. As trustworthy as an advert. Few enjoyed the lime-light; the vast majority just carried on suffering in near silence.
