Love this one from Phil.
Always reminds me of finally meeting up with my pen friend of 35 years , 5 years ago.

Jason said Phil wrote this song to Jackie. Like to think so.

Kathyc -

What year was that written? It came out in 1975 after his divorce from Jackie and he was with Patricia.

I believe he wrote it in the late 1950's. His songs weren't considered then, there was quite a lot he was a more prolific writer than Don. Incidentally he made much more money than Don ever did at song writing, because other people recorded his songs. Where Don other than very early days seemed to only write for them.

Is there somewhere we can go to see a list of the songs Phil wrote for other people that were a hit? I'd be very interested in that.

Thanks!

Don't know I guess they must be there, there are several folk who do these lists. Maybe someone will give you the link. If you do get one let me see I'd be interested too. Was something I gave up on in the early 60's bought records by Pat Boone, Joe Melson and Bernie (swaltz) Ballentyne.

Believe it was in the wilderness years that the boys were apart that he wrote most.

I have known for a long time that Phil was a prolific song writer. If someone said they liked a song whilst he was still going through it in the studio Phil would give them it.
I know someone who may be able with stats Redhead and Kathy. I will ask.
A fantastic choice of song Lizzie, one of my favourites.

@LizzieB He always had a voice that was so cool and calm/ you can listen to phil sing all day and never get tired hearing

IN todays music world, we are not seeing or hearing the new singers with so much talent as the EVERLY BRO

Great song, sung so beautifully by Phil!! You can tell what a lovely man he was just by hearing his voice! Whoever he wrote it for, she must have been absolutely THRILLED!! If you think of Phil Everly singing that song to you....wow!! [Talking to the ladies of course!!] I too would love to see a list of all the songs Phil wrote and those Don wrote too. That would be so interesting!
