Songs of Doo Wop Letters

Today we are enjoying three ‘Doo Wop’ songs all about Letter Writing!

This is one of my blog post topics I have been working on (as mentioned in my blog post #270) and so sharing it today, even though the actual CD I have been trying to attain is best described as ‘elusive’ and I am on sort of a wish list:  the cd is “Doo-Wop Love Letters” and more on it below in this blog post.

Nonetheless I wanted to include three of the songs listed from it here today.  So take a break from the already playing Christmas carols that are playing (you might be inspired to find or make a pink poodle skirt of your own or slick back your hair with your favorite comb) and enjoy!

“Write Me A Letter” by The Blossoms

“Please Write” by The Tokens (yes, the group that sang “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”)

And finally “Writing This Letter” by The Fairlanes

Below are two images – the cover and back of the CD that remains elusive to me to purchase – “Doo-Wop Love Letters” – and if you do a search on it you will end up finding it listed as no longer available, there is one spot at ebay who is ‘on vacation’ and I’ve even waitlisted it at one site.
