Musical Interlude: Quarter to Three (1961)

Gary US Bonds scored a huge hit with "Quarter to Three", all the way back in 1961.

Nearly 20 years later, Bonds would have his last Top 40 hit, with the Bruce Springsteen-penned "This Little Girl". However, most fans still regard "Quarter" as his most successful hit.

Always liked this song and Bonds had been on and off the oldies circuit singing it.

The vid looks like it's from a later period - about 1965.

Can't tell for sure when that video was shot, so we'll stick with the year it came out.

Sha Na Na covered "Quarter" on their show, and you could actually get a better read on the lyrics from their version.
