(Nov 10, 2012): Percy Faith and His Orchestra – Theme from “A Summer Place”

From the 1959 single, Theme from “A Summer Place”/Go-Go-Po-Go. This song has the distinction of being on top of the Billboard charts the week I was born (Mar 20, 1960). It still holds the record for time spent at number 1 in the Hot 100.  The song was written by Max Steiner for, quite obviously, the 1959 movie, “A Summer Place”.   It is not the opening theme, however, but as song in the movie and it was originally know as the “Molly and Johnny Theme”.
