2012

I decided to take a day off of blogging for new years, but don't worry because I'm back. For today I'm going to post some songs that are in a different field of what I have been posting. It's a duo from the late 1950's from New York who have a very unique sound. The name of the group is called Santo & Johnny, you may have heard some of their songs in some major motion pictures or elsewhere. I'm posting these songs so that we can all cruise into the new year nice and relaxed, so here they are:

Song: Sleep Walk
Album: Santo & Johnny

Song: Caravan
Album: Santo & Johnny

Song: Summertime
Album: Santo & Johnny

The duo have a very distinct sound because of the custom steel guitar that is used. They usually play slow and relaxed melodies but can also perform faster songs. The song 'Sleep Walk' would become their most successful song and essentially one of their only hits. Even though this band had a short spark of success, their other tunes are still great. Apparently the two are still active in music to this day though they don't play together anymore. Anyway, this is a great band to start off the new year, nice and relaxed. Happy New Year's everyone!
