Zindy Lou – The Chimes 1955 and The Mariners 1956

Today I am posting two versions of the same song as I really like them both for different reasons.

The first is by ‘The Chimes’ 1955,

I find the rhythm and pace of this version quite laid back and hypnotic and the sax make if feel slightly sexier.

The second version is by ‘The Mariners’ 1956

More of an energetic performance I feel which progresses into what could potentially be a dancing frenzy. Not as sexy but definitely just as fun.
