Let’s Remember Dave Clark 5 and Rosemary Clooney

This week of Let’s Remember we salute the American artist Rosemary Clooney and the English pop group Dave Clark 5.

Rosemary Clooney born May 23, 1928 was an American singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the song Come On-a My House, which was followed by other pop numbers such as Mambo Italiano / Tenderly / Half as Much / Hey There / This Ole House/ Sway. She also had success as a jazz vocalist. Clooney’s career languished in the 1960s but revived in 1977, when her White Christmas co-star Bing Crosby asked her to appear with him at a show marking his 50th anniversary in show business. She continued recording until her death in 2002.

The Dave Clark Five (DC5) formed in 1958 in Tottenham, London. Drummer Dave Clark served as the group’s leader, producer and co-songwriter. In January 1964 they had their first UK top ten single, Glad All Over, which knocked the Beatles’ I Want to Hold Your Hand off the top of the UK Singles Chart. Although this was their only UK # 1, they topped the US chart in December 1965, with their cover of Bobby Day’s Over and Over. Their other UK top 10 hits include Bits and Pieces / Can’t You See That She’s Mine / Catch Us If You Can / Everybody Knows /The Red Balloon / Good Old Rock ‘n’ Roll  and a version of Chet Powers‘ Get Together.
