SOTD: The Duprees- “You Belong To Me” (1958)

This is a classic that has unforntuntely slipped through the cracks over the years. This song was brought to my attention by none other than Atlas Sound aka Bradford Cox, through his own cover version. If radio stations really played classic rock, then songs like this would be on it, at least through my perspective. Instead Classic (Corporate!) Rock stations play the likes of Guns N Roses and Foreigner or whatever the fuck they are calling classic rock these days. Then again they play some solid stuff too, but it’s not the same, it’s not the same rock and roll as this. Oh well, at least we have each other. Enjoy.

P.S. below is the Atlas Sound cover from the Altitude Sickness EP.

This is one of the best playlists/mixes I have ever made, or at least one of my favorites.  It consists, for the most part, of old 50s-60s doo wop, rock and roll ballads and Atlas Sound covers of such songs. All of the songs are very chill and have a dream-like quality to them, perfect for the wee hours of the morning, when the sun is risin’.
