Bobby Vinton produced close to 50 chart hits during the 1960s and 1970s, including four that reached number one. Jusa about all his big hits were ballads with lyrics about love and longing.
One of the biggest hits of his career was “Blue Velvet,” which topped the charts for three weeks. It was not his first song with Blue in the title, however.
“Blue On Blue” was the single that preceeded “Blue Velvet.” Released during the spring of 1963, it became a big hit in its own right, reaching number three on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
Bobby Vinton became a staple in Las Vegas and is still out on the road today.
