Sam Cooke had one of the smoothest voices in music history. He began as a gospel singer but went on to place 43 songs on the BILBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart, 1957-1966. Who knows how many more would have followed had he not been shot and killed during December of 1964. He was inducted into the RocK And Roll Hall Of Fame during 1986.
“Send Me Some Lovin'” may not have been one of his memorable songs but it was a hit nonetheless. It first reached the BILLBOARD Pop Chart during January of 1966 and peaked at number 13. The flip side, “Baby Baby Baby” also charted at number 66.
Any of his Greatest Hits albums are still worth a listen today.
