There I’ve Said It Again reached the top of the BILLBOARD Hot 100 on January 4, 1964, and remained there for four weeks.It was not known at the time but it would mark the end of an era The Beatles were about to arrive in America. Vinton’s third number one single would officially end the pre-Beatles era in the United States.
Vinton was an easy listening crooner who in some ways did not fit in with the music of the British invasion era. Yet he became one of the few American artists to retain his popularity through The Beatles era and beyond. He had nine chart hits before the Beatles and 38 more after they reached America.
Vinton’s career is now well past the 50 year mark and he has maintained his popularity through an ever-changing musical landscape. His “There I’ve Said It Again,” in addition to being a huge number one hit, will always separate one era from another.
