Mr. Lonely By Bobby Vinton

Many American artists did not survive the British Invasion as their hits and careers came to an abrupt halt. Such was not the case for Bobby Vinton, who continued to have hits into the 1970’s and remained a popular club attraction for over half-a-century.

“Mr. Lonely” was a song Vinton had recorded a number of years before its release as a single. During 1964, he was putting together his first Greatest Hits album and found himself one song short. “Mr. Lonely” was added and released as a single to promote the album. It proved a wise move as on December 12, 1964, it reached the top of the charts for a one week stay. It was the fourth number one record of his career.
