Dexter owned a bar in the 1930s and helped popularize the style of country music known as honky tonk. He made his recording debut on November 28, 1936 for ARC Records and he was probably the first artist to use the term "honky tonk" in a country song when he recorded "Honky Tonk Blues" at his first session. His tremendous hit "Pistol Packin' Mama" became the 1943 marching chorus of the New York Yankees. The 1943 movie of the same name, made by the Republic Pictures, gave Dexter close to $250,000 in royalties.

US Route 66 was formally established on November 11, 1926. The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in the United States, originally ran from Chicago through the states of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before terminating in Santa Monica, California covering nearly 4000 kms. It was recognized in popular culture by both the hit song "(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66" and the Route 66 television series, which aired from 1960 to 1964. In John Steinbeck's classic American novel, The Grapes of Wrath (1939), “Route 66" symbolized escape and loss.

This song was also featured on Cole’s 1956 album, After Midnight.

"Waves of the Danube" (Romanian: Valurile Dunării) is a waltz composed by Iosif Ivanovici in 1880, and is one of the most famous Romanian tunes in the world. The song has many variations throughout the piece, reminiscent of the music of Johann Strauss. Through the Viennese style variations, there is still a distinct Slavic style. In the United States, it is frequently referred to as "The Anniversary Song", a title given by Al Jolson when he and Saul Chaplin released their adaptation of the song in 1946.

Paul McCartney – backing vocals, bass guitar
George Harrison – backing vocals, lead acoustic guitar, 12-string guitar
Ringo Starr – drums
Produced by George Martin, 1965
Recorded at EMI Studios, London 11 November 1965

"Girl" was the last complete song recorded for that album. "Girl" is considered to be one of the most melancholic and complex of the Beatles' earlier love songs. John Lennon commented: "'Girl' is real. There is no such thing as the girl, she was a dream, but the words are all right. It wasn't just a song, and it was about that girl – that turned out to be Yoko, in the end – the one that a lot of us were looking for.

In November 1977, Capitol Records scheduled the United States release of "Girl" backed with "You're Going to Lose That Girl" as a single (Capitol 4506) to accompany the release of Love Songs, a Beatles' compilation album that contains both of these songs. However, the single was cancelled before it was issued. Promotional copies, which featured "Girl" on both sides—one in stereo, the other mono, along with a picture sleeve, were issued.

Recorded by Bill Szymczyk, George Schowerer

Robert Stanley Crewe b. Nov 12, 1930 Newark NJ / d.  Sept 11, 2014 (83) Scarborough, Maine

Phil Saunders holds the newspaper obituary of his nephew, American record producer and songwriter Bob Crewe. When Crewe died four years ago, his obituary in Newfoundland newspapers made no mention of his connection to the province through his parents. Today, Saunders and several other relatives are telling the little-known story of that proud Newfoundland connection. His father was from Dawson’s Cove — now Sandyville — while his mother hailed from Heart’s Delight. Some of The Four Seasons’ biggest hits might never have been written if it weren’t for two Newfoundlanders. That includes tunes such as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” It’s a little-known fact that the songwriter behind countless 1960s and 1970s-era hits has Newfoundland roots. Famous American record producer, manager, songwriter and artist Bob Crewe was born in New Jersey in 1930.

This was a band from Sault Saint Marie, Ontario. Due to the fact that there was another band from Saskatchewan called The Rogues 5 as well as a Toronto banding calling themselves ‘The Rogues’, they used the bracketed (Those) Rogues changed their name to Great Flood. The Toronto Rouges changed their name to Mandala.

Debbie Lori Kaye, a New York born singer who was raised in The Soo, was looking for a backup band. Her father was a disc jockey at Soo radio station CKCY and asked a local group to allow her to sing in the band. She and the band toured around Southern Ontario for nearly a year before they broke up.

Produced by Brian Wilson, 1965
Released: July 5, 1965

Brian Wilson conceived the song during his first acid trip, later arranging and producing the song's recording.  Wilson was quoted saying in 1986, "[The song was] something I'm very proud of in a sense because it represents the Beach Boys really greatest record production we’ve ever made. It goes back to 1965 when I was sitting in my apartment, wondering how to write a song about girls, because I love girls.”

 The instrumental was made on April 6, 1965 at United Western Recorders, requiring 44 takes before Brian Wilson could deem it a satisfactory performance. Vocal overdubs followed two months later on June 4 at CBS Columbia Square studios. Wilson recorded the Beach Boys' vocals using Columbia's new 8-track recorder, allowing Love's lead vocals to be triple-tracked. "California Girls" was the first Beach Boys recording to feature vocals from Bruce Johnston  who had joined the group to substitute for Wilson on concert tours.

The song is considered emblematic of the 1960s California Sound. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included it as one of "500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll". In 2010, the Beach Boys' recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
