THE NASHVILLE TEENS - I KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO BE LOVED


THE NASHVILLE TEENS - 'I Know How It Feels To Be Loved'/'Soon Forgotten' (Decca F.12255) October 1965

Although chart success proved to be on the wane in 1965, this single flopped for instance, The Nashville Teens had cameo parts in movies 'Go Go Mania' and 'Gonks Go Beat'. They were also in demand on the gig circuit and enjoyed a sizable following.

Sadly, 'I Know How It Feels To Be Loved'  failed to get much notice and as such is an overlooked disc. The song is a departure from their usual crunching R&B sound, this time around preferring a baroque pop arrangement with harmonies. Some reviews at the time likened it to The Byrds but I don't hear that at all. The harmonies are certainly not tight enough and there ain't no Byrds style '65 jangle.

The song however, is a lost pop gem and I'm pleased to give 'I Know How It Feels To Be Loved' some exposure on Flower Bomb Songs. 'Soon Forgotten' is another pop effort but like the title suggests the 45 was soon forgotten.

  1. So how does one get to hear this overlooked single? Do you not offer links to the songs themselves? Color me confused...

  2. I've added a YouTube video on this one. Sometimes I don't.
