775-Chris Montez-The More I See You.
1966-Number 3 single.
Best Bit-At 0.18 it’s amazing how many people think this is a female singer.
Back in 1962 Chris Montez has great success with the Rock ‘N’ Roll songs ‘Lets Dance’ and ‘Some Kinda Fun’ but subsequent efforts in the same vein floundered.In 1965 when signed to A and M records,Herb Alpert suggested a different approach,a middle of the road soft ballad sound.Though reluctant at first Montez agreed to go along with it.’The More I See You’ was written in 1945 with music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Mack Gordon,it was first recorded for the film Diamond Horseshoe by Dick Haymes.

1971-Number 8 single.
Best Bit-At 2.32 Not your normal run of the mill love song in any shape or form.
The song is narrated by a man who imagines a relationship with a woman he loves,but he is clever enough to realize that his daydreams are fiction,in fact the woman doesn’t even know he exists.During the late 60s and early 70s producer Norman Whitfield and lyricist Barrett Strong wrote a string of Psychedelic Soul songs for The Temptations,many of the bands fans were yearning for a return to the original soul sound and this is what they delivered.
