"Poetry In Motion" ~ Johnny Tillotson (1960) Cadence Records #1384 Flip side of, "Princess, Princess" Words & Music by: P. Kaufman & M. Anthony
This is the tune that made Johnny Tillotson a "Teen Idol" . Others included: DREAMY EYES, WITHOUT YOU, & IT KEEPS RIGHT ON-A HURTIN'. POETRY IN MOTION is one of my personal favorites because of "the sound". It rates with Bobby Darin's DREAM LOVER, Steve Lawrence's PRETTY BLUE EYES, Bobby Rydell's LITTLE BITTY GIRL & Paul Anka's PUT YOUR HEAD ON MY SHOULDER. It's all in "the sound" . Johnny Tillotson performed POETRY IN MOTION on Dick Clark's AMERICAN BANDSTAND on Thursday - September 22, 1960. The song first hit the charts on October 10, 1960, stayed on the charts for 15 weeks , & peaked at #2.
