------ ABOUT THE TUNE ------
"Hello Mary Lou" is a song written by U.S. singer Gene Pitney and Cayet Mangiaracina and performed by Ricky Nelson in English and German in 1961. It reached #9 on the Billboard music charts on May 28, 1961, although the other side of the single, "Travelin' Man", hit #1. In the United Kingdom, where it was the unrivalled A-side, it hit #2, and it was a hit in much of Europe, particularly Norway, where it spent 14 weeks at #1. The song features an influential guitar solo by James Burton, often cited by later guitarists such as Brian May. The song is from his sixth album called Rick Is 21.

------ ABOUT THIS PROJECT ------
After 2 successful projects with Enrico ("Peg O My Heart" and "Blackbird"), as well as one with Sonny ("Hello My Baby"), I though it would be nice to try something all together. The upbeat melody and straightforward barbershop arrangement for "Hello Mary Lou" seemed like the perfect choice. Sonny broguht in his buddy Dieter and we got the project rolling early April. Sonny recorded his lead track first, then I recorded bass, then Dieter the baritone and Enrico finished with the teror track. The videos took but a few days to be shot and within 3 weeks the project was ready! I hope there will be many more, this was the PERFECT collab for me!

------ LYRICS ------
Passed me by one summer day
Flashed those big brown eyes my way
And oh I wanted you forever more
Now I'm not one that gets around
Swear my feet stuck to the ground
And though I never did meet you before

I said "Hello Mary Lou
Goodbye heart
Sweet Mary Lou
I'm so in love with you
I knew Mary Lou
We'd never part
So Hello Mary Lou
Goodbye heart"

Saw your lips, I heard your voice
believe me I just had no choice
Wild horses couldn't make me stay away
Thought about a moonlit night
Arms about good and tight
That's all I had to see for me to say
