Gene Pitney - Songs


ABOUT

Gene Pitney

Gene Pitney (February 17, 1941 - April 5, 2006) was a highly acclaimed pop singer with a dramatic style and a prolific songwriter. He began his music career by writing songs for other artists, e.g., the Crystals' "He's A Rebel," Ricky Nelson's "Hello Mary Lou," and Bobby Vee's "Rubber Ball."

From 1961-1970 , he had a long string of hits in the US that included "A Town Without Pity" (1962), "She's A Heartbreaker" (1968), and the Burt Bacharach-Hal David-penned "(The Man Who Shot) Liberty Valance" (1962), "Only Love Can Break A Heart" (1962), and "Twenty Four Hours From Tulsa" (1963). His string of hits continued on the UK charts through 1974.

Through the years, Pitney had a wide international following and toured actively. In 1989, he topped the UK charts with a new version of his 1967 song, "Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart," which he performed as a duet with Marc Almond. Gene Pitney was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
