PHOTO INDEX: WARM'S HARRY WEST HOLDING A RECORD, NO WORD IF IT "A KISS OF DEATH RECORD".
HARRY'S KISS OF DEATH
If you were a listener to WARM's Harry West in the 60s, 70, and 80s, you'd hear him pronounce "The Harry West Kiss of Death Record". West described it as "a song destined to go nowhere because I like it". Sometimes Harry was right but more times than not he was wrong. Here are three songs from three different decades that Harry liked....and they became hits.
From the 60s, The Turtles, "She'd Rather Be With Me".
In the 70s, it was this ballad by Englebert Humperdink.
And in the 80s it was "That's Love" by Jim Capaldi.
