Saturday Night Retro

Here’s a song that was originally written back in the early-1960s and remade on several occasions by various music acts during that decade and into the 1970s and beyond. Canadian singer / songwriter Terry Jacks produced a version of it for the legendary Beach Boys, but then he realized that it would work out better if he simply recorded the song himself. He was right. He turned it into a U.S. # 1 gold pop radio smash 35 years ago in 1974. It’s “Seasons In The Sun”, and I present it to you for your ‘Saturday Night Retro’ review.

Here he is as he appeared 35 years ago performing this smash:

And here he is just last year at the age of 64 performing it again:
