Diana – It’s Just a Matter of Time – 24K Gold Music Shows
24K Gold Music Shows performs two popular songs from the 50’s.
The 1957 song, ‘Diana’ was written and recorded by Paul Anka. Paul wrote this song when he was just a teenager. As so many talented songwriters do, Paul drew inspiration for his song from his own life’s experiences and his crush on an older girl named Diana. The song went on to be a number 1 hit but nothing became of the crush as Paul and Diana went their separate ways.
‘It’s Just a Matter of Time’ was co-written and performed by Brooke Benton in 1959, topped the Billboard rhythm and blues chart and peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart. It is no wonder when you listen to the smooth vocals and the way that Brooke seems to pull those low notes from the bottom of his heart. ‘Just A Matter of Time’ was originally planned for Nat King Cole but it was decided that Brooke would release it himself.
This song launched Benton’s very successful career as a singer and songwriter. He had 49 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100’s charts. One notable mention is Benton’s rendition of ‘The Boll Weevil’ song. Anyone that can take a song about a bug, that had been handed down for generations, and turn it into a #2 hit on the charts years later is a superstar for sure!
