Morse Code Of Love – Hushabye – 24K Gold Music Shows
“Morse Code of Love” was written by Nick Santos and sang by three reunited members of the original Capris, an American doo wop group, in 1982. The Capris one-hit wonder was “There’s a Moon Out Tonight”, in 1961. This is the year that lead singer Nick Santos began writing “Morse Code of Love”. The song was not finished at that point and the group disbanded after struggling to find success. It was not until twenty years later that Nick fished the song for an oldies show the Capris were asked to perform at. The fresh sound to the golden era of 50’s music was very successful and the Capri’s recorded and released it. The following year The Manhattan Transfer recorded and successfully released the song under the title “Baby Come Back To Me”.
“Hushabye” is a song written in 1959 by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman for the doo-wop vocal group the Mystics. The Mystics were originally called The Overons. Their band manager wanted them to change their name, so the members of the band put names in a hat and randomly drew to see what their new name would be. The Mystics, they became! The Beach Boys also did a cover version of the song in 1964.
