Sea of Heartbreak – Go Tell It On the Mountain – 24K Gold Music Shows
Love songs, or love-gone-wrong songs, come in many varieties. Some are upbeat and happy while others are very somber. “Sea of Heartbreak” takes an upbeat, happy kind of a tune and pairs it with words that are somber, telling the story of the feeling of being lost in a sea of heartbreak. Don Gibson took this unusual pairing of a happy tune with sad words all the way to number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1961. Don enjoyed a long and successful career as a country music singer and songwriter. His most famous work is his signature song, “I Can’t Stop Loving You”, which has been recorded by over 700 different artists.
The song, “Go Tell It On The Mountain” has been around for a many generations. Dating back to the 1800’s, as a African American spiritual, it was John Wesley Work Jr. who took the song and first published it. Many artists have since recorded this popular song. The girls from 24K Gold Music Shows always performed this song with joy and enthusiasm.
