Marion Ryan

The stuff I have amazes me. I never heard of Marion Ryan. Neither have you I bet. But here she is.

She was big in England in the 50s, though she only had two hits on the top 20. I have one, and I have no idea where I got it. I tended to pick up songs like this either on random K-Tel wannabe albums, or perhaps on cassettes that had actually been assembled in the UK.

Marion Ryan:

Love Me Forever – The idea of "forever" love is so romantic, and Ms. Ryan delivers her plea with such artlessness that one can't help but be moved. This is a teenage sounding love song in a style that became popular in the early 60s. Think Little Peggy March, Linda Scott etc. A UK hit in the winter of 1958.
