My best friend, when I was a kid, had many boyfriends. She also had a favorite song and whenever she was “in love,” it became “their song.” Otherwise, it was merely “her” song.
“Sacred” by the Castells is one of those non memorable songs from the 1960s. Songs like this were the meat and potatoes of pop radio. Shows like American Bandstand played them all. Easy to dance to, with a simple melody. Anyone with even the hint of a voice could sing along. The Castells didn’t have great voices either. Listening to the song now makes me wince.
My friend also was just a bit dyslexic, so as often as not, she wrote that her favorite song was “Scared.” Perhaps there was a message there. So now, without further ado, here’s SCARED BY THE CASTELLS!
