Biografia

Gene teve uma carreira interessante e de boa qualidade mas um tanto curiosa. Como cantor, só fez sucesso interpretando composições de outros com as músicas “Every Breath I Take”, “That Girl Belongs To Yesterday”, “I’m Gonna Be Strong”, “Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart”, “Nessuno Mi Puoi Giudicare”, “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”, “24 Hours From Tulsa”, enquanto suas próprias canções ajudaram muito outros intérpretes como Ricky Nelson com “Hello Mary Lou”, Crystals com “He’s A Rebel” e Bobby Vee com “Rubber Ball”. Na época da Jovem Guarda “Marianne” foi interpretada por Jerry Adriani.

“That Girl Belongs To Yesterday”, lançada por Pitney, foi nada menos que a primeira composição de Mick Jagger/Keith Richards a entrar nas paradas inglesa e norte-americana, no início de 1964. A música foi apresentada a Pitney por Andrew Oldham, empresário dos Stones e que acabara de fechar contrato como assessor de imprensa de Pitney na Inglaterra; inclusive, Pitney participou na faixa “Little By Little” do primeiro LP dos Stones, tocando piano (embora o dono-da-verdade Roy Carr negue, dizendo que foi Ian Stewart, em seu livro The Rolling Stones - An Illustrated Record) e foi homenageado na faixa “Spector And Pitney Came Too”, ainda inédita em disco oficial dos Stones. Gene Pitney faleceu em 5 de abril de 2006, aos 65 anos

    For anyone who is interested, EMI release on 23 April 2012 'Completely Cilla: 1963-1973' - a 5CD boxset of material by the British pop singer Cilla Black who began her career alongside The Beatles in Liverpool during the 1960s. Cilla went on to chart 18 Top 40 singles during that decade and toured across the world with many of the other sixties greats. The new set contains 139 recordings all produced by George Martin (the man behind The Beatles' hits) and comes with a bonus Region 0 / NTSC DVD of many previously unreleased BBC TV music performances.

    If the only thing this man had ever done was write He's A Rebel, it would have been more than enough

    Gene had a terrific voice & delivery. He is sadly missed but his legacy continues on his recordings. Many fond memories from the 'baby boomer' generation of the 60s & 70s. Go to www.findagrave.com to see his Biography & burial details ~~ just click on Famous Grave Search. Rest In PEACE. God bless~!

    to chailey watts- the song you're looking for is called "animal crackers (in cellophane boxes)." You can find it on a few best of type things (check allmusic.com). The single (from 1967- not originally released as part of any album) was Pitney's sole attempt at garage-psyche. It was written by Bonner & Gordon, who also wrote all of the Turtles' hits that year. Enjoy!
