60-years ago this week, “Cathy’s Clown,” by the Everly Brothers, was the  #1 song on Top 40 radio.  First wave Boomers (Zoomers) would be entering 9th grade in the Fall.

“Cathy’s Clown” was the Everly Brothers biggest hit:  #1 for 5-weeks and selling upwards of 8 million records.

It’s a beautiful, immersive ballad with just enough rock to energize the experience,  2-minutes and 20-seconds of musical bliss–“just what the Dr. ordered” — a momentary yet welcome escape from a turbulent and unfamiliar national and global reality.
