A deep shade of blue is always there

The Walker Bothers were not brothers, in fact none of them were born with the name Walker. Scott Walker was actually born as Noel Scott Engel in 1943 in Hamilton, Ohio,  Gary Walker  was born Gary Leeds in 1942  in Glendale, California – he was the drummer and also vocalist  and John Joseph Maus  who was born in New York City in 1943 and sadly died in 2011, became John Walker.

Their sod was lush and gorgeous and they had more hits and were more popular in the UK than in the USA, and although they recorded many songs, these are the ones I remember:

  • Make It Easy on Yourself
  • My Ship Is Coming In
  • Young Man Cried
  •  Don’t Want to Hear It Any More
  • Deadlier Than the Male
  • The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore
  • Just Say Goodbye
  • I Need You
 ‘The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore‘  was originally sung by Frankie Valli but became a greater hit with the Walker Brothers. Cher and Keane  have also recorded it.
Loneliness is the cloak you wear
A deep shade of blue is always there
The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore
The moon ain’t gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you’re without love, baby
Emptiness is the place you’re in
There’s nothing to lose but no more to win
The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore
The moon ain’t gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you’re without love
Lonely, without you, baby
Girl, I need you
I can’t go on
The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore
The moon ain’t gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you’re without love
Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio
