Art of the Cover - The Shangri-Las' "Remember Walking in the Sand"



softly, softly we'd meet with our lips ...


The sultry Shangri-Las find a lucky biker on the cover to their earliest moment in the sun - the wonderful "Remember (Walking in the Sand)" back in 1964.

Another tale of a cad who stole a young gal's heart, went away but never came back ("it's been two years or so since I saw my baby go".)

A simple yet evocative story of young love destroyed ("this letter came for me; it said that we were through.")

A song with a peerless melody and such amazing vocals!

The song was released as the band's debut single and became a number five hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
