The Puddin' Heads - Now You Say We're Through (1964)

At the forefront of this band was Denny Reed, the teenage performer who released innocent pop songs such as “A Teenager Feels It, Too,” “No One Cares,” and “I’m Comin’ Home” in 1960-1961. Reed was a big fan of Johnny Mathis and Bing Crosby in his youth, receiving much ridicule from his friends because of it. Although he predominately released material as a solo artist, he was briefly in the band The Puddin’ Heads.

I’m uncertain as to when this group was formed, but it was composed of members Denny Reed, John Greek, and Buddy Wayne. The song heard below, released in 1964, was the B-Side to the only single the band ever released. It was co-written by John Greek and “D. Russell,” backed with the A-Side “You Don’t Have to Be Lonely” on Catch Records, and never reached any success on the national charts. It's a polar opposite style which Reed had normally been heard singing. It's also quite unique for it's edgy sound, having been recorded in 1964.

Lyrics:

Let me kiss you
Let me please you
You made me love you
Oh, how I miss you

And now you say we’re through
And now you say we’re through

You whisper sweet things
Life’s complete things
Now we’re parted
I’m broken-hearted

And now you say we’re through
And now you say we’re through

I never wanted you to leave me, darling
I cried a lot since you went away
I think about you every night
And I think of you every day

Let me kiss you
Let me please you
You made me love you
Oh, how I miss you

And now you say we’re through
And now you say we’re through
