A Musical Note: Miss Toni Fisher – The Big Hurt

Set the Way-Back machine for 1959, Sherman!”

“Gee, Mr. Peabody, where are we going this time?” 

To a music studio where Miss Toni Fisher is about to record a very special song.  Sherman?  I want you to notice the “wind tunnel” effect in this song.  It is said that this was the first time that “flanging” was ever used in popular music.”

“Gee, Mr. Peabody!  I can’t wait!”

  1. Now it begins, now that you’ve gone
    Needles and pins, twilight till dawn
    Watching that clock till you return
    Lighting that torch and watching it burn

    Now it begins, day after day
    This is my night, ticking away
    Waiting to hear footsteps that say
    “Love will appear and this time to stay”

    Oh, each time you go
    I try to pretend
    It’s over at last
    This time the big hurt will end

    Now it begins, now that you’ve gone
    Needles and pins, twilight till dawn
    But if you go, come back again
    I wonder when, oh when will it end?
    The big hurt

    The big hurt
    The big hurt

  2. Wow! Like I remember the sound, but not the singer or the sound. 1959 eh! I was l7. The year of ‘The Big Hurt’ for me. Wish I’d known……
    Thank you.
