Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Our Day Will Come” by Ruby And The Romantics

The magical ingredient of this song that sets it apart from all others is the swirling roller rink organ. Ruby And The Romantics’ million seller “Our Day Will Come” was their first hit back in 1963. While many think they were a one hit wonder, their follow-up single, “My Summer Love,” rose to #16 on the charts. They were also responsible for the original version of the song “Hey There Lonely Boy” which became a hit for Eddie Holman as “Hey There Lonely Girl,” and “Hurting Each Other” which became a big hit for The Carpenters. The group featured Ruby Nash on lead vocals with Ed Roberts, George Lee, Ronald Mosley and Leroy Fan on support vocals. Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons brought “Our Day Will Come” back to the #11 position on the charts in 1975 with their remake of the song.
