Johnny Remember Me

Johnny Remember Me by John Leyton was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, August 31, 1961 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song depicts a man haunted by his dead love imploring him to join her. The ghostly female backup vocals were by a session singer named Lissa Gray. This was originally a death disc but Goddard amended a lyric from "The girl I loved died a year ago" to "The girl I loved and lost a year ago." This song was written by Geoff Goddard, at the last minute, as it was decided that John Leyton needed a song to perform in the program. It was only Goddard's second recorded composition - he went on to pen many compositions for Meek's acts.
