The Next Time

The Next Time by Cliff Richard and The Shadows was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, January 3, 1963 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Released in November 1962, this lightly orchestrated ballad was written by Buddy Kaye and Philip Springer; it was the A Side of the uptempo and stronger "Bachelor Boy". Both songs were used in the 1963 musical Summer Holiday - a vehicle for Cliff. There never was a next time for Cliff, and in one sense there never was a first time, because he never married, as evinced by the B Side, which he co-wrote.
