Pop Sensation: Bobby Vinton
Equipped with an angelic voice and singing sincere songs about undying love, Vinton surprised everyone by generating 30 Top 40
songs in the 1960s and 1970s, and 24 of his albums made the Billboard Top 200. Vinton's romantic love songs had particular appeal to
young fans, but later in his career he was able to adjust his style to appeal to adult audiences. He had remarkable staying power for a
teen idol, continuing to record songs that registered on the charts for well over a decade. After topping the charts with "Roses Are
Red" in 1962, he reached the top position again in 1963 with his version of "Blue Velvet," which had been recorded by the Clovers in
1955, and "There! I Said It Again." In 1964 he topped the Hit Parade with "Mr. Lonely, Young fans made up the core of Vinton's audience,
and they eagerly bought up his recordings of heartrending love ballads.
Timing was part of the formula for Vinton's popularity, since pop music was in a lull in the early 1960s. The doo-wop music of the 1950s
had run its course, the Beatles' "British invasion" had yet to occur, and fresh new idols for music fans were in short supply. When the
Beatles and other English bands arrived in the United States in the mid-1960s, however, they generally undercut the popularity of
gentle crooners like Bobby Vinton.
Nevertheless, Vinton continued to stay on the charts with songs such as "Please Love Me Forever" in 1967 and "I Love How You Love
Me," which made Number One in 1969 and again in 1972 with covers of old songs such as "Sealed With a Kiss," which had been a hit for
Brian Hyland in 1962.
Bobby ended his 13-year pact with Epic Records to sign a new contract with ABC Records. Much to Epic's dismay, Vinton brought ABC
a gold record in 1974 with the Top Ten single "My Melody of Love," which included some lines in Polish. His popularity again bolstered,
Vinton got his own syndicated television series, The Bobby Vinton Show, which remained on the air from 1975 to 1978.
While other stars who were his peers during his early days as a pop sensation had long faded from the scene, Bobby has managed to
maintain a loyal following.
