Songs of Summer 1950 (Part 3 of 3)

Continued...  A romance in the Hamptons wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the beach.  For this brief series, June’s and Art’s beach photographs will be accompanied by the number 1 hit songs of 1950.

The #1 song in August 1950 was “Goodnight, Irene,” a folk standard performed by The Weavers with an orchestral arrangement by Gordon Jenkins.

“Irene, goodnight,
Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene,
Goodnight, Irene,
I'll see you in my dreams.”

And then June must have taken the camera and snapped the only picture in the bunch of Art on the beach.

(For Wednesday – A trip inside the Windmill Restaurant.)
