Well, when I went to You Tube to get the song to post here I found this interesting comment from a listener.
"My fondest memory of this song was when our "good old Southern Baptist preacher" got up one Sunday morning and preached to the teenagers on the evil music we listened to on the radio. He used Sugar Shack as an example as he preached about wild and lustful teenage romances and sinful relationships. Half of us hadn't even heard Sugar Shack but the next day we all hurried down to the local record shop and bought up all the copies. Loved that music ,1963 what a year. Sweet Memories!
Funny thing about this guy's comment is that I went to church this past Sunday and heard rock music as part of a church service...yes Springsteen, Coldplay and more. The sermon this special day was about the importance of blending secular music into the 21st century church...here is the link to the minister's blog...http://rj-whenlovecomestotown.blogspot.com/
Here is the song...
My father owned a 1963 Chevy Impala SS that was his pride and joy. In fact my father taught me how to drive in that car! He never let anyone get the best of him in that machine and I remember some pretty scary rides when he would drag race with me in the car!
The next song is a great one about loneliness and love. The song just sounded extra good on the Mass Pike that night!
