Phil Spector was born.
“Every Breath I Take,” by Gene Pitney, just misses the Top Forty. The song, written by Gary Goffin and Carole King, features a monumental Phil Spector production.
Gene Pitney’s “Only Love Can Break a Heart” peaks at #2. It’s held back from the top by the Crystals’ “He’s a Rebel,” penned by Pitney and produced by Phil Spector.
