In this heartbreaking #3 hit, Miss Toni Fisher describes her valiant attempt to go on until her ‘big hurt’ ends. Signet Records founder Wayne Shanklin used a flange phasing shift to create the swirling, whooshing sound that gives the recording of The Big Hurt a unique and identifiable sound. It was Miss Toni Fisher’s only record to break into the top-twenty.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"Now it begins, day after day, this is my life, ticking away"
