1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
Heartaches by the Number recorded by Guy Mitchell introduced October 5, 1959
Written by Harlan Howard
Produced by Mitch Miller
Guy Mitchell’s jaunty pop/country recordings began in 1950 with My Heart Cries For You and ended in 1959 with another one, Heartaches by the Number. Guy Mitchell opines that while he loves her more every day, she loves him less.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"Troubles by the score, every day you love me less, each day I love your more"
