Why am I going in this direction?
Spotify offered the following musical suggestion this morning.
Yes, I was a teenager, having turned 13 in October 1962. "The End of the World" reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending March 23, 1963. It spent 6 weeks in the top 10 and charted for 17 weeks overall.
The school that I attended sat, "stately and so grand", on the eastern bank of the Conewango Creek in Warren, Pennsylvania, "just above the dam".
