    Default Washington Square | The Village Stompers

    We just finished watching Stephen King's series "The Outsider" on HBO, worth watching if you like Stephen King. The song Washington Square is mentioned in an important scene, then played at the end. I'd never heard it, and after researching I found the original song on YouTube. It's by the Village Stompers, a New York group that developed the Folk-Dixie sound in 1963. I really liked the song, it's fun to jam to with the key changes. But the video is amazing, it's from a Greek movie, and I LOVE the way they dance! Take a look see.

    When I was a kid this was a big hit on top 40 radio.

    In November of 63 I was 9 years old, but I don't remember this song. I can remember lots of other songs from that time, but who knows if I remember them from when they were hits, or just hearing them on the oldies station?

    Anyway, cool tune, and great video.
