I knew it was time to break up with this girl I somehow ended up dating when this song came on the radio and she turned it off. “I HATE that song!” she said, and it was the beginning of the end.
Billy Swan had his first success as a songwriter with “Lover Please,” which Clyde McPhatter recorded in 1962. This was recorded in 1974 on an organ given to him by Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, both of whom he had played with, as a wedding gift. It reached #1 on the Hot 100 as well as on the US and Canadian country charts. Love the message this delivers.
