I happen to stumble upon this little A-side "None-hit-wonder" on the big auction site, until finding it I had never heard this song before so I snapped it up for less than $5.00.
Vocals by Billy Chambers a 24 year old Florida Southern College Student in 1962. This gem came about during the height of the Cuban Missal Crisis in October of that year, and from what I've found wasn't played but by a hand full of DJ's in Florida only a few times because of it's morbid nature. Once the "Crisis" subsided, the record and its vocal star fell into the footnotes of historical obscurity. Albeit corny, it really is kind of a chilling song when you think about it... very much in the style of late 50's and early 60's "teenage tragedy- you jump I jump" songs (you know, like "Teen Angel" and "Tell Laura I love her").
"I'd rather die with you, than live without you,
and I hope that you feel the same..."
(Makes you want to hold your 'steady' close, doesn't it?)
