Yes, yes, another love affair up in flames. You could turn into a vengeful stalker and wind up on Court TV. Or you could put this disc on and give in to the healing power of Oldies pop. Let Toni Fisher’s out-of-phase title tune wash over you, then descend through Timi Yuro’s “Hurt,” Roy Orbison’s “I’m Hurtin’,” Little Anthony & the Imperials’ “Hurt So Bad,” and Johnny Tillotson’s “It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin’.” Now it’s time for a good “Cry” courtesy of Johnnie Ray, then Don McLean’s version of Orbison’s “Crying,” J.D. Souther’s Orbison-lite “You’re Only Lonely,” “Mr. Lonely” by Bobby Vinton, and a personal favorite, “Mr. Blue” by the Fleetwoods. Terry Stafford’s “Suspicion” and Del Shannon’s classic “Runaway” complete the half-hour workout. So, there, there dear. Go ahead, let it all out. Of course, laughing helps too, and this collection fits that bill as well.
