Brand New World

Are You Lonely For Me Baby – Shout USA (1967).

Freddie Scott

HEY GIRL – such a soulful recording, and written by Carole King.

Goffin & King

This was played by Dave and the other Dave at the very end of their sessions at the Blue Note Club Manchester. And “Are You Lonely For Me Baby?” was also a huge hit at that club. So too was “Are You Lonely For Me”.

“Hey Girl” was recorded in the very early 1960’s and most obviously it was also a favourite slow number at the original Twisted Wheel. Recently it was revived by the guy who was at the time the boy friend of Christy Brinkley. He may be more famous but she is better looking! And we are not keen on cover versions unless they are extremely good.

He went to school in New York City and later became a songwriter for Columbia Music. He recorded ‘Hey, Girl’ for Colpix and it became a Top Ten hit.
1966 ‘Are You Lonely For Me’ on Shout was his biggest hit reaching number one RnB.

1970 he moved to Probe.

Song Lyrics: Hey Girl – Freddie Scott written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King

Hey, girl, I want you to know
I’m gonna miss you so much if you go (bye bye baby)
And hey, girl, I tell you no lie
Something deep inside of me’s going to die (bye bye baby)
If you say ‘So long’ (bye bye baby)
If this is ‘Goodbye’ (bye bye baby)
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Hey, girl, this can’t be true
How am I supposed to exist without you? (bye bye baby)
Hey, girl, now don’t put me on
What’s gonna happen to me when you’re gone? (bye bye baby)
How will I live (bye bye baby)
How can I go on? (bye bye baby)

How can I go on? (bye bye baby)
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Hey, girl, now sit yourself down
I’m not ashamed to get down on the ground (bye bye baby)
And beg (bye bye baby), beg you to stay (bye bye baby)

Don’t go away (bye bye baby)
Hey, girl (bye bye baby)
No, I beg ya, please don’t go away (bye bye baby)

. Hey, girl (bye bye baby)
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Don’t, don’t go away…..

 Cry To Me/ No One Could Ever Love You
The ‘B’ Side CRY TO ME his version of the song made a hit by Solomon Burke.
