“It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we
can finally hear
- K. T. Jong
DearFriends and Schoolmates,
It's time for another great golden oldie.
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIeY7J9kjg0 - I Hear You Knocking - Smiley Lewis, 1955
|"I Hear You Knocking" (sometimes spelled "I Hear You
Knockin'") is a
rhythm and blues
syncopation, written by
Dave Bartholomew and Pearl King and published in
1955. The original recording was made by
Smiley Lewis, reaching #2 on the
R&B singles chart in 1955.
The lyrics concern a former lover whose knocking at the door will not be answered. A similar lyrical theme appears in the earlier songs "Keep A-Knockin'" (1935) and "Open the Door, Richard" (1947), to which "I Hear You Knocking" may be considered an answer song.
The song was popularized in 1955 in a cover version by Gale Storm in a recording on Dot Records catalog number 15412, reaching #2 on the Billboard charts. The song reached #3 on the Cash Box Best-Selling Record chart...

|“It is sometimes
difficult to view the problems and permissiveness around us and not
become discouraged. I have found that, rather than dwelling on the
negative, if we will take a step back and consider the blessings in our
lives, including seemingly small, sometimes overlooked blessings, we can
find greater happiness.”
