Needles and Pins

“Needles and Pins” was written by Jack Nitzsche and Sonny Bono (yes, *that* Sonny Bono).  The song was originally recorded by Jackie DeShannon in 1963. Although her version never cracked the US top 40, I recommend it over the Searchers better known version from 1964. 62 more words
